IF YOU'RE young and looking for challenge this summer holiday, then there is still time to enter the Huntingdonshire Junior Chef competition.

Sponsored by Anglian Water, the competition is part of Huntingdonshire Food and Drink Festival which takes place in September.

The competition, which is being run by Huntingdonshire District Council together with The Hunts Post is open to school children aged 11 to 14.

The rules are simple: We want our young chefs to create a two-course menu (courses should be a main and a dessert) using local ingredients and tell us all about it. The slightly trickier part is that the suggested menu will have to cost no more than £10, will need to feed two people, and will have to be nutritious.

The chefs will need to name their dishes, list all the ingredients, give some costings and send it to the address below.

Each entry will be judged on its originality, use of local ingredients and, of course, price.

The top chefs will then make it through to the real test: the cooking. And this is where they will need to impress the judges not only with their tasty dishes, but by also taking in consideration hygiene, creativity and presentation.

The top junior chef will win the chance to have their menu prepared for them and their family by a professional chef at one of the district's top restaurants, The Old Bridge in Huntingdon.

INFORMATION: Send you entry to Junior Chef Competition, The Hunts Post, 30 High Street, Huntingdon PE29 3TB by August 10.
