Lockdown Cooks

Cooking Competition

Peebles based social enterprise You Can Cook will be running a cooking competition and will be open to all residents of the Scottish Borders. The idea is simple; since we are all in lockdown mode, what better way to  pass the time by using our creativity and unlocking our true potential to cook and bake some truly delicious food!  This is the time we hope all residents including families getting together with children to adults living on their own, take time to come up with a dish that truly inspires them. Participants will be able to choose any one of the categories below and is open to one entry per household only. This is to give everyone a fair shot at the competition.

One winner from each category will be selected and all winners will get a signed copy of the You Can Grow book and You Can Cook premium cotton T-shirt.
