Young Masterchefs get together for a bake-off at Blundell's School

Blundell�s Prep School in Devon hosted a Junior Masterchef competition for four other local schools, when fifty-six Year 2 pupils learned how to make and bake bread rolls and then had their creations judged by a professional chef.

The children worked in mixed groups to produce cottage rolls and hedgehog rolls. After the weighing, kneading, baking and tasting, their finished rolls were judged by Chef Jean-Christophe Le Grand of Woods Restaurant, Dulverton. The best bread-maker from each school was awarded the title of BPS Masterchef 2012 and a smart apron printed with the accolade.

Andy Southgate, Head Master of Blundell�s Prep School, said �This was a great opportunity for all the children taking part to come together, learn new skills and have fun. I�m delighted to host this event in the school�s food technology room and hope this event will lead to other schools using the wonderful facilities here again in the future.�

After the competition, Jean-Christophe treated pupils and their parents to a culinary master class, when he demonstrated how to prepare and cook simple but sophisticated food.
