Parents cooking up a treat on a budget

A GROUP of Morpeth parents and grandparents were given top tips on how to make mouth-watering meals on a budget.

Supermarket chain Morrisons has re-launched its Value range as M Savers and is sending chefs around the country to show people how the ingredients can be used to cook simple and healthy dinners.

One of the classes was at Chantry Middle School and Technology College and Mike Harrison went through recipe cards for a range of dishes with more than 30 adults.

These included pea and bacon soup, vegetable curry, pasta bake, sweet and sour turkey and beef stir fry.

Chantry cookery teacher Helen Moran said: “The parents and grandparents thought it was great and wished it could be the first of many. Chef Mike was fabulous with them and put them very much at ease.”

Morrisons Media Relations Officer Anna Claydon, who attended the event, said: “Morrisons has a long tradition of community involvement and it was great to see so many parents and grandparents attend the Cook-Along at Chantry Middle School and Technology College.

“We were delighted to meet some of our Morpeth customers and give them the opportunity to try their hand at cooking up some easy and affordable recipes using the M Savers ingredients.”
