Celebrity chef Richard Phillips, pictured above centre, put a new food technology suite on the menu for a school on Tuesday.

The Kent-based Michelin star chef, visited the Helen Allison School in Longfield Road, Meopham, to open the unit in a refurbished classroom which has been converted to four individual food technology kitchens.

Run independently by the National Autistic Society, the school caters for young people ranging from five to 19-years-old and specialises in supporting those with autism spectrum disorder and aspergers syndrome.

Mr Phillips, who has appeared on Ready Steady Cook, Too Many Cooks and the Daily Cooks Challenge, said: “This will make life better for its students once they leave to begin an independent life. It is so important.”
