Dear children and parents,
We are excited to announce that Cliftonville Primary School has been invited to take part in the Thanet Earth School Recipe Competition this year. The purpose of this competition is to raise awareness of healthy ingredients and encourage experimentation in the kitchen. The Masterchef-style event takes place at East Kent College and provides the perfect occasion for pupils aged between 5-16 to showcase their ideas.
As a school we are invited to submit up to four entries for consideration by a panel of local chefs. The winner in each category will see their recipe transformed into a recipe card handed out in Tesco Extra, Westwood Cross, with their school receiving a voucher for £300 to spend on cookery equipment. All 12 finalists invited to take part will receive a beautiful cookbook and a special apron.
To enter the competition children should:
Create a recipe that contains at least one of the essential fresh ingredients (tomatoes, cucumber or peppers)
The recipe can be hot or cold but must take no longer than 40 minutes to prepare. The finalists will be expected to prepare and cook their dish themselves, with assistance provided for health and safety purposes
Recipes should be creative with limited parental involvement
The recipes will be shortlisted on the entrant’s effort, imagination, variety of ingredients and appeal to determine which four will be submitted
Completed entries should be handed in at the school office or given to Miss Powell by Wednesday 23rd March
Schools shortlisted by Thanet Earth will be notified by 29th April 2016, with finalists invited to cook their recipes with support from East Kent College on Wednesday 18th May, 2.30pm-5pm where the winners will be announced and prizes awarded.
I look forward to receiving your entries!
