All aboard for young cooks com­pe­ti­tion

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

Kent ferry firm DFDS Se­aways is sup­port­ing the KM Kent Cooks com­pe­ti­tion for the fourth year in a row.

The county’s of­fi­cial school cook­ing con­test, or­gan­ised by the KM’s char­ity de­part­ment, helps chil­dren learn about healthy eat­ing and put their culi­nary skills to the test.

Matthew McPhail, food and bev­er­age man­ager at DFDS Se­aways, said: “We are de­lighted to be spon­sor­ing the com­pe­ti­tion again. We pride our­selves on of­fer­ing qual­ity food on our cross-Chan­nel ferries. The win­ning dish this year will be served in the Road Kings res­tau­rant on board the ferries for our com­mer­cial driv­ers to en­joy.”

Kent Cooks is open to five- to 18-year-olds and the dead­line is Novem­ber 4. Cat­e­gories in­clude ‘fam­i­lies’ for par­ent and child en­trants, ‘pri­mary school’ and ‘se­condary school’. To en­ter, chil­dren need to pre­pare a healthy dish, with each recipe added to the www. kent­cooks.co.uk web­site.

There will be a Masterchef­style fi­nal in Novem­ber at Kent Cook­ery School where a panel of food ex­perts will de­cide which young­sters are the cream of the crop.
