Knowsley SL Come Dine With Me Competition


participantws sample one of the dessertsWe are delighted to announce that on 12th December 2013, Knowsley Supported Lodgings’ resident Jodie Wright was the overall winner of the Come Dine with Me Competition. 

She was closely followed by runner up Ian Healey, who was just one point behind. A total of nine young people supported by the project took part in the competition this year.  They were split into two groups, with each person cooking a three course meal for everyone in their group for £20 – which was quite a challenge! 

The quality of the food was exceptional and the young people involved developed their confidence as well as their cooking and money-managing skills.

This year, two of the young people hosted evenings in their own flats.  This was a great talking point for many of the other young people looking to move on in the near future.  

We wish to congratulate both Jodie and Ian for their achievements.  The winning menu comprised tomato and basil soup, roast turkey with all the trimmings followed by chocolate and Baileys mousse! 

In the New Year, Jodie will cook again in a regional final against the winners from Local Solutions’ other Supported Lodgings projects.

With particular thanks to Your Housing Group for sponsoring the event and to Eddy Weston, their Community Project Officer for being one of the judges for the finals.
