One hundred and 50 pupils in Years 3 and 4 at the Richmond School have been taking part in a project called World Kitchen.

Mario Cantelmi, the owner of Mario’s Italian restaurant in Skegness, pizza chef Neil Tompsett and chef Cono Robertazzi have been teaching the children how to make authentic Italian pizza.

Joanne Hazard, of the Richmond School, said: “We believe in a wide curriculum and hope this initiative teaches pupils about the benefits of healthy eating, the importance of freshness of products and a love of cooking for their future.

“The teachers also held a blind food tasting event, with foods from around the world which enabled the pupils to experience tastes from around the world.

“Maybe the initiative will create some chefs of the future!”
