Young chefs serve up Jamaican treats

STUDENTS from a Weston academy cooked up a range of exotic Jamaican foods for a major event in the town.

Pupils at Hans Price Academy in Marchfields Way catered for North Somerset Council’s Bringing Communities Together event.

The unusual recipes year 10 and 11 students cooked up included jerk chicken, plantain salad and spicy butternut soup.

The annual council event, which is staged to celebrate cultural diversity within North Somerset, took place at the Winter Gardens at the weekend.

School spokeswoman Esther Lawton said: “This was the perfect opportunity to showcase the talented young chefs we have at the academy.
