On 13 November 2018, Shelley Anand (joint owner and chef) from Cumin Restaurant & Wedding Catering business visited Forest Fields Primary School, to share his expertise with our catering team.
Nottingham Catering produces Halal dishes, which are distributed to other school kitchens as an additional offer to the main menu. It is key to create tasty and authentic meals and Shelley was kind enough to come to view our processes and give advice and tips, to ensure we offer the best quality possible.
During the visit, Shelley was able to spend one-to-one time with Tracey, our Catering Supervisor, teaching her about the use of additional spices and the foundations of a good curry. On the day, Shelley cooked a Lamb Masala and Chicken Masala, which was served to the pupils and school staff, with positive feedback from all. We received comments from school staff that it tasted like it had come from a restaurant.
Shelley has offered his time again in the future and is happy to support Tracey and Nottingham Catering.
For anyone looking for a delicious, authentic North Indian and Punjabi cuisine head over to The Cumin Restaurant on Maid Marian Way.
Nottingham Catering provide over 12,000 meals a day to city schools. Halal meals are provided where requested to these schools from our central Halal kitchen. If you are interested in seeing Halal meals at your school please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
