Mid Year Dinner May 2016

It may have been cold outside, but inside Youth Space, it was warm and buzzing as 10 teenagers worked together to prepare for the meal. They made the creamy parsnip soup, chopped herbs, mixed lentils, stuffed the butternut pumpkins, set the long tables, decorated the room, made and layered the chia seed and cherry desserts…

It’s almost time to put the pumpkins in the oven!

In spite of a power cut shorting out one of the ovens, the meal was ready in time for the guests.

The stuffed butternut pumpkins were a hit!

It needed a steady hand to decorate the cauliflower and parsnip soup, drizzle olive oil on top, sprinkle with roasted walnuts, and chopped chives. Then the youth served at the tables with smiles on their faces.
