Galton Blackiston at Mile Cross school in Norwich

Youngsters got the chance to find out how to make some of their favourite foods from scratch when a Michelin-starred chef visited their school.

Galton Blackiston hosted a cookery class with 22 pupils at Mile Cross Primary School on Wednesday.

The owner of Morston Hall Hotel and Restaurant in north Norfolk taught the children, aged six to 11, how to make real fish fingers, herby mashed potato and fresh tomato sauce.

The visit was organised through Norse Commercial Services, the Norfolk County Council company which provides catering for the majority of the area's primary schools.

Headteacher Stuart Allen said: 'What a fantastic, once in a lifetime opportunity for the children and their parents, using fresh ingredients, to prepare and make a meal together.
