At Wyke Farms we believe cooking with the family is a really special thing. It’s about learning, using quality ingredients and most importantly having fun. I certainly have fond memories of making cheese with my grandmother as a young boy, I cook regularly with my children, and I am very proud that Ivy’s recipe is being sold to Tesco and across the world today.
Last week I was lucky enough to be Head Judge at the Bristol’s Cheesy Bake Off Final held at Bristol of City College, where three very talented young bakers baked their socks off for the chance to win £5,000 worth of cooking equipment for their school.
The Cheesy Bake Off initiative gave children and their families and/or school teachers the chance to get together and create something different with our Cheddar. As a Tesco supplier Wyke Farms are keen to educate and help young children understand where their food comes from and want to encourage children to think about the locally sourced ingredients that are available in the retailer’s stores in the South West.
Tesco’s Eat Happy ‘Farm to Fork’ project supported by Wyke Farms had been the reason our star baker and chosen winner, Mollie Philips was keen to bake using our Cheddar and send in her recipe for a chance to win cooking equipment for her school. From learning about how we make our cheese, she was able to go home and learn how to cook, creating delicious muffins for all her family and friends whilst most importantly having fun.
You can find out how to make Mollie’s winning After-School Muffins and watch the live final unfold here.
A final well done goes to our two finalists: Ines and Libby.
