TOO many cooks certainly didn’t spoil the broth when schoolchildren whipped up some tasty treats.

Youngsters from Dennington Primary, near Framlingham, downed their pens and donned their aprons for the culinary challenge.

With the help of parents, teachers and governors, pupils took part in the Let’s Get Cooking “Big Cookathon”, which aimed to get as many people as possible preparing and creating the same meal from scratch on the same day.

Around 300 schools from across the country were tasked with the creating a healthy Indian takeaway of chicken or vegetable korma, lamb and vegetable samosas and naan bread.

Julie Beecroft, teaching assistant at Dennington, said: “We all really enjoyed it. From reception right through to those in Year 6, everyone was involved.

“The children peeled and chopped the vegetables as well as mixing and blending the ingredients. They made everything from scratch.

“We also looked at all the different seasonings that are used in Indian cooking such as cumin and root ginger.”
