We are delighted to share some wonderful news with you…We have been awarded a 𝐆𝐨𝐥𝐝 𝐓𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐖𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐀𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝 for our Smokey Sausage and Bean Cassoulet and Sunshine Rice! Bridport Kitchen Manager, and BBC Chef of the Year 2019 finalist, Ashley Painter devised the recipe which will be featured on our school menu next term.
As a Dad as well as a school meals chef, Ashley understands
the importance of making food appealing to children. He is also committed to children understanding where their food has come from and expanding their culinary horizons. His menu combines a farm to fork story with locally sourced ingredients that create a delicious one-pot meal incorporating a 5-a-day rainbow of vegetables.
“I am very proud that we have been awarded a Gold Taste of the West award. We know that children love sausages and beans and I was keen to transform these familiar and favourite flavours to encourage children to fall in love with vegetables and think about local produce. We are lucky to live in a fantastic food producing area and we must support our local businesses in these challenging times.”
