My name is Plange and I am the Nursery Chef. I am from Kumasi in Ghana and moved to England around 15 years ago. I can speak my native language of Twi, but can also speak French and English.
I have been cooking professionally for 13 years and have worked in a range of kitchens, from Nursing Care Homes to Children’s Nurseries. I really enjoy making fresh meals and snacks for the children and giving them the energy they need to thrive in the Nursery. I actively support our Eating Healthy theme by teaching the children about different foods, providing fun cooking activities at our children’s cooking counter to support their learning. My signature dish is an African dish of Spicy Roasted Chicken with Joloff Rice.
