A collaboration between a Brisbane high school and a local bakery is giving new meaning to supporting local as they team up to feature special creations from eager students.
Year seven students from Fortitude Valley State Secondary College had their dishes selected by several local businesses, including the locally-famous King Street Bakery, to sell over a week-long period in October.
FVSSC students were learning about the importance of nutrition to their overall health and wellbeing in their ‘Future Fit’ classes. Their end of term task was to create a unique and healthy recipe for one of the local food outlets. The most creative recipes were then pitched to the businesses at the end of the term, with a few selected to feature on the menu.
Starting on October 26, King Street Bakery featured Storm’s Greek Yoghurt Bowl, Grace’s baked crispy potato and egg with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and cheese, Bella’s amazing quiche with short crust pastry, honey smoked ham, mushrooms and comte cheese, served with tomato chutney, Frankie’s mushroom omelette, and lastly, Greta’s great granola jar.
Fortitude Valley State Secondary College only opened this year with a year seven cohort, and is the first school to be opened in the inner city Brisbane in over 50 years.
