There is nothing scary about healthy food

There is nothing scary about healthy food according to Teddington School’s catering team Cucina – unless of course it’s Halloween.

The catering experts decided to prepare some spooky surprises for students and staff at Teddington School as a Halloween treat.

When customers reached the food counters on Monday 31st October they were offered the chance to try some truly gruesome cauldron concoctions, such as BBQ rib cages with fried maggots rice, boiled and burnt corn on the cob, roasted pumpkin salad with candied pumpkin seeds and even witches potato fingers. They also got the chance to try some frightful but delicious desserts like chocolate brownie headstones and scary spider web waffles with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Serving up the Halloween specials were a gang of other worldly characters including vampires and corpse brides. There was even a caged gorilla who took centre stage in the canteen, which had been transformed into a spooky grave yard, where leftover cardboard boxes had been recycled into headstones.

Steve Quinn, managing Director of Cucina said: “It’s important to us to make healthy food fun and it’s even better when it’s themed. Both our customer and chefs had great fun with the Halloween menu introduced as a special treat for the day”.

Head Chef, Andy Shrek, from Teddington School in Middlesex commented: “We had a very successful day which was enjoyed as much by the staff as it was by the students! All the catering staff had great fun dressing up and decorating the canteen”.

Cucina prepared Halloween treats at all of its 37 school restaurants up and down the country.
