Talking about school dinner trends in Derbyshire on BBC Radio Derby
This morning I was invited to be on Aleena Naylor’s show on Radio Derby on the back of the news that Derbyshire is bucking the trend with an increased uptake in school dinners. I went on the show to talk about my experience of school dinners (as both an adult and child) and children’s attitudes towards food. You can hear the interview here between 1:11:00 and 1:23:00.
On the subject of school dinners this weekend Becky Thorn, the author of School Dinners, kindly sent me the recipe for Cornflake Tart and Pink Custard which combined to make one of my favourite food memories from school. My school dinner memories mostly surround the sweet dishes, but I can remember the lovely meatbals they used to serve in Infants, the spaghetti bologaise (fondly called worms in mud) and the time in Infants when they tried to make their own crisps. Not good!
What are your school dinner memories?
