UK based data centre and hosting specialist VooServers is sponsoring a competition that aims to find the most talented young chefs in the county.
The KM Kent Cooks contest invites pupils across Kent aged five to 18 years to test their culinary skills for the chance to take part in a Masterchef-style cook off and win top prizes.
Technical director of VooServers Matt Parkinson said: “We are delighted to be involved with Kent Cooks and it’s great to see young people with a passion for cooking, producing their own dishes from scratch.
“Many of the entries that we have seen online have been of an incredibly high standard and we are looking forward to tasting and judging them at the competition final.”
Staged by the charity department at the KM Group to promote healthy lifestyles, categories include primary school pupils, secondary students and a family category for adult and child teams.
The category winners and overall top Kent Cook will receive a share of £500 as well as a goody bag and Masterchef cook book.
Organiser Nancy Clark of Kent Cooks said: “It’s all about encouraging young people to think creatively about food, healthier options and the variety of Kentish produce available.”
To enter the contest, young cooks must submit photographs of their signature dishes along with descriptions of cooking method to the Kent Cooks website before the November 4 deadline.
Finalists will be invited to attend the live cook-off on November 27 when category winners and the overall KM Kent Cooks champion will be announced.
Kent Cooks is also supported by Countrystyle, Mini Babybel, Three R’s Teacher Recruitment, DFDS Seaways, Kent Cookery School, Golding Homes, Orbit South, Brakes, Carefree Comms and Licensing Consultancy Services.
