Chef and author Fergus Henderson served up pigs` tails and bone marrow for a group of school children in Hertfordshire yesterday.
Henderson, who is Head Chef and co-founder of St John Restaurant, was asked by the government funded E2BN to demonstrate his cooking skills at St Luke`s School in Redbourn to help promote children`s website Cookit!
Sous Chef Lee Tiernan helped Henderson cook and serve up dishes of pigs` tails and veal bone marrow to show students how to cook more diverse ingredients. The recipes have since been loaded up on the Cookit! website.
The chef and author of Nose to Tail Eating: A Kind of British Cooking said: "The students were very open-minded and it is great to see they have embraced stranger things”
Cookit! aims to help pupils and teachers to share recipes, including ideas for healthy eating. The website is suitable for all Key Stages 1 to 4, with recipes ranging in difficulty from easy to advanced, so pupils of all ages can participate.
