Case Study: Ready, Steady, Cook at Glendale Show
National Park Cheviot and Glendale Area Fund - Amount awarded: £2,300
The competition, modelled on the popular television format, was introduced by Tony Gates, the Chief Executive Officer of the Northumberland National Park Authority, who told the audience of how the Authority values and supports local produce.
The contestents were Margaret-Ann Maxwell, local cheese making expert from Doddington Dairy, and former international rugby player Peter Walton, a farmer's son from Glendale whose family ran the Roseden Farm Shop for many years.
Their challenge was to prepare a dish of their choice, within a time limit of 30 minutes, using no more than five ingredients, all of which had to be sourced locally from within the Glendale area! It was a close contest but by popular acclaim it was won by Margaret.
The prize, a luxury hamper of local produce, prepared by The Good Life Shop in Wooler, was provided as part of the sponsorship by the National Park, and presented by Tony Gates.
