Following our return from Parksville, Kangaroos, Peewits, and Curlews began to prepare their Masterchef meal to compete for the Greenhalgh Trophy.

Kangaroo Patrol prepared a pâté dish to begin, followed by chicken noodle stir fry and mini key lime pies. One scout described the meal as “over-cooked and cold but a good attempt at a complex set of dishes.” 

Peewits patrol began with an attempt at scallops on bread accompanied by a dash of soya sauce and a helping of garlic paste. They then prepared a unique attempt at a stir fry and a chocolate brownie. One TL commented that the meal was “an ambitious and original set of meals presented in a memorable fashion.” 

Finally Curlews patrol prepared sausages in a honey and mustard dressing, chicken and oven fried potato skewers followed by hand made beef burgers and sweet potato fries and homemade lemon and lime cheesecake. Scouters described the entry as ” nicely presented and rather dry, the burgers were well cooked but could do with more seasoning and the dessert was tasty but poorly presented”.

Overall all three patrols were commended for their efforts.

    I have to say the judges sound extremely harsh (or is it tactical lol)? x
