Hello

Hello Everyone.


Thank-you to those of you who have left comments since my last post.
I am OK thanks & i have not been told not to carry on with the blog.


I meant to make a post over a week ago but have been a bit busy with different things.
the reason why i have not put any new pictures of the food which i serve at the Private school i work at is because i have shown all four weeks of our menu. so the post would only be the same again.
I am currently compiling my new Menu's for the new term in September this year and so i will show you all with new Photo's etc.


In the mean time i do some work at Emirates Stadium & Wembley. if i get a chance i will post some Photos of the food we prepare there but please remember this will not be a comparison to school foods.


Lastly i would like to add that when i started this Blog, it was because of the Food that Veg (Martha) was showing on her school food Blog. I felt it was appalling and so thought i would post my own pictures on my blog. Some people have said how can i compare mine which is a private school to that of a state school when the food budget is entirely different. 
My budget is about 40p more than most state schools but i serve 3 courses as opposed to 2. 
i am only trying to show what can be achieved with a little thought and imagination. Yes i am a trained Chef so i have an advantage but there is plenty of information and recipes which can be adapted to school lunches. I work for a company which provides meals in state schools & Private schools and the principle is the same to all the schools. Fresh & Healthy food for all children. I dont feel that it is the cooks at Martha's school (or other schools) fault, they just need to be given more help & Guidance from their managers. Communication is the key. we have Meetings with the Children & the Parents to find out what they would like to eat (within reason) and from there we compile our Menu's giving a mixed balance of food which they like and what the parents would like them to eat. This is not always achievable but we do our best. 


WE CANT PLEASE EVERYBODY ALL THE TIME
BUT 
WE AIM TO PLEASE MOST OF THEM MOST OF THE TIME

  3. Thank you very much for this post. I'm glad you referred to many people's complaint/argument/confusion. I was starting to worry something had happen. Glad to know everything is okay. Continue with the blog. I love the new format you had posted. Please, if you're doing extra work somewhere else, post. Prove to the world how fresh and healthy meals are attainable in school and out! Keep on blogging! :)

    And I agree with Neesargon, I don't always comment, but daily check your blog. Looking forward to new posts!

    Also I agree with Ashley Woo, it'll be interesting how and what you cook at home. It would be great for the parents back at home with their kids this summer vacation can get together and prepare a meal as a family.
