NAPA Challenge 2018!

We kick-started this year’s NAPA Challenge with a trip to Black Firs Primary School for a performance of African songs by pupils followed by a food tasting with the children. The theme of the challenge was ‘A Food Journey around the Commonwealth’, so we followed our exploration of African culture and cuisine with a trip to Bon Pan Asia Restaurant in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. We tasted foods from an array of Asian countries and for some residents, it was their first time trying these flavours. One resident, Jean White, said it was the best day she’d had while living at Astbury Mere!
