Richard Hughes launches Chefs Adopt a School Programme in Norfolk

Schools in Norfolk are encouraging pupils to take a career in hospitality through the Chefs Adopt a School Programme.

The scheme, backed by Prince Charles and the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, matches chefs with schools offering workshops to give young people the knowledge and skills and to cook.

The children learn about not only food and cookery but also food provenance and growing, healthy eating, nutrition and hygiene.

Richard Hughes, chef-patron at the Assembly House in Norwich will be working with four schools in Norfolk over the next year, sharing his passion for food.

During his first week, Hughes worked with 100 children in year two at Browick Primary School in Wymondham, Norfolk - a visit organised by Jon Reed of people engagement business; Purple Cubed.

He said: "Getting children excited about food and hospitality is a real privilege for me. I love helping enthuse future generations to have fun with food and adopt healthier lifestyles. We may even have found a few budding chefs of the future in Norfolk!"

Reed added: "As a parent I always thought my daughter's school had the potential to do much more with food so coming across the Chefs Adopt a School Programme at a recent event hosted by The Caterer and chatting to Richard one day got me thinking. Now the school has an adopted chef for a year, I'm hopeful the children will spend more time cooking and go home and tell their parents how much fun can be had being a chef."

Since its inception in 1990, the Adopt a School Trust has inspired an estimated 500,000 children.
