Ready, steady, CookIt!

February 3, 2012 at 5:56 pm Leave a comment

We like a challenge here at Positive PR, and as you know we love food – we also like anything that inspires young people to get busy in the kitchen (and we don’t just mean licking the spoon and cleaning out the cake bowl!). Which is why we are right behind The Guild of Food Writers’ annual CookIt! competition.

With the theme ‘Going for Gold’, they are looking for aspiring young cooks across the country to create a winning two‑course meal – main meal and pudding – for a favourite sports person (if Katie were eligible she says she’d design a meal for the Formula One racing drive Jensen Button…  hey, now that would be seriously fast food!). Entrants, aged from 10 to 14 on Friday 31 August 2012, are encouraged to let their culinary imaginations run wild (pineapple and mushroom ice-cream, anyone?), and points will be awarded for technical skill, originality, creativity and presentation. Sponsored by Gold Top and supported by Electrolux, the competition’s first prize is a week’s family holiday in Cornwall and the winning child’s school will win £100 worth of book vouchers. Six finalists will be invited to recreate their winning dishes in a gold medal cook-off at the newly designed Electrolux test kitchens in May. Know a mini Nigella or junior Jamie who might be interested? Then send their recipes and entry form to Debbie Hearn, c/o The Guild of Food Writers, 34 Greenacres, Woolton Hill, Newbury, Berkshire RG20 9TA by Friday 20 April 2012.
