Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food has hosted a Cook-off between five local primary schools in London.

Jamie Oliver and Tefal inspire kids to cook

The Cook-off took place in Jamie’s Ministry of Food Stratford’s training kitchen in East Ham Leisure Centre in London on Saturday November 30.

The pupils received a hands-on cooking workshop which included preparing a vegetarian fajita and food tasting experiments. They were also coached on using Tefal Jamie Oliver pans, which were donated by Tefal as part of their 10-year partnership celebration with Jamie Oliver.

The young cooks were then challenged to create and submit a recipe for a meal for four people costing less than £5. Recipes had to be easy and nutritionally balanced.

Carlos Montes of Ministry of Food Stratford said: “We had some fantastic recipes which sounded fantastic on paper. One team even sent in a short film!”

He continued: “The competition between the five schools was fierce; all the children cooked like real junior master-chefs.”

Prizes were provided by Jamie’s Italian Stratford, Active Newham, West Ham FC, the Lord Mayor and Tefal.

Jennika Kalliala, Senior Product Manager for High-end Cookware at Groupe SEB, was equally impressed: “We were delighted to have been involved in this schools cooking competition. The results were amazing and just goes to show how cooking can be such a passion for all ages!”

Jamie’s partnership with Tefal is now his longest commercial partnership.
