Smoothie making was the order of the day when 60 schoolchildren took part in a workshop run by Tesco.

The youngsters, from Milton Mount Primary, in Pound Hill, enjoyed the workshop as part of their end of term activity day.

The event was part of a package of food-themed activities at the store, in Hazelwick Avenue, Three Bridges, has been involved with over the past few weeks.

Teacher Heather Eveleigh said: “The smoothie workshops were a big hit and were a great way to talk about fresh fruit and veg as well as encourage some of the pupils to try something they may have never tried before – the children loved it.”

On Saturday (July 19), customers were greeted with the delicious aroma of Indian cuisine when TV chef and award winning author Manju Malhi cooked a range of dishes at the store.

Manju has created her own ‘Brit-Indi’ style food and appeared on TV shows including ITV’s Saturday Cooks and This Morning, Sky One’s Taste and BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen as well as Paul Hollywood’s Pies and Puds.

Store manager Leigh Jerrard said: “We have been delighted to welcome Manju to the store to prepare and demonstrate some incredibly tasty dishes for our customers.

“The demonstrations were incredibly popular and we hope that shoppers have been inspired by event.”

Manju said: “I have really enjoyed cooking live for the customers at the Tesco Extra store in Crawley.

“We have had people really interested in the different spices and ingredients used in the dishes.

“Usually people have the perception that Indian cooking is very time consuming and difficult and I hope that today has demonstrated how easy and quick it is to create tasty Indian food at home.”
