A head chef went back to school to share some cookery tips with pupils for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day.

As part of the campaign to put practical food education on the curriculum, Luke Bailey, of The Crown, in Woodbridge, returned to Farlingaye High to make ‘squash it’ sandwiches with year seven pupils using fresh, local, seasonal produce.

Food technology teacher, Sadie Ewers said: “Luke has been a wonderful inspiration to students. A previous student himself, he has visited for a demonstration and tasting session with GCSE students and also allowed year 11 students into his kitchen for some hands on experience.

“It’s fantastic to have someone so enthusiastic giving up their time to inspire our students and Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution is a fantastic way to continue this.”
