Ag plot to plate

STUDENTS from four Sydney schools cooked and served meals made with produce from their own agriculture plots at a paddock to plate dinner in Sydney last week.

Agriculture students from Bede Polding at South Windsor, Crestwood High at Baulkham Hills, Oakhill College at Castle Hill and The King’s School at Parramatta, all pitched in to create a memorable meal for the School Harvest dinner at Sydney Showground, for their teachers and parents.

Guests enjoyed slow roasted Angus/Belted Galloway sirloin with smoked tomatoes and spring onions, herb roasted lamb rumps with braised leeks and cauliflower puree, and a chicken terrine with a baby beetroot salad.

University of Western Sydney Adjunct Fellow of the School of Science and Health and schools harvest co-ordinator Stephen Blunden said the event was a celebration of the produce grown from school farms.

Held in conjunction with the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW, he said the program – only a few years old – aimed to expose students to career opportunities across the food chain in agriculture and food production.

Keeping extra busy in the kitchen that night was Year 10 King’s student Lachlan Gregory (pictured) from Parramatta.
