STUDENTS at Prince Henry’s High School were served up a real treat when a TV chef made a guest appearance at their Cultural Day.

Felice Tocchini took time out from running his family-run, award-winning restaurant ‘Fusion Brasserie’ in Stoulton, near Worcester, to bring a tantalising taste of Italy into the classroom on Monday (September 26).

The award-winning chef is no stranger to the classroom because, as well as teaching at Eckington Manor Cookery School, he also teaches at the acclaimed ‘Novelli Academy’ for celebrity chef Jean Christophe Novelli. He has also appeared on TV shows such as ‘The One Show,’ ‘Countryfile,’ and ‘The Gadget Show.’

Prince Henry’s has just been re-accredited with the British Council’s prestigious International School Award 2016 – 2019 for the third time running.

His visit was part of Year 9’s Cultural Day, which is one way the school shows its commitment to a rich and creative range of international work.

Ellen Bloom, the school’s International School Award Co-ordinator, said: “It was a fabulous opportunity for our Year 9 students to enjoy a special timetable of cultural enrichment and diversity.”
