Garden to Table’s Root to Tip cooking competition for year 5 & 6 students is back for 2019, once again supported by Rabobank and endorsed by Love Food Hate Waste.
In 2018 kids all-around New Zealand got creative in the kitchen creating delicious dishes that sharpened their cooking skills while also getting them thinking about reducing food waste.
The competition is being run in much the same way as it was in 2018, with a 2 hour cook time for the kids (to prepare two dishes).
