Belling unveils winners of its first Cookery Club competition

In Industry News On

Cooking appliance manufacturer Belling has announced the winners of its first Cookery Club competition and presented them each with £2,000 worth of cooking appliances.

Belling Cookery Club was launched to support primary schools, many of which don’t have the facilities to deliver practical cookery experiences – despite cooking and nutrition now forming part of the curriculum across the UK.

Timbercroft Primary School in Plumstead, London, and Shawhead Primary School in Shawhead, Dumfries, Scotland, were amongst dozens of schools across the UK that took part in the national competition. Pupils were asked to design a healthy meal, explain its nutritional value and draw a picture of it.

The Shawhead pupils wrote (and performed) a rap – or ‘Wrap’ – to describe why they liked the foods in their meal which included peppers, carrots, lettuce and pineapple for their five-a-day, spicy chicken for protein and yoghurt for calcium.

The Year One class at Timbercroft all drew pictures of a healthy meal, but one pupil – Zahraa Malik – went one step further by creating an artistic 3D picture of her meal, using dried pasta and coloured squares.

The two schools were triumphant in the public vote and have both now received £2,000 worth of Belling cooking appliances of their choice, including a number of Baby Belling table top cookers, plus some practical cooking accessories.

Bellling head of marketing communications Jane Rylands said: “Only an estimated 25% of primary schools have a teaching kitchen or facilities and we at Belling believe that all children should be able to cook at school. We were delighted with the response to the competition – we received thousands of votes for the ten shortlisted entries and these two schools really stood out.”
