As Patrons of Carlisle Youth Zone (CYZ) we were delighted to be involved in this morning's event in conjunction with Carlisle Foodbank, creating awareness about the need to support local Foodbanks. In these very difficult times for so many this was a great event to make the young people of Carlisle aware of the support that is out there in our community.
Ahead of the event, we consulted with CYZ and the Foodbank regarding ingredients for the day. We were to supply the teams with key ingredients, typical items which are popular donations received at Carlisle Foodbank. We put our heads together and came up with a good list. From the Foodbank - tinned items such as potatoes, peas, sweetcorn, meatballs, hotdogs, pasta, rice, eggs and other staples. From Inter Fresh fresh produce including onions, spring onions, cabbage, mushrooms, tomatoes, cheese & milk.
First thing this morning, the van was loaded up and off Sue went to deliver the produce and get set up for the young people and businesses arrival.
5 incredibly awesome businesses, alongside the young people went head to head in a Ready, Steady Cook! style competition.
Kingmoor Park, RAW Insurance Brokers Ltd, David Allen, Armstrong Watson and Handelsbanken all took to their cooking stations, Chefs hats and aprons on, hands washed, and at 11am the event began - 20 minutes on the clock..... in 3,2,1, Ready, Steady COOK!
The contents of the Foodbank supplies were revealed and the fresh produce pantry was open. Menus were quickly discussed between each team, various tins and packets were opened and veggies were chopped up.
20 minutes soon passed and the challenge was completed. Then it was time for the scoring. Presentation / creativity / taste and extra points for nutritional value and even more points if all ingredients were used in the dishes.

Hi I'm Sue, Sales Manager for Inter Fresh. When I'm not meeting with clients and chefs at our spectacular local eateries, I enjoy walking with my dog and friends in this wonderful part of the country. We really are spoilt for choice where we live and work! If not out walking you’ll find me in the gym, pub or out for a good meal! My background is primarily in sales, very much hospitality based, so have a great understanding of what’s needed from us at Inter Fresh as your supplier. High quality produce and fresh ingredients are of paramount importance to me for my customers, aswell as great delivery and excellent customer service. My personal favourites have to be cauliflower (cheese of course!) and fruit would have to be watermelon or pineapple – preferably in a cocktail!
