Lisa Morris, a cook at Manor Longbridge Primary School, visited Mayfair restaurant The Westbury on November 15, as part of National School Meals Week’s Host a School Chef event.

The scheme lets school cooks spend a day in the world of fine dining, alongside some famous names in the culinary world.

“I personally picked up several different recipes that I am going to recreate in the near future,” Lisa said.

“It was a wonderful and educational experience, and one I will not forget in a hurry.”

Barking and Dagenham Catering Services chose Lisa to work with Michelin-starred chef Alyn Williams at his Mayfair restaurant.

Former Barking resident Alyn will also visit the Scholars Way, Dagenham school early next year to cook for pupils and speak about his life as a chef.
