Michael Van de Elzen’s - Thank you!

posted: Mon, November 26, 2018

The PTA were very excited about hosting Michael (aka The Foodtruck Chef) Van de Elzen’s cooking demonstration tour for his new cookbook “Good From Scratch Children’s Cookbook” last week.

Michael’s philosophy is that nothing is better than a meal where you know where the ingredients come from. He is all about creating recipes that produce dishes that are healthy, quick to prepare and deeeelicious.
Well done to George Davies for winning the amazing raffle.
A huge heartfelt thanks to the following people:

  • Christina Clark, Mel Davies, Gaye France, Janeen Hanna, Caroline Back & Celia Grant, who worked tirelessly to make this day happen and did all the baking etc for the food stall.
  • Grant from the Ngongotaha Four Square who donated all the ingredients that Michael used on the day.
  • Rachael McGarvie from The Firestation for all her amazing PR work.
  • The Monteith Family (Western Heights Pharmacy) for their kind financial contribution.
  • All the parents and children who helped on the day with setting up and packing down.
  • Rms Matai & Rata for making all the wonderful pictures, food signs & baking.
  • And all the families that bought tickets and supported our wonderful school PTA.
  • And anyone else that we may have forgotten but thank so much.
