Allegra McEvedy



Founder of the Leon healthy fast-food-chain and author of Economy Gastronomy; Allegra McEvedy MBE, introduces a wary group of primary school children to the joys of bran.

Having trained dozens of young cooks in restaurants over the years, Allegra and teacher Sally Keck make a batch of banana muffins with the schools cookery club.

The muffins contain bran, a healthy ingredient that might prove unappetising to children, but instead Allegra gets the class cracking eggs, mashing bananas, and creaming butter and sugar.

The bran is just another ingredient, and class are swept along with Allegra's friendly, attentive teaching and her energetic pace.

Finally, Allegra gives her closing thoughts on getting children to eat healthy food at a young age.
