Marys_cooking_compMary entered a cooking competition using her Nan's wartime recipe and she was one of six finalists.

The recipe has been published in Food Glorious Food.

Mary attended the regional heats in September which were held in Devon. She went along supported by all of her family. Caroline, Mary's mum says ' we had to be at the show for 8.30am so it was going to be a long day, we never got to see the judge until the afternoon'.

She really enjoyed taking part and now she would really like to go into catering when she leaves school next year.

Well done Mary...the recipe looks tremendous!
