From 2016 the new GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition curriculum will be taught in all UK schools, with emphasis on understanding and enjoying both British and international cuisines; encourage students and teachers to develop their cooking skills; create their own recipes; cook and eat healthily. This new qualification may even encourage more students to consider a career in food.
Chinese cuisine has always been a very popular choice for many British and considered to be tasty, nutritious and healthy. In light of the new curriculum, Ming-Ai (London) Institute together with our partner, the world-renowned food sauce manufacturer, Lee Kum Kee (Europe) Ltd, are launching this ground-breaking project FUN:) HEALTHY CHINESE CUISINE AMBASSADORS.
The aims of this initiative are to:
- Present and demonstrate to students and teachers the preparation and cooking of healthy Chinese dishes
- Actively encourage students and teachers on how to prepare and cook Chinese dishes and discover the pleasures of enjoying Chinese food
- Become an Ambassador of FUN:) and promote Chinese cuisine to their friends and families
FUN:) HEALTHY CHINESE CUISINE AMBASSADORS will commence from the 2015-16 Academic Year and will be a 5-year project. Our objective is to reach out to 280 schools across the UK and conduct approximately 40+ Teachers Training Workshops.
