Chef Nicole Pissani left a luxury restaurant and dedicated herself to bringing quality food to schools and their students.
The idea came to her after seeing an announcement from London Elementary School that she wanted a cook.
At school, Nicole began cooking for more than 500 children and rediscovering the way to prepare food. His cooks school project was born to improve school lunch and teach students about nutrition.
The chef spent his childhood watching his family manage restaurants
Nicole grew up on the island of Malta in the Mediterranean and his family grew up looking after restaurants.
He worked at the famous London restaurant Nobby. There, Nicole cooked exquisite dishes of Asian culture, managed a group of 15 people, and spent almost 16 hours a day on her feet.
“But the more I stayed in restaurants, the less I had the feeling that I was connecting with people,” he said.
After being in the restaurant for two years, he decided to pursue new challenges.
In 2018, Nicole created the Chefs program in schools to improve school lunch and teach students about nutrition.
The initiative currently has 120 trained chefs and has been reactivated in London. In addition to keeping students in touch with food through vegetable gardens and cooking classes.
“We need to provide good food for children across the UK, which will benefit them, us and ultimately society,” he concluded.
