THE Zone Youth Club is hosting a Ready Steady Cook challenge.

On June 3, 10 and 17 The Zone is asking teams of young people to take part in a three week cooking programme.

Each group will be given a budget and will be asked to plan, buy and cook a dish. All dishes will be judged and the top dishes will be entered into a bake off on July 1.

Jonathan Smith, volunteer at The Zone, said: “The aim is to encourage young people to have a go at cooking, learn skills such as planning, budgeting, shopping and cooking and to experiment with food and have fun.

“We are also offering free spaces to young people to gain a level 2 Food and Hygiene qualification which is completed online.

“Thanks to 02Think Big we are able to offer sessions like these for young people to learn valuable new skills.”

If you would like take part please contact either Andrea White or Jonathan Smith on 01278 722100 or or
