Serve up more food of the proles;Letter

Your editorial is right that schools should teach pupils how to cook: boys as well as girls.

Twenty-five years ago at a North London comprehensive, I was consigned to technical drawing and metalwork classes which have been of no subsequent use to me, while not being allowed to attend those on cookery and needlework which most certainly would have been.

But I do hope that in the age of New Labour the proletarian cuisine of black pudding, pie and mash and fish and chips will not be overlooked.
