Britain's Best Pud
Got a failsafe family pud or dinner party dessert recipe? Enter the competition and it could be judged Britain's Best Pud.
Good Food Channel has teamed up with Good Food magazine to launch a nationwide competition to find Britain's Best Pud recipe. Three winners can expect a fabulous trophy, along with Magimix kitchen gadgets, plus a chance to see their finished pudding on Good Food's Market Kitchen. They will also be invited to the BBC Good Food Show in November for a memorable prize presentation.
From party pavlovas to sweetly spiced pies, cheesecakes to syrupy sponges, we're looking for original and creative recipes that celebrate our country's love for rounding off marvellous meals with a flourish.
There are three age categories: under 12 years, 12-17 years and adults. Entries will be whittled down by an expert selection and judging panel, including TV chefs Rachel Allen and Bill Granger, with one overall winner in each age group. Those entering in the under 12 years and 12-17 years categories will need parental or guardian consent to participate in the competition and agree to the terms and conditions. All entrants should be a UK resident. As this is a nationwide competition, we're keen to have recipes from all 10 regions in the UK: East Anglia, London, Midlands, North East, North West, Northern Ireland, Scotland, South East, South West and Wales. A shortlist of 30 finalist recipes will be selected after the closing date: one recipe per age category from each of the 10 regions.
We're looking for recipes that closely meet our set criteria. Please remember to read the full criteria on goodfoodchannel.co.uk before your entry is submitted:
A recipe that is your own creation
A recipe that exhibits creativity and innovation
An easy-to-follow method and accurate measurements
Recipes from amateur cooks and not professional chefs
For this competition, our definition of pudding is a broad one and does include desserts: a sweet dish that rounds off your meal. You can enter the competition by uploading your recipe to goodfoodchannel.co.uk. You'll need to give your recipe a title, short description, ingredients list and step-by-step method. Photographs help bring a recipe to life so if you can, upload a photo. Please note, your photograph will not affect the judging process. Closing date for entries is 12 midnight, 14 June 2010.
