Celebrity chef Raymond Blanc visited St Mary's CE School on Wednesday, 29th January to perform a cooking demonstration and to encourage his young audience to value simple food cooked with fresh ingredients. The 10 lucky pupils who were chosen to join him in the school's new Eco Lodge then had a go at creating their own 'Mice in Mayonnaise' dish, following Monsieur Blanc's careful instructions.
Raymond was accompanied by Olivier Blanc (Raymond's son) and Charlotte Salt, the beautiful and talented actress many will know from her former role as Dr Sam Nicholls in 'Casualty' on BBC TV.
Charlotte and Olivier have developed an impressive new app for Apple and Android devices, called 'Henri le Worm'. The app, featuring recipes from Raymond Blanc and the voice of actor Simon Pegg, encourages children to discover more about food, ingredients and nature with a combination of games, facts and music.
Following the practical cookery workshop, Raymond, Olivier and Charlotte joined all the rest of Haddenham St Mary's pupils and staff in the school hall, where a song was sung in their guests' honour.
