When studentcooking.tv came to Devonshire Hall I wasn’t quite sure what to expects. Talking to Mick the Miner I became very confused when he was talking about taking Jamie Oliver down underground in a mine shaft when I realised ‘Oh he actually is a miner!’ and that it wasn’t a random chef’s nickname. Everything started to make sense! We had a lively group of students gathered to take part in the cooking and that, coupled with Mick the Miner’s epiphany-like attitude regarding what he was teaching us to cook(‘It’ll change your life’ said in a thick Northern accent featured heavily in Mick’s speech), led to a brilliant time had by all! This was much to the dismay and envy of all the catered students queueing for dinner in the dining hall!
The studentcooking.tv team were all great to meet, very friendly and also very informative about all things foody! The food we learnt to cook, chicken with posh ham, was fantastically tasty and has become one of my own specialities! When it was time to go the team packed up in no time at all it was hard to imagine after that they had been there at all! We do however all remember the couple of hours of fun we had with studentcooking.tv with great fondness. Thanks for coming!
