Saracens - That's A Wrap!

That's A Wrap!


The final Scrummy! Food Creation Challenge for the 2012/2013 season was held at Capital City Academy last week.

Armed with their Scrummy! aprons and a desire to win, groups of pupils from Barham Primary, Leopold Primary, Mora Primary, St Josephs Junior and Wembley Primary School arrived prepped and ready to take part in their final challenge.

Parents, teachers and fellow pupils witnessed the transformation of the Year 5/6 pupils into ambitious chefs; chopping, slicing and tasting the fresh ingredients to prepare their Greek Salad and Fruit Dessert.

To add to the occasion, Saracens Tom Jubb and Nick Auterac dropped in as guest judges to assist pupils in preparing their dishes and they even had time for an interesting Q&A session with the supporters. According to the pupils, Nick is 27 years old and weighs 150kg!!

All teams served up innovative and tasty treats and it was hard to separate the best dishes.  The eventual winners were Leopold Primary school, who prepared a scrumptious Greek Salad and a Fruit Surprise.

The afternoon was rounded off with a certificate presentation, led by Tom and Nick, to all participants of the Food Creation Final and those that had completed the six week Scrummy! Project.

Each school that has taken part in the project will now offer the pupils an opportunity to continue their love of food through an extra-curricular cooking club in their school.

“My daughter has begun to show an interest in how healthy her meals are cooked are. She enjoys helping prepare food and enjoys talking about what she's learnt.” – Parent, Wembley Primary School

Scrummy! is an interactive healthy lifestyle programme developed and delivered by Saracens Community coaches and Let’s Get Cooking, Children’s Food Trust. This six week programme aims to educate 10-11 year olds on the importance of maintaining a healthy balanced lifestyle and improving their practical cooking skills in everyday life.

So far, the Saracens Sport Foundation has engaged with 1900 young people, school staff and parents through this project. They will be continuing their work in September delivering the project to a further 10 primary schools in Enfield and Broxbourne.
