Cookery Demos

Cookery demonstrations are a fantastic way to assist the learning process. LMC has 8 trained school cookery demonstrators who can deliver messages about the farm to fork journey of Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assured (NIFQA) beef and lamb. The demonstrations also cover messaging on the nutritional importance of NIFQA beef and lamb, food safety, quality assurance and where our food comes from.


School Cookery Demonstrations for NI Primary Schools

The Livestock and Meat Commission for Northern Ireland are delighted to confirm the expansion of its educations programme and offer 100 free cookery demonstrations to primary schools across Northern Ireland. These cookery demonstrations will be available for Key Stage 2 classes and are structured to cover key drivers within the curriculum such as Health and Wellbeing and Care for the Environment. Our expert team of demonstrators will also educate pupils on the farm to fork journey of Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assured Beef and Lamb and explain how our farmers are working hard everyday to produce beef and lamb to the world leading standards that the NIFQAS demands. Demonstrations will take place within the classroom and will last approximately 40 minutes. The demonstrator will cook one recipe containing NIFQA beef or lamb which pupils will get the opportunity to taste at the end of the demonstration. Demonstrations will be allocated on a first come first serve basis, in order to avoid disappointment complete the electronic booking form below as soon as possible.

Parents commented on how much their child knew about where their food came from and parents themselves learned something. I feel this is something that should be carried out in all Primary Schools because the knowledge and information they received has benefitted them so much already."
