Ready berry cook

Kirkby C of E Primary School were celebrating becoming regional finalists in a national cooking competition, spearheaded by CBBC presenter Stefan Gates, to find the country’s most creative sweet or savoury berry recipe that tastes great and is nutritionally rich.

Beating hundreds of other entries, Kirkby C of E became one of eight regional finalists to win a blender.

The school’s entry was a unique recipe for ‘Strawberries and cheese on toast’ and made with low-fat cream cheese, strawberries and brioche.

The Let’s Get Cooking club held a tasting session and took samples round the school, involving over 50 people in total.
Elaine Parr, who led the cookery club, said: “We tried to think outside the box when designing our recipe, and eventually created a dish with a twist which was both delicious and healthy.

“We are so happy to be regional winners.”

“The main aim of the Ready Berry cook challenge is to teach kids about the health benefits of eating berries and inspire them to cook from scratch.”

Laurence Olins, chairman of British Summer Fruits, said: “The quality of entries we’ve received has been superb. It’s been a real challenge choosing finalists from such talented schools, as the huge variety and creativity in submissions, from traditional dishes with a modern twist to innovative new recipes, has been second to none.”
