Food lesson by former Hitchin teacher

A TEACHER has turned to cooking books after setting up his own healthy fast food delivery business.
Hitchin resident Adam Wharton has decided to have a career change, setting up Potz three weeks ago.
The fledgeling company, which delivers to Stevenage, Hitchin and Letchworth GC, specialises in lunchtime meals which arrive quickly but without the unhealthy tag attached.
The 27-year-old’s menu includes dishes named chickerizo stew, combining chicken and chorizo, a mackbac salad of mackerel and bacon potatoes and a chilli con carnivore concoction.
“I was teaching until Christmas but I’ve always had a passion for cooking and wanted to start up a healthy fast food business,” said Adam, who lives in Nightingale Road.
“The main reason I’ve set it up is there’s definitely a gap in the market but it’s also a chance for people to have food that is healthy but not going so far that you lose all the taste. It’s trying to change the thought that fast food has to be unhealthy to be tasty and that you don’t have to have sandwiches for lunch every day.”
Adam, who used to teach in Welwyn Garden City, will also have a stall set up at Hitchin Market from March and is eventually looking to expand into a takeaway service at evening and weekends.
