CHILDREN from a county primary school cooked up a traditional Polish dish as part of a community study.

Class four pupils from Marden Primary Academy visited the Old Granary Pierogi shop in their village where they were able to sample some of the many flavours of pierogi before making their own with sweet apple and cinnamon.

A question and answer session during the visit enabled the pupils to collect information for a persuasive leaflet that they will be writing in their English work.

The pupils were very excited to visit the premises and were pleased to know that many of the ingredients were sourced locally.

Class teacher, Amanda James, said: "Learning about locally sourced food fits well with our eco-school philosophy. The visit enabled our pupils to taste and make pierogi which were originally made in Poland.”

Emilia Koziol-Wisniewski, from the Old Granary Pierogi, said: "It was an enormous pleasure to host such fantastic visitors, who enjoyed our baked pierogi and asked lots of interesting questions.

"We had a brilliant day and we hope to see them again."
