Cook It!, the Guild of Food Writers’ annual cooking competition for children, is 10 years old in 2013. To celebrate, aspiring young cooks are being offered the chance to win a fantastic family break, courtesy of the sponsor Gold Top.
For Cook It! 2013, the Guild of Food Writers is inviting those aged 10 to 16 to create a two-course meal that they would cook to impress their friends. Stefan Gates, the celebrity TV cook, author and one of the competition’s judges, explains what the judges are looking for: “We want to see a main course and dessert that not only look and taste delicious but show real skill. It is also vital that the recipes show as much originality as possible.”
To coincide with Cook It!’s birthday celebrations, the Guild is extending the competition to 15 and 16-year-olds for the first time. There are two age groups, 10 to 13 years and 14 to 16 years (on or by Saturday 31 August 2013), with the winner in each category winning a four-night family break at Sandsend Cottages in the fantastic seaside village of Sandsend near Whitby, North Yorkshire.
The deadline for entries is Friday 19 April 2013. You can find out more HERE
