Help us find the South East’s best Young Cook 2018!
We are excited to announce our support of this year’s Young Cooks competition in partnership with the KM Charity Team.
Young Cooks is a Masterchef style competition for primary & secondary school children in the South East and is all aboutÂ encouraging youngÂ people into the kitchen to explore the abundance of greatÂ produce that isÂ at their fingertips.
To enter, all theyÂ need to doÂ isÂ prepare a dish that they’veÂ created, which is tasty, healthy and showcases their cooking skills.
Top marks go to those who cook with local produce or withÂ some of the more unusual ingredients we stock… globe artichokes, kohl rabi, rambutan, the list goes on. We alwaysÂ encourage seasonal eating & love to supportÂ local producers, and weÂ also take great pride in ourÂ exotic produce &Â seeing it being used in innovative ways.
Earlier this year, weÂ were invited along toÂ the 2018 launch event, whereÂ 2017 winner Charlotte Fife (who is only 15 years old!), headed up the kitchen at the Abbots Barton hotel in Canterbury. Her menuÂ of Pork LoinÂ withÂ Cider Gravy and Gypsy Tart with Cream showcased some of the finest Kentish ingredients… andÂ both dishesÂ could’ve easily come from a professional kitchen!
