The deadline for registration has now been extended by an extra two weeks, until March 31st.
Sarah Robb, channel marketing manager at Premier Foods, said: “We are thrilled this competition has excited caterers for the third year running and it is great to see so many schools keen to get involved.
“We are extending the deadline for registration to give caterers a little more time to get their teams together and would urge anyone that wants to take part to register now, before it’s too late.”
To make it to the live final, which takes place in July at LACA’s Main Event, teams must create one sweet and one savoury recipe, meeting the ‘local ingredient’ theme. The recipes will be judged by a panel of judges including representatives from LACA, the Craft Guild of Chefs and Premier Foods.
