cooking_compOn Saturday 12th February 10 teams of Cub Scouts took part in the Annual District Cooking Competition.  There were 5 teams in the morning session and 5 teams in the afternoon session.  The theme for this year was “Asia” and all the teams had to prepare and cook a 2 course meal for less than £5.00 –not easy!!

The standard of the food was as usual, very high.  The winners from the morning session were the 17th Reigate and the winners from the afternoon session were the 9th Horley Cub Pack.  The overall winners were the 17th Reigate as they had gained half a point more in the morning.  The 17th Reigate now go forward to the Surrey County Cooking Competition semi finals in November.

One photo shows the winning team from the 17th Reigate who were Matthew Cove, James Greatwood, Alice Mills and Thomas Bushell and the meal they cooked was vegetable soup as the starter with a main course of lemon and lime chicken with egg fried rice and peas.

The other photo is of the afternoon session winners, 9th Horley. Alex Heron-McLaren, Mitchell Hatten, Alyss Bray and Tom Waters.  They cooked Hot and spicy soup followed by Chicken Katsu curry.

Well done to everyone who took part.
