Pupils get creative in the kitchen

Tuesday 1st July 2014

Senacre Wood Primary School in Maidstone is through to the final of the Kent is Delicious cookery competition.

The Graveney Road school will be competing against three other schools for the hotly contested title at the Kent showground at Detling on July 11.

This time, students will have a panel of food producers, chefs and farmers to impress with their qualifying Kentish Breakfast Frittata.

The competition, which was open to all primary schools in Kent, invited youngsters to come up with a breakfast dish using home-grown and locally produced ingredients.

The contest is organised by the Diocese of Canterbury’s Communities and Partnerships Framework in partnership with the Kent Agricultural Society, Produced in Kent and NFU Swale, with the aim of raising children’s awareness of the quality and importance of local, seasonal produce.

The Revd Canon Caroline Pinchbeck said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the standard of entries to this year’s competition, which is now in its third year. It’s clearly provoked a lot of thought, and fun among the schools who have taken part, and we wish all our finalists the best of luck.”
