Young people are invited to take part in Kent and Medway’s annual masterchef-style event.
To enter they need to prepare a dish they have created, which they think is delicious, healthy and showcases their cooking skills.
The Kent Cooks judges love to see local produce being used so thought should be given to this.
Any child or young person aged between 6 and 19 years old may enter KM Kent Cooks and finalists will be invited to cook their dish for our VIP panel at the live final at the end of November at East Kent College in Broadstairs.
The aim is to develop the confidence and abilities of young people to prepare meals to a fixed budget, as well as to increase awareness of healthy options and locally grown Kentish produce.
Finalists will not only have to cook their dish, they will have to spend a few minutes explaining to the judges how and why they created it, so confident presentation skills are also needed. All Primary finalists will be reimbursed £5 towards the cost of their ingredients. All Secondary and Family finalists will be reimbursed £10 towards the cost of their ingredients.
PLEASE NOTE: THE CLOSING DATE IS 1st NOVEMBER.
