Woodbridge students show entrepreneurial spark with new cookbook

Pupils from the Young Enterprise Team at Woodbridge School have capitalised on the ‘local food’ trend and produced a stunning cookery book of local recipes, named East Coast Eats, which is now for sale.

The beautifully produced book features recipes from thriving food businesses including Stokes Sauces, Munchy Seeds and Purely Pesto, as well as popular cafes such as Honey + Harvey based in Woodbridge. Even much loved local celebrity cook Delia Smith has shared a recipe.

The Young Enterprise Programme involves pupils autonomously setting up and running a business for the academic year during Year 12. The company will enter the Young Enterprise competition and compete with over 35,000 students nationally. Woodbridge School pupils have been very successful in recent years, making it through to the regional and national final.

Callum Sycamore, Managing Director for the Young Enterprise team at Woodbridge School, explains: “We loved the idea of a business which incorporated the strength of our local area and that by choosing a product which represented the region; we would have an increased passion for it, and greater success with it.”

Neil Tetley, Headmaster at Woodbridge School said: “Congratulations to the Young Enterprise team for coming up with such an excellent idea and seeing it through to a professional outcome. Young Enterprise is such a valuable educational process for young people.”

Copies of East Coast Eats are available to purchase from The Woodbridge Emporium and Browsers Bookshop in Woodbridge and cost £14.99 each.
