Nanango’s Copper Country Restaurant is sponsoring a “Junior Chef Award” at this year’s Nanango Show.
Junior chefs (ie aged under 18) have been invited to create an innovative sweet or savory quiche or tart to their own recipe.
They must supply the recipe – and the quiche or tart – for judging at the show.
Kerri Southee, from Copper Country, said the restaurant was proud to sponsor a culinary competition dedicated to the development of budding local junior chefs.
“Competing is about gaining experience and going up against your peers and seeing what other junior chefs are creating,” she said.
“This will have a very positive impact on their skills as a junior chef and we hope all of the competitors will increase their working knowledge and their gastronomic imagination.”
There is prize money and a trophy for 1st place, and prizes for 2nd and 3rd.
As well, the winning recipe will be featured on the Copper Country Restaurant menu with the winner being acknowledged as the creator.
“There were a number of exceptional entries last year and we hope that this year, with the option to be able to create sweet or savory, more Junior Chefs will get inspired,” Kerri said.
“So get your aprons and your thinking caps on and get creating!”
Entries need to be in by 8:30am for judging on Friday, April 11.
