Cucina logo      OUR NEW CATERERS

We are Cucina

Cucina is jam packed with real foodies. Our belief is to bring restaurant-quality food to education and business organisations across the UK.

We don’t operate canteens, food halls or cafeterias; our outlets are all proper restaurants, with everything implied by that. Each of our sites has its own trained chefs, and all Cucina meals are cooked from ‘scratch’, starting with fresh ingredients many of them local.

Each of our dishes contain at least one fruit or vegetable but none are promoted as the specifically ‘healthy option’.

Our focus is always on:

  • Great food cooked from scratch every single day
  • Innovative menus that change regularly to keep interest
  • Highly skilled teams equipped to do a great job
  • Going ‘above and beyond’ to become part of our clients daily life

Our future health and prosperity depends on ensuring that the next generation is better fed. In association with ‘The School Food Trust’, ‘Food for Life Partnership’ and other organisations, we work hard to promote higher standards of food in Education.

Give them what they want. Believe it or not, this has always been the secret to healthy eating. It’s just that before now, ‘what they like’ almost always meant low-quality, fattening and unhealthy food.

We have a simple philosophy: to serve fantastic fresh food, quickly with a smile, to satisfied customers who return every day.

Delicious lunch?
Shhhhh! It’s healthy too!

As educators we all want students to eat better, and yet their dining choices are very rarely influenced by overt health messages, or tables groaning with crunchy vegetables. The major drivers continue to be taste, cost and convenience.

That’s why Cucina’s menus are interesting, fun and different. Our approach, which we call stealthy eating has helped us more than double the uptake of school dinners. It has also enabled our partner schools to significantly reduce their catering costs.

Our food, handmade on site by skilled chefs and attractively presented, is largely sourced from fresh UK ingredients. It’s also full of nutritional goodness, but that isn’t something we like to shout about. Our customers continue to choose ‘healthy’ simply because that’s the food they like to eat. Isn’t this the way it should be, after all?

Teaching through their tastebuds

Healthy food? Absolutely. Although young customers tend to put it in other ways, like, ‘wicked’, ‘the future’, ‘gorge(ous)’, ‘cool’, ‘way better than the shops’, and ‘Mum, I want school lunches’.

The more that students like our food, the more they get to know about it. Then, with the help of chefs and kitchen staff, they start to try other options.

We KNOW that eating well is crucial to improving ability and behaviour. In helping students to eat better, Cucina aims to impart a genuine love of great food and help grow knowledge in the process.
