A RANGE of mouth-watering dishes was made by potential kitchen stars of the future at a school’s junior masterchef challenge.
Teams of 10 and 11-year-olds at St Swithun’s Catholic Primary in Southsea cooked up curries, pasties, treacle puddings and more in just over an hour as they strived to make the tastiest meals. The event was a chance to show off the talents of the cookery club members – and it went down well with the audience who lapped up every last morsel.
Ron Parker, who runs the school’s cookery club, said: ‘We had planned to crown a winner, but they were all so good we couldn’t choose between them, so everyone will be getting a golden spoon.’
He added: ‘There were definitely more Gordon Ramsays than Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstalls on the night – more leaders than followers!’
