Home Economics Scientific & Social


The Home Economics Department was delighted with the interest and participation of Rudiments students in the first ever ‘Tough Cookies’ cookery club at Belvedere College. It consisted of two courses both for five weeks which ran from October to February mid-term. When surveyed the students felt they had all learned something new and added to their repertoire of culinary skills. By far Chicken Curry and Vegetable Soup were the favoured dishes. Some students preferred the chocolate muffins but all students that responded agreed that eating the dishes was the best part! The following is a selection of student testimonials:
