ROGER Ward is hoping to book the cooks. Eighteen months after resigning from the Association of Colleges after concealing payments he received as a consultant, he is embarking on his latest venture.

This time it is likely to prove uncontroversial with anyone except maybe the capital's restaurant reviewers. At the end of this month, Rog is opening his own bistro.

It's in Muswell Hill, north London (most famously home of Ray Davies of the Kinks), and can be found opposite the Odeon if any further education principals looking for somewhere to exercise their expense accounts are interested. It will be called On The Hill.

That is, if Roger can find the staff in time. It's a modest venture - Roger, recently married for the third time, was seen last week painting the place himself - and according to a note pinned to the door, he's looking for a chef.
