Catering and Cucina


Who Are We?

Unlike most caterer’s, Cucina take a hands-on approach to ensure there is something on the menu for everyone during the whole school day.

As educators we all want students to eat better, and yet dining choices are very rarely influenced by overt health messages, or tables groaning with crunchy vegetables. Our Executive Chefs not only run a three-week menu cycle to ensure no day is ever the same, but also run cooking classes, foodie groups, where students can have their say, and various competitions throughout the year, to engage and interest students, staff and even parents! Cucina is jam-packed with real foodies. Our belief is to bring restaurant-quality food into education.

We don’t operate canteens, food halls or cafeterias; our outlets are all proper restaurants, with everything implied by that. Each of our sites has its own trained chef and all Cucina meals are cooked from ‘scratch’ starting with fresh ingredients…many of which are locally sourced.
