Young Chef Competition Launch
The Chester Food Drink & Lifestyle Festival is on the hunt to find Cheshire’s best young baker, with the finalists cooking at Chester Racecourse during the festival and being judged by none other than Jean-Christophe Novelli.
Kris Beaumont from sponsor Samphire said: “We believe the future of our food and drink industry lies with the encouragement you can give to young cooks and that is why we wanted to be part of this competition.
“I would encourage young up-and-coming bakers to get involved. The theme is a Sweet or Savoury Traditional Family Bake but feel free to add your own interpretation – it can be something with a twist.
“It could be an apple pie with a secret ingredient or a savoury bake with something sweet added that great Granny used to bake, a real family favourite. Who is our next Michel Roux, Jamie Oliver or Nadiya Hussein. It could be you, so why not impress us with your originality and skills?”
The competition is now open to all under-12s, and the closing date for entries is 28 February 2017. Samphire will then select four finalists who will be invited to Chester Racecourse to recreate their masterpiece on 15 April. They will also win:
VIP TICKETS TO ATTEND THE CHESTER FOOD, DRINK & LIFESTYLE FESTIVAL WITH YOUR FAMILY, INCLUDING MEAL VOUCHERS AND CHAMPAGNE* AND MEMBERSHIP OF CLUB INDIVIDUAL. (*for adults only)
The overall winner will receive a family ticket to Alton Towers that includes a meal for four at the Rollercoaster Restaurant.
