VISUALLY impaired youngsters got busy in the kitchen with a cooking master class.

The group of nine, aged from 13 to 17, cooked spicy samosas, wedges and a crumble at The Cooking School, Dean Clough, Halifax. Executive chef Matthew Benson-Smith led the session and said there was some fantastic talent on show.

“The group was outstanding. They’ve visited us once before and it was superb to see how much they are progressing.

“When I’ve shown adults how to make samosas it takes them a while to pick it up but they made eight each and were brilliant first time. They have a real passion for it.

“There’s a couple who could be potential masterchefs.”

Calderdale Council mobility and inclusion officer Sue Mort, who helped to organise the trip, said: “Today was a fantastic opportunity to raise their aspirations as they were able to cook in a fabulous kitchen whilebeing supported by professional chefs.”
