Young master chefs aged between 5 and 11 years old can test their culinary skills in a new competition run by Rumwell Farm Shop.
The challenge is for entrants to create a dish using British apples as the main ingredient to create pies, chutneys, crumbles – or other tasty morsels. Dishes must be submitted to the farm shop on Saturday, October 3 at 10am for judging. Each dish will be judged by Anne Mitchell, Co-Owner of Rumwell Farm Shop and Cafe and her chefs. Prizes include a children’s hamper for the winner and confectionery goodie bags for two runners-up.
The competition is designed to promote British Food Fortnight – held at the same time as harvest festivals – which was introduced in 2002 in the wake of the Foot and Mouth crisis. It is now firmly established as a flagship event on the national, retail, catering and school calendar to celebrate the diversity and excellence of food available in Britain.
Rumwell Farm Shop will also have food and drink tastings to celebrate British Food Fortnight and to showcase the best in Westcountry produce. Details available on www.rumwellfarmshop.com
