International Chefs Day 2015 - Kerala, India

Our community in Paravur consists of mostly fishermen and daily wage earners. The only school in this community is the,

GOVERNMENT UPPER PRIMARY SCHOOL, Kurumandal B, South Paravur, Kollam Dist., Kerala – 691301

Principal: Mrs. G. Indira Devi, +91 9746980044, indiradevig01@gmail.com  

Number of Students : 192

Number of Staff : 20

Standards : LKG, UKG, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th & 7th

Total Girls : 102

As part of creating awareness about hygiene and health, just last week, we had taken a class on 15th, on the occasion of Global Handwashing Day.

In continuation of that, we felt that the occasion of the International Chefs Day would give us an opportunity on lines with the same theme – “Health”. 

Therefore we were given the opportunity by Smt. Indira Devi to conduct ia class today at 1100hrs.

Chef Narayanan Nair,  first began by telling the children the meaning of term “Chef” and the importance of the Day. Chef also educated the children about healthy food and organinc ingrediants.

Thereafter Chef took a demo class for making Rava Kesari. The Ghee used for the demo was Organic (by Aroma Fresh, cow ghee), sugar was not used. Instead, jaggery was used.

The reason to make this dish was that

  1. Easily available main ingredient
  2. Relatively low price
  3. Ease of preparation

We had also taken pre-prepared Rava Kesari (200 pcs), which was made earlier today for distributing amongst the children in banana leafs. The Demo Rava Kesari was also shared amongst the teachers.

The programme concluded by 1130 hrs.

The smiles on the childrens faces said it all!
