CANtastic Recipe Competition winners!

Thank you to all of the fantastic secondary pupils who entered our CANtastic recipe competition for Healthy Eating Week 2023. The standard was extremely high and the judges were deeply impressed with all our entries.

We are pleased to announce our three winners as:

  • Joel, age 12, Ermysted's Grammar School: Joel's Spicy Chicken
  • Laura, age 15, St Genevieve's High School: Mixed bean salad with garlic-infused flatbread, hummus dip, and Dijon dressing
  • Matthew, age 17, St. Dominic's School: Vegan Potato Cakes

Guest judge, Theo Michaels, had this to say about our winning recipes:

Joel – "Joel's Spicy chicken made our mouths water with real consideration to the combination of flavours!"

Laura – "Laura’s bean salad was brilliantly done and impressed judges with her homemade flatbreads and dips – well done!"

Matthew"A nice take on a classic using canned ingredients to create his vegan potato cakes and the suggestion to serve it with tomato bruschetta created a well rounded meal."
