'Minimising Food Wastage' UCB student competition 2015

Read time: approx 1 mins

UCB is calling for students across the university to showcase their culinary creativity by utilising stale or leftover bread in delicious dishes – therefore minimising food wastage by participating in this this new cookery competition. 

This competition will support the Love Food Hate Waste campaign launched this week (in partnership with Central England Co-operative) and aims to increase awareness of the huge amount of sliced bread that goes to waste every single day in homes in the UK. 

In order to enter the challenge, you must a compile a recipe for a dish (savoury or sweet) that is at least 70% of bread. 

The first stage of the competition is paper-based and recipes must be word-processed and professionally presented. 

When selecting entries to take through the final cook-off, judges will be looking for creative flair, originality and attention to detail. This is a perfect opportunity to demonstrate your culinary talent and technical skills whilst considering colour, texture, flavour and aroma. 

The participants with the best proposed recipes will be invited to cook their dishes in the UCB kitchens in December. All ingredients, cooking equipment and utensils will be provided by the university. 

This competition is open to all UCB students, whether they are studying at college level, undergraduate or postgraduate. So, if you think you have what it takes to impress the judges, come and show us your techniques. 

The winners of this competition will receive sponsored prices (to be confirmed shortly). 

The closing date for all written entries is Monday 2 November 2015. Please email your entry form and recipe to All successful applicants will be notified by Monday 13 November 2015 and invited to the final cook-off on Friday 4 December 2015
