Mini Chefs cook up a storm!
Last week saw the conclusion of another successful MiniChef Summer School at DKIT. Groups of budding chefs, aged between 6 and 12, spent 5 days cooking up a storm in the professional kitchens expertly guided to produce a selection of sweet and savoury dishes.
The creamy chicken curry with rainbow rice and the swirly chocolate meringues were two of the favourites, and with the children bringing the dishes prepared each day home with them, the parents were equally impressed. Watch out Jamie Oliver & Rachel Allen!........perhaps the start of a new career!

"I live here in the States and have never heard this expression used in this way.", Oliveira.
"You're absolutly correct! In the US cooking up a storm is a cooking a huge big meal or meals"(...), Leary.
Será uma confusão com "kick up a storm"?
'storm'=a fit of anger; a ruckus; storm out=to leave a place in anger; in a storm=excited, confused. Wentworth & Flexner.
Se Oliveira & Leary estiverem certos, todo mundo está errado!
