Pabulum British Food Festival

We are inviting pupils to take part in our cookery competition running throughout the summer break.

This is the first activity in our Pabulum British Food Festival where we are celebrating the great British produce featured on our menus.

We have created a competition to encourage all young aspiring cooks to create and submit their recipes using fresh and seasonal British produce.

This could be a family or personal favourite, or even something they have always wanted to try and cook.

The competition is also designed to get families cooking during the summer break. There are lots of benefits to cooking with children – it’s fun, inclusive and gives children a greater awareness of their diets and the food that they eat.

Children who enjoy cooking at home will also benefit in other areas of development, such as their confidence, problem solving, following instructions, creativity and physical skills such as fine motor and eye-hand coordination and of course, food science.

Our winners will get the opportunity to have their meal cooked for the whole school by two of our fantastic executive chefs, as well as a winning a super cookbook and a British artisan food hamper to take home with them.

The winner will be announced on Friday 10th September 2021.
