For the last 30 years, National School Meals Week (NSMW) has been raising awareness about the importance of nutritious school meals. With the education sector, amongst others, dealing with the daily challenges of the COVID pandemic, this campaign has never been more important. With the return of hot meals being staggered over the country, we stand with LACA and their Hot’ober initiative, to encourage conversations between caterers, school representatives, on site staff and parents to facilitate the return of hot lunches as soon as everyone feels it safe to do so.
We recommend ‘Essential Book of Soups’, ‘From Garden to Kitchen’, and ‘The Essential Book of British Classics’.VIEW ALL RECIPE BOOKS >
