Lunch times at Nest in the Woods Grappenhall

We are very pleased to announce from January 2018 Jules Kitchen will be providing the children with home cooked hot meal at Grappenhall Nest in the Woods. The cost will be £3 for the main meal which will be delivered to us in the woods in a thermos flask for each child, this will enable us to remain with the flexible lunch time as the children can eat when they are hungry and the food will remain hot.

(Parents you will still need to provide a water bottle and a pudding if you wish, we will still provide each child with a morning and afternoon snack. Jules Kitchen is a registered catering business who has written records of all the suppliers that provide the food or any food ingredients, she can cater for individual dietary needs and will provide a full list of ingredients on request.)

Jules Kitchen –

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Julie Illidge and I am a Mother of 3 boys – Luke aged 9 and Rhys & Ewan (twins) aged 7. I am married to Martin which also makes me a step mum to Jack 18, Tess 17 & Ruby 13. We have lived in Grappenhall for the last 10 years and my boys attend St Wilfrids School.

I attended Bridgewater High School in Stockton Heath following which I trained as a chef at Hartford College. I went on to work at a few local restaurants around the south Warrington area, and then moved into food sales with sales becoming my career until I had my first child.

I was lucky enough to be a ‘stay at home Mum’ until the twins went to school and have subsequently been working in the kitchen at St Wilfrids School which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I have now however taken the decision to leave the school at the end of this year to embark on my own business venture.

Food has always been something I have been very passionate about and I now have the great opportunity of cooking the meals for your Children at Nest in the Woods. I have fed my children a very stable diet of fresh produce over the years which they have enjoyed and hope your children enjoy it too.

I look forward to getting to know you all in the future.
