Cookery session for the senses

Making apple scones

A cookery skills session for adults with learning disabilities held at our Alan Shearer Activity Centre certainly made the most of the five senses.

Starting with a trip into the picturesque grounds to gather fragrant apples from the trees, there was much giggling to be heard as the harvest was collected.

After time to admire the sights and sounds of autumn it was back to the warmth of the Centre where the apples were prepared and carefully added to cinnamon, sugar, flour, milk and butter to create the most mouth-watering scones.

“The scones turned out to be absolutely delicious,” said recreation assistant, Heather.

So, it appears the sense possibly receiving the most stimulation was taste!
