A cook is hoping to rise to the occasion in the next round of a competition to find the UK’s best school chef.
Lisa Morris will be battling seven others for the regional title of London School Chef of the Year 2017 on January 10.
The cook supervisor at Dagenham’s Manor Longbridge Primary School will cook Japanese teriyaki pollock with spring onion mash and horseradish, plus mandarin and coconut crumble cake.
“I know our children love fish, it’s one of their favourite things,” said Lisa.
The “excited” cook has high hopes after being highly commended for her build-your-own rhubarb and strawberry crumble in last year’s competition.
“I am going to try that little bit harder,” she said.
Each contestant will have 90 minutes to prepare four portions of a main course and a dessert suitable for serving to 11-year-olds in school.
