Lyle's Golden Syrup Sponsors National Culinary Competition

| Filed in:
TV Chef and restaurateur Gary Rhodes visited St Margaret’s School, Exeter on November 8th to award the school First Prize in a national culinary competition sponsored by Lyle’s Golden Syrup. The competition featured on the website as part of an educational campaign. Schools from around the UK entered, but it was St Margaret’s enthusiasm, initiative and use of ideas that made them stand out from the rest. The winning team of girls was awarded £1,000 worth of computer equipment and a certificate. A presentation was made to the Headmistress Mrs Maureen D’Albertanson and the winning team at the school. Gary Rhodes was also invited to open the new Home Economics department and unveil a plaque. 'We were thrilled that St Margaret’s won as they were enthusiastic and submitted excellent work,' explains Gary. 'To participate, the children were asked to devise their own menu for a three-course meal which had to be nutritionally balanced, tasty and properly costed. They were credited for their own recipe creations and for reflecting their local cuisine – both of which St Margaret’s did very well with local dishes such as Scrumpy Snorkers with Cider Sauce featuring in their menu.' The site is part of a children’s cooks club called Cook with Lyle, which encourages children to learn to cook from an early age. Free educational materials are available to schools on the site, which are referenced to Key Stages 1 & 2 of the National Curriculum and can be printed off by teachers and used in class.
