The Lead Association for CAtering in Education reports that the world famous Ritz London has agreed to take part in this year’s LACA National School Meals Week (NSMW), 13th-17th November, by offering a placement on the ‘Host a School Chef’ programme. Now in its fourth year the popular scheme offers school chefs the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in the catering industry, in some of the most celebrated restaurants in the country.
There are none more celebrated though than The Ritz London with the iconic Michelin starred Ritz Restaurant, widely considered to be one of the most beautiful dining rooms in the world. In addition to holding a Michelin star, in 2002 The Ritz London became the first and only hotel to be awarded a Royal Warrant by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales for Catering and Banqueting Services. Consequently, for a member of the education catering industry to be invited into the kitchens for the day is exciting news.
John Williams MBE, Executive Chef of the Ritz London, said: –
“We are delighted to support LACA National School Meals Week and believe it is a great initiative. School chefs are often the unsung heroes of the catering industry, yet do a vital job in ensuring that millions of children every day are eating a heathy, nourishing meal. I am a firm believer in sharing knowledge and improving skills, which ultimately benefit all. My team and I are greatly looking forward to a school chef joining us during National School Meals Week and we can assure them of a warm welcome and a unique culinary”
