Shrewsbury School

From sushi to corn bread...

Monday 20 November 2017

‘Theme Nights’ in KH have always proved popular with pupils and staff alike. So this term the Holroyd Howe catering team thought, why not have one every night?

Carrie Zeiler (Catering Administrator) writes:

The term began with a succulent Hog Roast served with warm giant baps and Chef’s homemade apple sauce with stuffing. 

The Sushi Bar was popular, particularly with the younger pupils, some of whom had never tried sushi before. 

We then turned our attention to more international themes such as Thai Street Food, a colourful and flavourful German Market and our personal favourite, the American Diner with giant hotdogs, burgers, fries, waffles, doughnuts and homemade extra thick milkshakes.  Our talented front of house team even made a giant Juke box out of a plate stack! 

Juicy BBQ pulled pork baps with homemade spicy slaw is always a hit, as is the funky New Orleans night with jerk-spiced chicken and homemade corn bread. 

Here in KH, one does not need to go around the world in order to taste food that is out of this world!

As always, there is lots to look forward to.  As the nights have started to draw in, our thoughts turned to warming, chunky stews with dumplings, hearty soups and meaty pot roasts. And of course now we’re heading rapidly towards our favourite time of the year - Christmas!

Our chefs always encourage feedback from the pupils and are always on the lookout for ways to inject even more fun into the food, so please do tell us if there is anything that you would like to see more of on the menu.
