My School Cook

Our catering teams are highly skilled and experienced at delivering tasty nutritious meals each day in schools across the City; to share their vast knowledge we have asked our teams to reveal their favourite school meals recipes. We’ve also asked our teams to send in their top tips and hints to make cooking tasty meals at home easier for us all!

Here are just a few of the recipes that we have received so far from our catering teams. We have adapted them so that they can be made for a family of four, just click on the recipe title and it will open up as a document ready for you to print.

This month’s top tip has been submitted by Unit Manager Andrea Bryne:

‘You can sneak extra vegetables into a pasta sauce by blending carrots, peppers, mushrooms and onions with the sauce, it adds to the flavour and contributes to your child’s five a day without them even knowing!”
