Cultural Diversity Evening

On Wednesday 9th March, Wingfield Academy held a Cultural Diversity / International Food Evening. This gave the opportunity to try some of the food that has been served on our 'Try Something Different Tuesdays' where each week students are offered a meal from a different country, from Cuban Meatloaf to Chicken Korma.

To complement the food there was a selection of entertainment consisting of music and dance from around the world and a cooking demonstation from our Head Chef, Kevin Flynn.

The following foods were available to sample on the evening (click the dish for a how-to guide from Kev's Cookbook):
