Young chefs and amateur cooks across Fife are being given a challenge…. As part of Scotland’s first national Festival of Museums, the Scottish Fisheries Museum is inviting aspiring chefs to contribute to A Gastronomic Gallimaufray of Fife, a celebration of Fife’s food and drink.

The Scottish Fisheries Museum is setting young and aspiring chefs across Fife a Fife Food Challenge. The chefs will be asked to prepare dishes using food produced within the region or traditional local recipes.

Selected contestants will prepare the food for a buffet evening to be held at the Museum on Saturday 14th May.  Each will present their recipes to a panel of expert judges. Guests at the buffet will be able to sample the food and vote on their favourites.  Also present will be the food producers who will be able to explain to both chefs and guests how their food is produced.

The competition is being co-ordinated by Christopher Trotter and is open to young people aged 16 – 25.  The closing date for entries is 29 April with recipes to be finalised by 6 May.  Full competition rules are available from Christopher Trotter (ct@christophertrotter.co.uk, 01333 360219) or on the Scottish Fisheries Museum website (www.scotfishmuseum.org/events).
