All aboard for young cooks competition
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.
