Matthew is a great advocate of the Hub o’clock - he attends regularly and it is his ultimate goal to make and sell his homemade lasagne in the Orangery Bistro.

Matthew has made his lasagne and eaten it with his family in the Orangery.

We regularly practice his skills in our orangery kitchen and are even completing a food hygiene certificate for Matthew. 


Over the term Matthew has made:

  • Chicken nuggets

  • Ice cream

  • Chocolate fudge cake

  • Fish cakes 

  • Corned beef pie

  • Muffins

  • Sausage rolls

As Matthew's mum does not eat gluten, we have tested a range of gluten free recipes including:

  • Sausage Rolls

  • Orange cake
