Thomas cook

I know he's only 13 but School has recently asked the kids to choose their technology subject for GCSE. Sounds ludicrous but it actually a good idea in that this subject and its 60% coursework will be out of the way before year 11. To that end Thomas has chosen Catering. We won’t know for sure if he's been successful for some time yet. However he is adamant. SO, new rule, Thomas makes Sunday dinner. We will do other things in the hols I’m sure but we started last night with a simple but mega cottage pie.

I have his permission to show and tell, so here he is. My hugely proud Son showing off the fruits of his work.

Now considering he was in a mood before we started I think it ended well. Apron helped a little.

The pie was tremendous, it was accompanied by carrot and Swede mash , peas and Yorkshire puddings.

  1. am loving the fact that your 13 year old son allowed this post - how nice to see his confidence in himself - and I love cottage pie!
    Best wishes from another Yorkshire but stuck in Essex lass

  2. You put me to shame Louise -I've been really slack about teaching my boys (14 and 15) to cook. I think a spot of weekend cooking might be a good idea for them.

    Thomas your pie looks awesome :o)

  4. Wow excellent!I'm not suprised he was proud of himself.
    My 11 year old got an Usborne Cookbook for boys in his stocking and made chilli con carne the week before last which amazed both him and me.
    Isn't it lovely to see how proud of themselves they are? (And also it is scary to see how different your 13 year old looks to my 11 year old - we obviously have some very big changes coming up very soon!)

  5. Wow what a really lovely photo of Thomas! Am delighted to hear that Thomas is doing catering at school (Grandma will be helpful to!!). Cookery is relaxing and rewarding especially when you get to eat what you have created. Loads of love to you all. Ami sends hugs too xx

  6. Well done Thomas! The pie looks fabulous, I bet it was very tasty. My oldest has loved to cook for years. Having him home from college over the winter break was fabulous, he would create lovely meals for us to have as soon as we got home from work.

  7. He looks professional to me, friendly but focused and neat, tidy and wonderful posture. All important when trying to impress anyone. Well done Thomas!
