Biggenden kids cook up storm

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

MARY­BOR­OUGH judge Bev Hib­berd taste tested 183 en­tries as she again took on the ju­nior cook­ing judg­ing at Biggenden Show.

On the Thurs­day be­fore the show, Michelle Kinbacher and her team of vol­un­teers took 28 chil­dren un­der their wings in the show hall kitchen to en­cour­age them to cook.

Mrs Kinbacher said the event had a one year old who man­aged to put some lol­lies on a bis­cuit, de­spite eat­ing many of them, while one three year old turned up in a chef’s out­fit.

“It is won­der­ful, the mums and grand­moth­ers who come along. I couldn’t do it with­out them. It is a team ef­fort,” Mrs Kinbacher said.

Win­ner of the kitchen ap­pli­ance do­nated by Lance and Stephanie Whitaker was Year 10 River­side Chris­tian Col­lege stu­dent Cooper Bol­land.

Mrs Hib­berd said the young mas­ter chefs were im­prov­ing and there were some promis­ing cooks in the un­der-12 class.

She en­cour­aged the chil­dren to make sure they read their sched­ules as some were dis­qual­i­fied.

She said some en­tered six dishes where the sched­ule said four.

“This meant that en­try was au­to­mat­i­cally dis­qual­i­fied,” she said.
