On Monday 23 May, the Pre-Primary and Year 1 Masterchef class cooked a ‘miniature pizza’ recipe from ‘Matt’s Favourite Recipes,’ a cookbook written by Matthew Carulli, a former Christ Church student.

As the boys cooked the pizzas they illustrated each stage of the process so they could recreate the recipe at home with their families. It was a particular highlight knowing that they were cooking from a recipe book created by a Christ Church old boy.

Matthew Carulli joined the Christ Church community when he was in Year 5. Sadly, Matthew passed away from leukaemia in 2014. In 2015, the Matthew Carulli Memorial Scholarship was established at Christ Church in memory of Matt.

Matthew documented all his favourite recipes as cooking was one of his passions. Late last year Matt’s parents, Shelley and Steve compiled the recipes, unedited, into a book. Both Shelley and Steve joined the boys as they prepared the pizzas. They said that Matt loved cooking and would want to share his creations.
