students of St. Saviour’s and St. Olave’s school were given the fantastic opportunity to work with School Food Matters on a project to raise money for the charity Fareshare, a food poverty organization which diverts good food destined for the bin to worthy causes. Students took part in master classes in bread and soup making at Borough Market and were also taught how to transform food waste into valuable ingredients. The students were amazed to see how they could transform vegetable peelings and leftover bits of vegetables into a delicious stock.

Chef Nicole Pisani took the students on a tour of Borough Market to look at the array of different vegetables, herbs and spices, which gave them lots of ideas for soup recipes and decided upon a tasty spicy roasted vegetable soup recipe, so good it passed the Borough Market Food Quality Panel! Sales of the soup raised a whopping £138 for Fareshare; equivalent to 800 meals!

Perhaps a recipe for success in life can be drawn from a comment made by one of the students on the day, “From our soup training we learned that every little ingredient adds more flavour!”
