Here's a little about us and our service...
Who remembers eating their school meals with fondness? We do!
In our opinion all children deserve great tasting, nutritious and healthy food. Whether that’s whilst they are at nursery, pre-school or at primary school, a nutritious lunch will keep them going throughout the rest of their day. At Red Hen Cookery our original cookery school teaching principles of locally sourced, cooked from scratch and made with care carry through to our educational catering.
We are incredibly passionate about the food we cook for school children. Our belief is that it’s so important for children to develop good eating habits from an early age, these will encourage them to continue to eat a balanced and nutritious diet into adulthood.
Easy, tasty & healthy
We cook meals that combine, fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and pulses. We use only healthy cooking methods, such as baking, braising, steaming and boiling to prepare our nutritious dishes.
We all have our favourite meals and children are no different so you’ll find that we often tweak the menu following feedback from children, parents or our schools. If children are enjoying particular meals then we’ll try our best to keep these on our menus, instead we’ll look at changing those meals that are perhaps not as popular, whilst still giving the children plenty of variety.
Balanced nutritious dishes
All of our main meals and desserts are cooked from scratch in our kitchens in St Johns Worcester, using fresh ingredients sourced from local suppliers and delivered to schools or nurseries every day. We use local suppliers where ever we can and are proud to work with Worcester Produce for our fruits and vegetables and Sessions the Butchers for our meats and cheeses.
