In conjunction with Norse Catering “National School Meals Week”, school cook, Carole Read, from Millfield Primary School, North Walsham recently spent a day in the kitchens at The Assembly House, working as an assistant alongside Richard and Mark Mitson, pastry chef.

School cooks were placed in various fine dining establishments where they helped cook and prepare food alongside chefs. The aim of the initiative was to help change perceptions of school meals in Norfolk and demonstrate how far school catering has come in recent years.
