Mesdames et messieurs ... celebrity chef, Raymond Blanc will be visiting the Eco Lodge at St Mary's CE School on Wednesday, 29th January to work with a number of children and perform a cooking demonstration.
Raymond and Olivier Blanc (Raymond's son) will be promoting their cooking app for children 'Henri le worm'. (Please see editor's note, below">
The app, featuring recipes from Raymond Blanc and the voice of actor Simon Pegg, has been released for the iPad.
Henri Le Worm: The Missing Cookbook encourages children to discover more about food, ingredients and nature with a combination of games, facts and music.
The app was created by Blanc's son, Olivier, and Casualty actress Charlotte Salt. It is available for the iPad for £2.99.
On Wednesday, Raymond will work with ten pupils of Haddenham St Mary's School (their names will be pulled from a hat, or maybe a beret!) to create a dish.
Raymond and Olivier will be greeted by special song, which the whole school will perform. It is going to be 'tres magnifique'!
