Al Brown visits Garden to Table!
Thursday, June 23, 2016 | Linda Taylor
Celebrity Chef Al Brown had a wonderful time when he visited Garden to Table at Owairaka District School. We're not sure what was more exciting for the year 5 & 6 students - a visit from Al, or the Seven Sharp cameras! Have a look at Al's visit here, as he enjoys pumpkin ravioli made with home-made pasta, with a sorrel butter. Thanks for allowing us to visit, Owairaka District School!
