Young chef competition

Youngsters are being given the chance to showcase their culinary skills as part of a cookery competition.

Young people aged between 12 and 16 years old are invited to take part in a Junior Master Chef competition as part of the 2012 Peak District Food and Drink Festival.

The contest is running throughout March and has been organised by the University of Derby and Tideswell School of Food.

The contestants will be asked to submit their own unique recipe, with a focus on seasonal produce.

The six best recipes will be chosen and their chefs taken on a free cookery master class at Tideswell School of Food.

The overall winner of the competition will receive a prize courtesy of Denby.
