Cookery Queen judges student bake-off

Cookery Queen judges student bake-off

Well done to budding chef Jack Robinson in Year 9 who scooped the winning title at the bake-off final at the Malton Food Festival.

The competition took place at Malton Cookery School where students had to adapt a traditional recipe for a Suet Roll. They were judged by cookery queen Prue Leith who takes over from Mary Berry as the new Great British Bake Off judge on the Channel 4 show.

The competition was open to students in Year 9 and was whittled down to just six students in the final – India Hall, Rosie Smith, Phoebe Nicholson, Jaden Jefferson, Jack Robinson and Lily Thompson.

The recipe that the students had to work from was taken from a new book, Malton Goes to Market, a collection of old-fashioned, local recipes which is being adapted by Malton Museum Food Historian Peter Brears .

Food technology teacher Justine Warner said: “The students have really enjoyed this challenge and it was fantastic that Prue Leith was able to judge their work. One of the students said it had been her dream to be involved in something like this.”

Now, Jack and the runners up will be invited to the book launch on July 8th.

Well done to all our students involved in the challenge!
