Armagh receive a special cookery demonstration from award winning chef, Michael Deane. Deane, who held a Michelin star at his flagship restaurant in Belfast for over 10 years, visited the school as a competition prize for early registration to this year’s Big Lunch event. Deane is a celebrity ambassador of The Big Lunch, a UK wide initiative devised by the Eden Project and funded by The Big Lottery Fund. This year’s event was held at the beginning of June and aimed to get neighbours, schools, church and sports groups to sit down together to have lunch, thus building relationships and strengthening bonds within communities. Principal at The Cope Primary School, Mrs Jennifer Bartholomew said; “We liked the idea of holding a Big Lunch at the school, and did so in early June â€" staff and pupils all sat down together, to a Christmas dinner of all things! We were forced to cancel our Christmas lunch in December due to the snow and so this was the perfect excuse to reschedule it. “When we heard we’d won a prize to have renowned chef Michael Deane out to the school as a result of registering to have a Big Lunch, we were thrilled. It was a superb opportunity for the P7 children who’ve been involved in cookery as an after school activity and a lovely treat coming up to the end of term,” she added. The children helped Michael create the following dishes; •Pasta with prawns, chilli and roquette •Pineapple with coconut sorbet •Asparagus risotto topped with parmesan •Thai fishcake, slaw and mayo •Steak with bluecheese, breadcrumbs, gravy and polenta pancake Commenting on the demo, Michael Deane said; “It was a real pleasure to come along to The Cope Primary School to cook with the kids. They were really keen to get involved and seemed to enjoy themselves. “I’m heartened to hear they held a Big Lunch. It’s almost becoming a thing of the past for communities to sit down, take their time and chat over a meal but I believe that it's the best way to engage and connect with one another. That's why I've been encouraging the people of Northern Ireland to get involved,” he added. Grainne McCloskey, The Big Lunch representative in Northern Ireland said; "We are very keen to see schools getting involved. A lot of communities, such as the one in Loughgall, really revolve around the school and we all know that many friendships begin at the school gates but with many parents working, an event like The Big Lunch gives everyone a chance to mingle and share experiences. “That's why we're delighted to hear that The Cope Primary School is planning to invite grandparents of the pupils and the wider community to come along to their Big Lunch in 2012," she said. The cookery demonstration was held on ‘Mummies’ Day’ a special event which saw the Mother of each child invited into the school, as the school had previously held a ‘Daddies’ Day’. Mrs Bartholomew said; “We had almost 100 Mums take part in activities such as choir practice, recounting their school memories and a picnic lunch but the icing on the cake was having Michael out to cook for everyone. We’d like to extend our thanks to him for giving up his time and rustling up some delicious food for us all to try!” For more information on The Big Lunch and how you can take part in the 2012 event, please visit www.thebiglunch.com The Big Lunch is led by the Eden Project, funded by the Big Lottery Fund and in 2011 was supported by MasterCard and EDF Energy.
