Philippa Dadswell

Philippa joined Educaterers after an early career in industrial and retail catering, including a stint in Germany. After working across the business in a number of kitchen management roles, Philippa was instrumental in developing the trainer role into what it is today.

My favourite school dinner:

A classic roast beef dinner with Yorkshire pudding and crispy roast potatoes."

My favourite school dinner:

"Another traditional roast dinner followed by a sweet treat with peppermint custard."
