They may not be “masterchefs” but local primary school students sure knew how to cook up a storm at Emerald Secondary Collage on Wednesday 23 October.
Students from Harkaway, Emerald, Carrington, and Boronia West primary schools went head on in a cook off to see which students could create the most delicious meal.
Emerald Primary School Students took out best entrée in the competition, while Harkaway Primary School whipped up the number one main and Carrington Primary School the best dessert.
Food judges Gembrook MP Brad Battin, and chefs from Incy Wincy and The General in Emerald selected Harkaway and Carrington primary schools as equal first overall.
“The kids loved it. I’ve already had emails from teachers having kids requesting another cook off this year,” Emerald Primary School kitchen garden program coordinator Jess Tannock said.
“All staff involved yesterday would love to see more of these types of events happen more often and the kids all agree.
“Hopefully we can get more schools involved in this to encourage healthy eating, knowledge around food preparation and sharing food with people from all communities.”
