St Thomas Moore Primary School has been on a sensory adventure.
Year three and four pupils had the opportunity to get involved in the Week of Tastes program, which enabled the children to connect with food they may have been yet to try.
Kings Bridge Bar and Restaurant head chef Bradley Hull visited the school to teach the children about the origin of food, how it is prepared, and how it tastes.
“It was great to work with the kids,” he said.
“I really stepped outside of my comfort zone.”
Hull cooked dishes such as sous vide chicken breast, sauteed fennel, carrots, and pan seared gummy shark for the pupils to try.
Pupils were also able to try other sensory activities.
One involved putting on a blindfold to try foods in the five taste groups of amami, sweet, sour, salty, and bitter.
Teacher Denise Morgan said it was the first year the school had participated in the program, and as the children were so engaged and involved they would do it again next year.
