The winner of the 2017 Big School Bake Off, Dawn Twemlow, recently welcomed the Let’s Get Cooking team to her school, Intake Primary in Doncaster, as part of her prize.

Two groups of 12 children from the school were treated to sessions that helped them prepare and cook pasta dishes and fruit crumbles.

The sessions were led by Liz Short and Jill Tiryaki from the Children’s Food Trust in what was the last Let’s Get Cooking organised by the trust before the scheme was taken over by the British Dietetic Association (BDA).

The children were taken through hygiene, knife handling skills, identifying and preparing fruit and vegetables.

Then they worked at large electric frying pans to sauté vegetables, add sauces and a choice of pre-cooked protein in the form of chicken breast, bacon and tuna before the final addition of pre-cooked pasta.

They took it in turns to stir through the different recipes before the food was served up and tasted.

When they sat down to eat all the children admitted they had tried at least one new ingredient on the day.

Joining Dawn and CFT pair Liz and Jill were Sue Kellie from the BDA and Dan Curtis, Claire Oldfield and Sara Exley from Dolce, the contract catering company that feeds the Intake children and is Dawn’s employer.

Big School Bake Off, a competition run by Unilever Foodservice, demands school chefs create a cake of their own recipe in which at least half the ingredients by weight comprises fruit.

Dawn’s Summer Sunshine Pudding won her this year’s title, when the final took place at the Main Event in July.

As winner she took home £500 of Love2Shop vouchers, a trophy and a Let’s Get Cooking session for children at her school. There was a further prize of £100 Love2Shop vouchers added by competition supporter Hobart.
