COOKS, critics, and foodies are descending on the NEC this week for the BBC Good Food Show.
Among those taking part are the Junior MasterChef finalists – including Solihull’s own Hajrah Mehboob.
The 12-year-old made it through to the final four of the recent cookery series. During her stint, she had the chance to cook for boy band JLS, and Doctor Who actor, Matt Smith.
Now she’s competing against her fellow contestants on home turf, rustling up a meal against the clock.
The youngsters will be competing under the eye of MasterChef judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace.
And budding chefs, aged 16 and under, are also being offered a chance to take part in the Invention Test.
The Hairy Bikers and James Martin are among the other culinary wizards taking part in the event – which started on Wednesday.
The Junior MasterChef event will be taking place tomorrow (Saturday), the penultimate day of the show.
If you’d like to test your mettle in the kitchen, call 0844 581 1341, and ask for a place in the Junior Double Invention Test.
