Pupils mixing it with the best

SCONES and chocolate chip cookies brought smiles to little faces as Youngtown Primary School pupils visited Country Club Tasmania yesterday.

The grade 1 and 2 pupils were treated to a look into the Prospect Vale complex's Terrace kitchen, where chefs Shane Spencer and Jess Howe conducted food experiments and helped happy pupils bake.

The school first linked with the Country Club about two years ago, rekindling its connection recently to give pupils a sneak peek into the hospitality industry.

Budding Masterchef and Youngtown Primary School pupil Jordan Cassidy said his favourite thing to cook was dinner for his family.

He said he most looked forward to eating the finished product after yesterday's excursion.

A pouting Jordan said it was unlikely he would be baking treats for his family last night.

``Today it's (sister) Sienna's turn,'' he said.

Country Club Tasmania will play host to pupils from the school again next week.
