We're delighted to be staging such top-class entertainers as Wild Willy Barrett and his French Connection. This concert will be a wonderful taster of what we have in store for our visitors on 9 July, when Wild Willy will be joined by a host of amazing artists, including BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners Nancy Kerr and James Fagan. We're very excited to be hosting this concert and we are expecting a full house. Full information about the festival itself is available on our website
Having worked with Mary and John for more than ten years, I am delighted to be able to add French to the Irish/English mix.

The experience on the day was one which I will never forget

A wonderfully versatile idea for chefs and cooks everywhere. Authentic and pure flavours from just a few drops
These drops present us with a wonderfully simple and flexible way to blend spices and create flavours
Healing occurs when we remember, not when we try and forget.
We are delighted to have been able to help TRACKS which does such a wonderful job providing a caring and supportive environment for children with autism.
This is a personal challenge and The Isabel Hospice is a wonderful charity which supports families and individuals throughout North and East Hertfordshire
We are essentially going back to our roots, providing food which puts the customer first, but doing it in a High Street location.
The BlueTraker LRIT terminal with its “Arctic” option installed provides The Arctic Sunrise with round the clock and round the globe tracking and monitoring for safety and security in this difficult environment.
Much of my recent work with the universities has been about developing metrics to measure this adaptability score
we're now producing school food of a range and quality never seen before.
We will not compromise our high food standards
trust instead, to the ability of young people to recognise and respond to good food when they see it.
We are very careful in the contracts that we target. Both of these schools share our high aspirations and we're very much looking forward to working with them in educational partnership
As with all our previous new contracts, we will be working hard to bring about a dramatic rise in uptake of school meals Hertsmere Upper and Lower Schools.
We achieve benchmark standards of excellence by staying small and being highly selective in our pitching
Young Levi has a natural ability and he works as hard as any chef I have worked with
Besides being a bit scrummy there's a lot of it. We didn’t have any bowls big enough to mix it in, so we had to buy 2 giant plastic bins!”
We believe school students deserve to eat the very best food. That's how they learn about good nutrition and good eating. Ash has brought his genius for flavour combinations to these dishes and the results are just sensational. That's what the kids and the teachers are telling us too.
I really enjoyed doing this, it was different from anything I have done before. Spread over a lot of separate units, it has to work everywhere. The Cucina kitchens are good and they are all highly trained chefs, which makes it a lot easier
Cucina are a brilliant catering company providing us with a first rate service and they are involved in the day-to-day life of the school.
The competition is a huge motivator for our staff and we love to reward top performers in this way.
It is absolutely fantastic that the management of Cucina have sent them for a day out while the managing director is behind the counter, serving the food.
Phil Howard is an absolute industry icon, having held 2 Michelin stars for the past 14 years - an amazing achievement, making him a legend for most chefs. Phil was so impressed by our food that he is returning to see us soon, to discuss ways that he and our chefs can work together
It's certainly accurate to call our business strategy 'high risk', but we continue to make it work well
How many other school food companies could mass cater a meal of this standard?
They are a credit to The Harefield Academy and to the Borough of Hillingdon
The mashed potato is powder mixed with water and the gravy is made from a packet
I am delighted, for the sake of the health of future generations, to have been given the opportunity to contribute to this important debate.
A pity that more companies are not doing it like this. Cucina really are at the forefront of school food.
I'm pleased that we are growing at just the right rate
Cucina is very focused in the contracts it targets, and we're looking forward to our partnerships with these 2 new schools
Very professional, well thought-through concepts by Cucina. I would be interested in getting more involved.
A fantastic company like Cucina using the inspiration and leadership of Ash Mair to engage young people and get them talking about food - a real win/win.
We must give young people the means to be powerful agents for change
We have exercised our credit card and bought loads of great prizes for our sporting celebrations.
We have exercised our credit card to buy a brilliant star prize for each restaurant –a Sony PS Vita and games – or a Nintendo 3DS
The schedule pays for itself in operational time saved and in preventing staff exceed their holidays entitlement.
Simple, easy-to-use reports which help us to analyse holiday and sick leave by employee. We couldn't run our business without it.
I would think that around 90% of maintained schools are in breach of the nutritional guidelines. They need much tighter policing
We're delighted to keep our record intact. We're always looking to develop new, exciting approaches to the way we offer delicious, nutritious food to our young customers
