Waitrose Visit

Our Waitrose Trip

A few weeks ago our class took a trip to Waitrose; it was so much fun because we even got to be a chef for the day. The food that we made smelt really bad, but it was surprisingly tasty! After we had finished making a smoked mackerel pâté (recipe below), we took a tour all around the store. We even got to go in a -32 degrees freezer (by the way it was freezing). Then we took a trip to the Waitrose vans and the vans were extremely high. We went back inside and went in all the storage rooms. Did you know that stores like Waitrose get all their Easter stuff in just before Christmas? After that we did a disgusting fish quiz, it was horrible picking up all the wet and gooey fish. So we decided to go back in the cookery room and have a taste of it. We also had a drink because if we didn’t like it, we could have a nice refreshing drink. Then we took a slow and calm walk back to school, waiting to get through the security doors, some children got asked to carry a super heavy bag full of the pâtés.
