The Love your Greens campaign, run by the Brassica Grower's Foundation, has launched a competition for budding chefs to design a recipe with a Brassica vegetable as the star ingredient.
"The Love Your Greens campaign is all about engaging with kids, getting them excited about cooking from scratch and educating them on how healthy and versatile Brassica vegetables are." - Aaron Craze
Love Your Greens has teamed up with celebrity chef and Jamie Oliver’s protégée, Aaron Craze. Together, they’re on the look out for some brilliant Brassica recipes so if you want to get creative with a cabbage or show off with your swedes, this is the competition for you.
Brassica vegetables are incredibly versatile, and the competition judges will be seeking out the best original, creative and nutritious recipes. The top ten recipes from each age category will be published in a Love Your Greens recipe book in 2016 – the first step on the road to becoming a superstar chef. The top recipes from each age category will also receive a tablet device and £300 for their school.
FACE is delighted to support this campaign and has worked withe the BGA to develop a comprehensive teacher's resource pack, filled with not only recipes, but a range of cross curriculum teaching activities.
Just visit the website www.loveyourgreens.co.uk/schools to download the teacher pack and to enter the competition by submitting a recipe and a photo of the finished dish!
