We are creating a cookbook to commemorate our school chef, Michael Batoux, who tragically died last summer.

The cookbook will be filled with a variety of Michael’s popular vegetarian, vegan, meat and fish recipes, accompanied by beautiful photos of his international cuisine.

As well as celebrating Michael’s extraordinary passion for food and inspirational work at Highgate Primary School, any profits from the book will go towards funding cookery classes at school.


We need your help…
In order to complete this exciting community project, we need to raise £4000 by Monday 31st May to fund the creation of the cookbook.

Individual Donations
Donations of any amount are hugely appreciated. Any donations above £10 will be listed in a private donors’ section of the book.

Corporate Donations
Corporate donations of £100 or above will be acknowledged in the corporate donations’ section of the book, as well as on the school website.
If you own a business, or know anyone who may be interested, please email michaelbcookbook@gmail.com for more information.

Both individual and corporate donations can be made via our secure donation page

Urgent – Photographer Needed
The photos at the first shoot were taken by professional local photographer, Adam T Adamis (https://adamis.co.uk) who very generously waived his fee and to whom we are extremely grateful. We are now looking for further photographers to help us complete the project during the months of May and June. Please let us know if you are able to volunteer, or know someone who can, by emailing michaelbcookbook@gmail.com

Fun Run
As this is a community project, we want to involve the children too. Due to popular demand, the school will be organising a sponsored Fun Run to raise funds for Michael Batoux’s Cookbook. The name of every child who takes part will feature on a dedicated page in the book. More details to follow.

The Cookbook Team
The team is a group of volunteering parents and school cooks, inspired by Michael to make this book happen. We were thrilled to complete the first photo shoot over the Easter Break.

We hope you will join us to help celebrate Michael Batoux and ensure his culinary legacy lives on at Highgate Primary.

Many thanks and bon appétit!
