Cooking Prodigy Luke Hayes-Alexander schooled on Rosemary Sutcliff | Sutcliff Discovery of the Day

His parents, watching their son grow increasingly miserable in public school, enrolled him (Luke Hayes-Alexander, now of Luke’s Gastronomy in Toronto, Canada) at Sempar, a small private school that provided a classical education. At the school, the boy encountered for the first time a passion for learning that matched his own. He studied Beowulf and Rosemary Sutcliff’s novels about Roman Britain; his class acted out the parts in Julius Caesar. Computers were available but rarely turned on. Each week, students were escorted to the local public library to borrow as many books as they could carry.
