Cookery demonstrations are a fantastic way to assist the learning process. LMC has 9 trained school cookery demonstrators who can deliver messages about the nutritional benefits of beef and lamb, food safety, food hygiene, quality assurance, provenance and cooking methods. The demonstration is delivered to suit your timetable.
If you would like a place on the reserve list, please email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For over thirty years, LMC has offered free cookery demonstrations to post primary schools across Northern Ireland. These cookery demonstrations are designed to show the versatility and convenience of beef and lamb as well as highlighting their importance within a balanced diet. LMC’s demonstrators can tailor demonstrations to meet the needs of different year groups, abilities and other requirements. The cookery demonstrations are designed to be fun and informative, with our demonstrators passing on useful nutritional information and cookery tips. At the end of the demonstration there is an opportunity for the pupils and, of course, their teacher to sample the dishes and ask questions. Each year we carry out over 375 school cookery demonstrations throughout Northern Ireland. You will be notified when booking opens for each academic year. There is high demand for this service; in order to avoid disappointment complete the electronic booking form as soon as possible after notification. All confirmed demonstrations must take place between 1 September and 31 March of the following year.

-The teacher must remain in the room and engaged in the demonstration throughout the duration.
Most importantly we hope you and your pupils enjoy the demonstration.
The demonstration was very relevant to the new spec at GCSE from food provenance point of view, girls fully understand how traceability works from farm to fork. They also gained important information on the nutritional value of meat and learned they actually do like lamb!Joanne Knox - Ballycastle High School
This facility is amazing and our pupils here at St Aidan’s thoroughly enjoy it every time. They are engaged and ask questions. They love the interaction and tasting the food. Quite a lot of them then use the LMC recipe books at home. Thank you so muchJulie Tunney St Aidans Derrylin
