CROPS grown by teenagers were transformed into a delicious three course meal during a cookery masterclass.

Twelve pupils from Stamford Queen Eleanor School have been tending their vegetable crops during lunch breaks and spare time.

Owners of Stamford Cookery School, Thierry Daugeron and Denise Taylor, were inspired to support the youngsters after hearing of their dedication.

They prepared stuffed peppers, a tart of tomatoes and herbs served with green leaves with strawberries dipped in chocolate to finish.

Denise said: “The children were fantastic to work with; they have dedicated so much of their time to growing this delicious produce and were delighted with the three courses they finished with.

“A few of them confessed to not being overly keen on actually eating vegetables, but our session showed how to use vegetables as part of a tasty family meal.”
