Antony Worrall Thompson supports cooking in schools

As publishers of Get Cooking in the Classroom, a practical guide written to help school implement The School Food Plan, we were delighted to read that top TV chef, Antony Worrall Thompson is a strong supporter of the plan.  He says, “We’ve been crying out for this and I’ve often got on my soapbox about the woeful lack of cookery classes in school.”

Get Cooking in the Classroom helps teachers to meet the criteria of the September 2014 National Curriculum for all primary school children to learn cookery and about healthy eating. It provides a step-by-step approach, developing skills in food handling and understanding of the part food plays in the world around us.

Each of the 15 recipes is made as an individual mixture so children make and see their own achievements. The results are designed to go home with the child to share and demonstrate their new skills to siblings, parents, relations and friends.

The teacherʼs notes also offer suggestions of both how to increase the skill demand of the recipe and how to make it easier, meaning that you can use the recipes through the primary school.
