If you know a young person who loves cooking, now is their chance to show off their culinary skills in the Guild of Food Writers’ annual Cook It competition.
Not only could they wow the judges in a cook-off held at the Electrolux Training Academy, there’s also a chance to win a family holiday, courtesy of sponsor Gold Top. Plus, there are lots more prizes to win.
To enter the Cook It competition, the Guild of Food Writers is asking 10-16 year olds to create a celebratory two-course meal to impress their friends and family.
“We are looking for a main meal and a dessert,” explained Jayne Cross of Cook It, “that not only look and taste delicious, but are all your own work and show impressive skill in the kitchen.”
There are two age groups (10-13 years and 14-16 years as of August 31), with the winner in each category eligible for the first prize of a four-night family break at Tredinney Farm in Cornwall.
Six finalists will be invited to recreate their winning recipes in a cook-off at the newly designed Electrolux Training Academy on June 17 in front of a team of judges: cookery writers Sam Stern and Felicity Cloake and food writer and TV consultant Justine Pattison.
For full details, entrants can download an entry form from www.gfw.co.uk. The deadline for entries is Friday 4 April 4.
