CookIt! 2007: A Licence to Bake!
Do you know anyone aged between 8 and 14 are loves to bake? Then they can enter this year’s national cooking competition! To enter the Guild of Food Writers CookIt! competition, come up with a two course menu of main course and dessert. This year’s competition aims to encourage children to bake and one of the dishes on the menu must be an oven-baked dish, either savoury or sweet, such as a pastry pie, flan or cake.
Send in your recipes by Thursday 12 April 2007 for your chance to win fabulous prizes.
Six talented finalists will be chosen from the entrants of this nationwide competition to come to London on Thursday 24 May to prepare their meals in front of the judges in the BBC Good Food Magazine test kitchen. This year’s judges include celebrity chef Marcus Wareing (BBC Two’s Great British Menu), cookery writer Sophie Grigson, chef Mark Hix (Executive Chef, Caprice Holdings) and BBC Good Food Magazine’s Food Director Sara Buenfeld. Expenses are paid for the six finalists and an accompanying adult to attend the final judging in London.
The schools attended by each of the finalists this year will be invited to join the ‘Chefs Adopt a School’ scheme run by the Academy of Culinary Arts. Under the scheme, members of the Academy ‘adopt’ a school and teach primary and secondary school pupils at that school about food, where it comes from, how to taste and how to cook it.For further information go to www.gfw.co.uk/campaigns/cookit_main.html.
