Lincat launches ‘feel-good’ art competition for young chefs

Written by: Edward Waddell
Lincat has launched a ‘feel-good’ art competition for children of those in the catering and hospitality industries.

Children are being encouraged to draw a picture of their favourite snack, cake or dessert that they enjoy making. Parents should send the picture along with the recipe and the child’s age to Lincat- who will share the drawings on social media.

There are four age categories for the competition: aged four and under, five-seven, eight to 11 and 12+. The best drawings from each age category will receive a £15 Amazon voucher.

Helen Applewhite, marketing manager at Lincat, said: “With the recent closure of schools and catering outlets, we wanted to do something as a show of support to our industry, and to help parents keep their children entertained over the next few weeks.

“As many of us cook and bake regularly with our children, we thought it would be a good idea to run a little culinary competition for our chefs of the future.

“We will showcase everyone’s hard work on Lincat’s website as well as social media channels and recipes will be shared, so parents can give some tried and tested dishes a go.”

To enter:

  • Ask your child for their favourite recipe – sweet or savoury.
  • Ask them to draw a picture of the finished product.
  • Take a picture of their drawing and email, along with the recipe and your child’s age, to helen.applewhite@lincat.co.uk.
  • Closing date Tuesday 31st March 2020.
