McDougalls Young Baking competition returns

Our McDougalls Young Baking Team of the Year competition organised by our Foodservice team is back for its fourth year. 

Schools looking to bake their way to the top spot can put forward a team of up to three enthusiastic 7-11 year olds for their chance to win £1,000 worth of kitchen equipment for their school. The competition theme will continue to focus on local produce, encouraging schools to source local ingredients for their McDougalls recipes.

Mark Taylor - Customer Controller, Foodservice, said: “It is really important to us that the McDougalls Young Baking Team of the Year competition helps develop children’s cooking skills, in addition to educating them on where ingredients come from.”

The teams will be tasked with creating either a sweet or savoury recipe, which includes one local ingredient and one McDougalls Flour Based Mix which will then be judged by a panel of experts including Mark Rigby, Executive Chef.

Sarah Middlemiss, School Chef at Chapter House Preparatory School, 2017 winner, commented: “We were delighted to be crowned the champions of the 2017 competition. Our recipe was inspired by our school tradition of serving meringues with berries for our school birthday celebrations, and also by our delicious home grown strawberries from the school’s very own vegetable garden. The experience has been invaluable for the children and I would encourage everyone to take part. The children have not only learnt new cooking and teamwork skills, but they have had fun in the process. Good luck to all the 2018 entrants!”
