9:00am Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
TV chef James Martin made a day-long visit to Dixon’s Academy in Allerton and spent his time chatting with pupils mixed with a quick bit of cookery.
“He was invited to the opening of the new school building because he came when we first changed into an academy,” said school spokesman Karen Laughlin.
“James was with the children all day and took part in classes including cooking.
“A lot of the work was centred around food and cookery.
“Pupils quizzed him on his life and how he became a chef and he told them all about how a teacher had inspired him to do what he wanted,” she said.
