Could you be crowned McDougalls Young Baking Team of the Year 2015?
To kick off another exciting year and help celebrate 150 years of McDougalls, at Premier Foods we are launching a brand new competition designed specifically for the education channel, which will unveil the first ‘McDougalls Young Baking Team of the Year’. We will be on the lookout across the nation for an innovative and enthusiastic team of young bakers to crown as our champions in a live grand finale taking place at LACA – The Main Event on Thursday, 9th July.
Using McDougalls Flour or a product from the Flour Based Mix Range, school caterers are tasked with putting together a small team of up to three seven to 11 year olds and leading them to victory by developing two recipes for the panel of judges. Teams must register their interest below before receiving their McDougalls Toolkit which includes product samples, application forms and recipe inspiration to get them started. To make it to the live final, teams must create one sweet and one savoury recipe, meeting the ‘birthday party’ theme, and submit them by Friday, 1st May 2015. The recipes will be judged by a panel of judges including representatives from LACA, the Craft Guild of Chefs and Premier Foods.
Sarah Gray, Marketing Manager, at Premier Foods commented, “We are excited to launch this competition exclusively for the education sector. We see this as an opportunity to help improve children’s cooking skills. As a trusted brand celebrating 150 years of best in class baking, the McDougalls sweet and savoury flour based mixes are ideal to help school caterers provide a varied menu throughout the year. We look forward to receiving the entries and seeing what each team has been inspired to create for us.”
The winning team will be rewarded with top prizes for their school worth £1,000, and the shortlisted recipes they create will be made available for all to download from our website. If you are looking for a challenge that demonstrates dedication and team work whilst teaching the children new skills, then register your interest below by Saturday, 14th March 2015.
