FEED Cook Book - buy it here!
Our school cook book launched 19th May.
'FEED' a cookbook freshly prepared by the school's young chef, Jess Oughten, supported by a team of plucky parents headed up by Ruth Littlejohns-Sames, has mixed together a selection of recipes that get served from Marlborough's kitchen.
The idea for the book came from changes with school food just over two years ago, which started with the government's School Food Plan and the introduction of universal free school meals, when Marlborough School decided to capitalise upon the opportunity by taking over their school kitchen from an outside catering agency.
Jess said the aim was to "surround our pupils at lunchtime with fresh, local homemade food. This will promote a long term culture, respect and knowledge of the importance of eating well".
After revolutionising the kitchen, the school drew on the support of parents and the community to help bring Jess' cooking into the home and Feed - a cookbook from a Cornish school kitchen was developed.
Head teacher, Mr Gambier commented, "It's just really nice to see the fruition of all the work that Jess has done since she joined the school a couple of years ago. This is a celebration of everything her kitchen stood for and now our children have the opportunity to share and enjoy it. It's been brilliant the way the school family has come together".
