Congratulations to our Year 2G class for winning the Grand Champion ribbon and trophy for their goat’s milk ricotta in the cheese section at the Maleny Show. The judges were bowled over when they discovered that the Champion Cheese was made by such young competitors! 2G also won 1st place for their Olive and Orange Tapenade.

1st place awards were also awarded to 2W (Roast Beetroot Hummus), 1W (Traditional Hummus) and our Preppies (Raw Energy Sticky Date Slice.)

1G received a 2nd place for their delicious chocolate sauce and 1W obtained a 3rd for their salted butter. We are so proud of the classes and their achievements.

Many children asked for the winning slice recipe so here it is:
