Fish and chicken with Panko Breadcrumbs

Martha Stewart also uses panko breadcrumbs for her chicken goujons for a lovely crunchy texture

I had the pleasure of cooking for some lovely children yesterday. It is one of the best feelings as a chef, to see children enjoy their food. I like to cook food they can eat with their hands, if they choose – especially if they are quite young.

Shaker salads, perfect for mixing fresh vegetables and shaking in little pots.

Organic sweet potato mash 
Sweet and tender peas

I also thought a pasta dish, with 7 hidden vegetables would do the trick too.

Dessert was pineapple and sultana mini muffins – sugar free and diary free with mango frozen smoothie or blackberry frozen smoothie if they fancied something cool and refreshing. They actually ate both so, totting up the vegetable and fruit intake meant they ate a whopping 18 different varieties and all in one meal.

Thank you to the lovely Sainbury family and Jan and Bozena for such a magical afternoon.
