Calling all local amateur Masterchefs to get in to the kitchen and take part in the 2013 Congleton on a Plate Cookery Competition.


This new and exciting competition will be part of this year’s Congleton Food Festival and will give all local aspiring chefs the opportunity to put forward their favourite recipes and have the chance to win a cash prize.

1st prize    – £100

2nd prize   – £50

3rd prize    – £25


All you need to do is to put forward your favourite recipe for a main course meal that you love to make. The ingredients must be for two people at a total cost of £7.50 or less.


To enter please send us or email a photograph of your dish, the recipe, a breakdown of ingredient costs and the background to the origination of your entry in 150 words or less and your name and contact details.


The top three entries will be invited to the Food Festival on June 16th to prepare their dish in a private professional kitchen and then present to an invited panel of judges.


From the entries we would love to compile a Congleton Food Festival Book of Recipes. Please state clearly on your entry if you would not be happy for us to include your recipe.


So get out those treasured family dishes or create something new for 2013 and send your entries by Wednesday 29th May. Judging will take place on Friday 31st. Winners will be contacted on Monday 3rd June


The competition will not be open for professional chefs or family members of the Festival Team
