Clegg’s lunch date in north London

The Deputy Prime Minster led celebrations last week to highlight how far school meals have come since the days of lumpy banana custard.

As part of National School Meals Week (November 3-7), celebrity chefs joined school cooks to promote the great school lunch.

Nick Clegg and a groups of pupils visited restaurant Brasserie Blanc in Oxford to get some cooking tips from chef Raymond Blanc, before Mr Clegg headed to Weston Park Primary School in north London to cook up a storm with TV chef Lorraine Pascale.

The pair spoke to pupils and served them lunch before Ms Pascale showed the pupils how to make bread.

“This week is about not only encouraging children to really understand and enjoy the food they eat but to celebrate all the school chefs and catering staff,” Mr Clegg said.
