In a quest to find food that children love and want to eat, whilst at the same time being healthy and nutritious, Lancaster House enlisted the help of a team of school children from Scotforth Church of England Primary School in Lancaster. The creativity and the passion for food that they expressed proved inspirational and helped shaped the new Sam’s Menu at The Foodworks Restaurant, Lancaster House. On 4th June the children were invited to the hotel where Chef had prepared a taster menu, transforming their creative ideas to an edible reality.
Low Wood Bay also welcomed a group of local children who became Sam’s ‘Taster Team’ for the day. Wearing specially created Chef’s hats, the children were tasked with reviewing the new Low Wood Bay Sam’s menu. Each dish was carefully and helpfully tasted and reviewed and the feedback passed on Sam who was so grateful for their help, he was inspired to write personally a few lines …
A Thank You From Sam
A great big thank you to each little friend
On whose trusty taste buds I do depend
I liked your remarks on each new dish,
From “Scrumptious”,”Amazing”to “Oh, lovely fish”.
It was good to hear excited voices,
Creating meals from all the choices.
Though choosing pudds took you a while,
I’m glad each mouthful made you smile.
Denise hoped Lydia would leave her some,
but a clean plate was all she left for Mum.
When you gave each meal their own special mark,
What else could I do but joyfully bark !!
Eleven out of ten the top score
Just wait ’till I tell Boris the boar.
The only words I have left to say,
Are “Happy faces brighten my day”
Bye for now,
