Dairy Council Northern Ireland

Milk it for all it's worth

Key stage 3 + 4

Foreword from chair of judges

By Glynis Henderson, Council for the Curriculum Examinations and Assessment (CCEA), and Chairperson of the Judges of Young Cook of the Year

At a time when convenience foods continue to dominate our supermarket shelves, it is essential that young people develop the practical cooking skills they need to make healthy, nutritious meals.

The Young Cook of the Year Competition is open to Key Stage 3, 4 and Special Education pupils. It provides an excellent opportunity for keen young cooks across Northern Ireland to develop their culinary skills, and understand the benefits that come with using high quality, locally produced ingredients in their dishes.

As diet and health remain at the forefront of public debate, the competition is also an excellent means of encouraging young people to apply their knowledge of a healthy balanced diet, with the inclusion of dairy products, when making food choices.

CCEA is delighted to be involved in the Young Cook of the Year. Now in its nineteenth year, the competition continues to be an extremely successful, enjoyable and valuable experience for all participants. We believe that the competition can go a long way towards promoting life–long cooking skills among young people in Northern Ireland.
