Young people are annually invited to take part in the South East’s Young Cooks cookery competition with the winners receiving a share of £500!
Some finalists will be selected to cook at a Showcase Lunch at The Dog in Wingham and may have the opportunity to attend a master class with an award winning chef.
Not just a cooking competition but a way for children to develop an understanding of the importance of food and nutrition.
This programme is a way for your school to encourage children to try new things and develop a basic life skill and, for some, a future career choice. We aren’t just looking for the next Master Chef, we want all children to understand that being healthy and cooking is something they can all do!
