Things will be hotting up in the kitchen on Saturday 19 April, with the finals of a Bake Off competition run by East Riding of Yorkshire Council at the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School at Southburn.
Amateur chefs and bakers who have reached the finals will be creating tasty dishes featuring food leftovers, and the winners in two categories – 11 to 16 year olds and 17 and over - will win £100 of vouchers for the Michelin-starred Pipe and Glass.
Runners up will receive stainless steel kitchen recycling bins, and third placed finalists will take home a signed Jamie Oliver Save with Jamie cookbook.
The finalists’ meals will be judged by chef James Mackenzie. Cooking starts at 10.30 and the judging will be at 12 noon.
The finalists are:
Over 17 category: Mrs Pamela Styche of Preston; Mrs Jenny Appleby of Cranswick; Mrs Helen Bean of Driffield.
11-17 category: Joseph Bremer of Brandesburton; Jenny Smith of Cherry Burton; Kate Evans of Beverley.
Councillor Symon Fraser, East Riding of Yorkshire Council portfolio holder for environment, housing and planning, said: “I’m really looking forward to attending the Bake Off finals on Saturday, and tasting the winning entries.
“This competition shows how easy it is to save money and waste less food by using up leftovers – and produce fantastic results.”
James Mackenzie said: “I very much hope this competition will be great fun on Saturday, but will also highlight just how much good food we waste, simply because people don’t know how to use leftovers to make delicious dishes.”
