If you watch Masterchef, Saturday Kitchen and Sunday Brunch thinking that you could do better, then this is the competition for you!
The search is on to find the UK’s home-grown culinary superstar, with the launch of Aubrey Allen’s ‘Home Cook of the Year’ competition with the help of celebrity chefs, Brian Turner CBE and Andreas Antona as judges.
Aspiring home cooks of all ages are invited to enter by submitting their most favourite three course menu, which includes a cold starter, a hot main course using Aubrey Allen’s succulent ‘Farm Assured’ Cornish lamb and their very best dessert.
Four finalists will be short-listed to take part in the final at the Leamington Spa Food & Drink Festival on Sunday 7 September, which features a live cook-off for the main course, as well as tastings of their pre-prepared starter and dessert.
Peter Allen from Aubrey Allen, The Chef’s Butcher said: “This competition is designed to highlight the amazing culinary talent that’s practised in the home and we’re welcoming entries from all generations who don’t have any professional cooking experience.”
In addition to being crowned ‘Home Cook of the Year’, the winner will receive two places at Aubrey Allen’s Butchery School and two places at Simpsons Cookery School, including dinner for two and an overnight stay at Simpsons in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
Entry forms are available to download from www.aubreyallenleamington.co.uk and entries close on 15 August 2014.
So get your thinking caps on and you could scoop the Home Cook of the Year title, plus these fabulous prizes from Aubrey Allen and Simpsons.
