BELAZU workshops at Whitefield - Buy our sauces!

Blog Header Image

This term we have again had our friends from Belazu's Fresh Enterprise programme running creative cooking workshops with some of our Year 7 students. Fresh Enterprise teaches secondary school students about the food industry by giving them the opportunity to create their own food products and experience the journey from concept to store shelf.

In the first session, students worked in groups to develop their own sauce or paste, using a wide range of ingredients from aubergine and sun dried tomatoes to chilli and paprika. After selecting their ingredients, these were blended together to create a complimentary flavour profile for their sauce. 

Students then tasted each sauce and voted for their favourite, with the winners being announced as L'Marian, Stella and Tudor, who created an aubergine and pesto paste. These students were then selected to have a follow up marketing session to develop their sauce further and to learn about the next stage of product development.

WF Belazu Sauces

We currently have previous sauces developed by our students available to buy online and in school. Whitefield students have had three sauces developed with Belazu, Summer Sunset, Smoky Delight and Blushing Beets.

Our current sauces are available in school, where any purchase proceeds will go towards investing back into the school catering department.

Blushing Beets is available online here
- Amazing with feta cheese
- Add to mash potato for flavour

Smoky Delight is available online here
- A tapenade that works well with fish, meat or in pasta

Keep an eye out for updates with our latest sauce potentially in development. We are hopeful that our students' new product will make it through the next stage of development, facing a panel of industry experts! Good luck to L'Marian, Stella and Tudor.
