The food writer demonstrates a simple version of a classic kedgeree, as well as breakfast drop scones, a chicken, avocado and bacon salad, and easy beefburgers. She also takes inspiration from a visit to a groundbreaking primary school in south London that has built a secret garden where staff teach their students how to grow vegetables and look after a brood of chickens, and Mary joins two enthusiastic and skilful Year 5 pupils in the teaching kitchen to make something deliciously fresh for their school lunch.
