Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has delighted children at a school in Britain by supplying a recipe for their fundraising cookbook.

Pupils at Boundary Oak School near Portsmouth in the south of England wrote to Ramsay to request a recipe for the book they were producing, but never really expected a reply. Imagine their surprise when they received, not just a recipe from the Hell’s Kitchen star himself, but also contributions from other celebrity chefs such as Gary Rhodes, Nigella Lawson, Nick Nairn and Phil Vickery.

“It’s been an incredibly successful project,” said Jo Ekin, registrar at the school. “A parent and member of the parent’s association, Sarah Ironside, came up with the recipe book idea. It was thought a cookbook was a nice way of raising some money and something the children could really get involved with. It was then decided to contact some celebrity chefs. No one really expected to hear from them, but we were shocked when they started replying and saying yes. The children were thrilled to see their recipes alongside chefs they know from the TV. If all books sell, we’re set to raise a fantastic amount.”

A fantastic amount is an understatement: the book is set to raise around £2,500 for the school and £500 for the Rainbow Centre, a facility that helps youngsters with cerebral palsy.

The 80-page book is on sale from the school and the Rainbow Centre for £6, with £1 from each book going to the Rainbow Centre. People in Britain who wish to obtain a copy can call the school (01329) 280955. More information about the Rainbow Centre – which offers services throughout southern England – can be found here.
