TEENAGE chefs had the chance to learn about the culinary delights of Spain during a visit to the country.

The year 10 students from St Katherine’s School in Pill travelled to Spain as part of the Comenius Programme, which is organised and funded by the British Council and is aimed at connecting UK schools with others around the world.

The two-year project includes exchange trips and is focused on teaching youngsters about other countries’ cuisine and culture.

The pupils from the Ham Green school attended Hurtado de Medoza, the most highly-acclaimed catering college in Grenada, where they worked with hospitality students from other partner countries to produce a four-course lunch.

In October last year, the Comenius project started when St Katherine’s pupils visited Poland. In October of this year, pupils from Europe will be staying with families in Pill as part of the exchange.
