Ready Steady Cook 2015

On Saturday 7th March, 7 teams entered the annual Ready Steady Cooking Competition at 4th Worths Scout HQ. Three teams entered from 2nd Ifield, one from 5th Crawley, one from 4th Worth and two from 1st Northgate. The teams were judged on a number of criteria including preparation, health and safety, creativity, teamwork, presentation and quality.

The quality of the food was excellent and all of the teams worked very well together reflecting the number of practises that had been held before the event. The menus from each team are provided below.
