Spiders and burgers were on the menu at Alexandra's Central Stories Museum and Art Gallery yesterday as children took part in the Mastercook school holiday programme.

Programme co-ordinator and museum project manager Rachel Checketts said the children had to design, plan, shop for, prepare, cook and serve a main and dessert in MasterChef style.

The girls said their top tip for making spiders was to put the ice cream in first. The boys enjoyed shopping for ingredients and making mince for their burger patties at butchery The Fridge.

While they were not keen to give away too many of their secret ingredients, they said herbs, spices and sauce all went into their patties.
