What's Cooking in our

QUEST School Kitchen

Our Quest Kitchen Approach

Our main approach to producing the meals is to cook from fresh using raw ingredients.  We like to make lunch times fun and enjoyable for children.  We are always encouraging them to try new dishes and expand their taste for different food groups, textures and nutritional value

As a company we provide School Grid,  an award winning management system, enabling pupils to order their own lunch or choose at home with parents.  The system will enable parents to view what the child has eaten and the chance to

pay by direct debit.


The children no longer pre-order using a paper based system. To save  teacher time and get the children more involved, pupils now select their chosen meal on a whiteboard touchscreen. Vegetarian options are clearly displayed on a green button.


The children now select their name onscreen at the hotplate or are compiled on a printed list. Their meal choice is displayed to the cook, as well as there dietary needs. If a mismatch is detected the cook will advise of an alternative.
