On the first day of Christmas Cucina gave to me…

School catering company Cucina Restaurants are getting into the festive spirit with a new and exciting menu especially for Christmas.

Cucina will be offering pupils at its 37 contracted schools 12 chances to taste the tactically tasty, healthy seasonal meals, guaranteed to make even the biggest of Scrooges at least a little bit merry.

For 12 days after November 28th, students will find a number of nutritious, but still delicious Christmas dishes waiting for them in their school canteens. These will include Christmas baguettes jam packed with prime slices of Norfolk turkey, chipolata sausage, sage and onion stuffing and cranberry mayo, Christmas themed Wellington made with pork, stuffing and cranberries, festively wrapped up in puffed pastry. There will also be 12 days of decorative desserts including traditional favourites like mince pie and some new and improved puddings like snowball brownies.

Steve Quinn, Managing Director of Cucina, said: 

“At Cucina it is important that we make nutritious meals that the kids will actually enjoy eating and by making the dishes themed it adds extra fun to lunchtimes at school. It’s especially important to get the school pupils eating healthily around the Christmas period, because at this time of year many people indulge in foods that aren’t necessarily good for them, but at Cucina we can make sure that the food consumed at school is.”

Overall pupils will get to try 14 different delicious Christmas dishes at lunch time in Cucina’s school restaurants during the 12 days of Christmas. The final days of the school term will see traditional Christmas meals presented at the 37 schools.
