Rising Talent

Premier Foods is on the lookout again for young, innovative bakers to enter its McDougalls Young Baking Team of the Year competition.2016-mcybt-winner Last year, Spaldwick Community Primary School were crowned champions, and now, the search is on for a 2017 winner!

“After being blown away by the creativity we have seen over the last two years, we are extremely excited to be launching this competition,” said Sarah Robb, channel marketing manager at Premier Foods. “We are passionate about helping to inspire children to cook through the McDougalls Young Baking Team of the Year and last year’s theme of using local ingredients was so popular, we are bringing it back. Spaldwick Community Primary School used eggs which were laid by local chickens, and strawberries grown nearby to make their winning profiteroles. They certainly set the bar high and we look forward to seeing what this year’s teams will be baking.”

The winning team, lead by a school caterer, will be rewarded with £1,000 worth of kitchen equipment for their school.

Caterers must put together a team of up to three 7 to 11 year olds. Each team will receive a McDougalls toolkit which includes product samples, an application form and recipe inspiration to get them started. Teams should create one savoury and one sweet recipe, which includes at least one local ingredient. Online registration is open for caterers to register their details and interest at
