Give Me Fives in the KitchenMasterchef week…..enough to make anybody shiver and nervously twist their apron strings…..arrived at our MRPS kitchen recently.  Our journalists Emma and Lilli tell us more.  Mrs Veary

Last Wednesday was competition time for T3 with our big Masterchef Bake-Off. To start the session, Mel showed us what we would be cooking with and then we set out to start baking – Lemon Slice!

We went to our groups and decided who would be leader and who would be reader.  We all had the same recipe to follow, but we had to double all the ingredients, which was challenging – and we had the pressure of a time limit.

Ellie and Mel were the Masterchef Judges.  They were judging the Lemon Slice dishes on: taste, presentation and texture.
