I love interacting with the students and the volunteer parents who work at the Tuckshop. I also love the casual hours.

4. Why do you believe your canteen is such a success? What makes you stand out from the rest?
Because I’m a good cook (laughs), no we try to serve healthy food for the students that’s tasty at the same time.

I love Chicken wraps made with the Ingham Chicken Tenders, lettuce, tomato, pineapple and cheese, they taste great.

My favourite Ingham product to cook with are the Ingham Chicken Tenders because you can create so many different meals with them.

If you really enjoy cooking just get in there and give it a go.
