Cooking at Rutherford

For the last three Wednesdays we have been cooking at Rutherford we made mash potato, potato bake and Gnocchi. My favourite one was Gnocchi because of the potato. I learnt how to boil the potato. It was fun because I got to cook for my very first time with my partner with out an adult. It was difficult because I have never worked around a oven or a stove.
