Richard Forster about to give a demonstration.
The demonstration includes the students joining in from their own work stations at the same time to make the learning experience more helpful.
Martin Blackmore chose red peppers to cut up.
Rossie Smith went for green peppers.
Sometimes it’s eggs!
But what will the end product be??
Well, chocolate roulade to be more specific.
Or a strawberry sponge cream log.
As always served with a smile.
