Scouts at county cooking competition

19th February 2016 by Claire Shadbolt

Six intrepid scouts traipsed to Hook to represent 28th Croydon scouts in Greater London South West county cooking competition.

The theme was  A Meal Fit for Today and our scouts choose menus based on that.

Team A choose a start of mozzarella cheese and tomato which was beautifully presented.  Followed by chicken casserole which was a challenge being prepared in a small space and on a gas burner.  And for dessert they made Eton Mess.

Team B chose mackerel, halloumi and salad for a starter.  It was a shame that the one piece that the judges tried had a bone in it even though the fish had bought deboned.  Their main course was breaded chicken and salad in wraps.  Finally for dessert they did home-made icecream.  It must be the only recipe that calls for duct tape and woolly gloves.

The competition was fierce and there were lots of teams.  Team A came joint fifth and Team B came 18.  Well done both teams.
