Summer cook-off challenge - cook-along with Kate and Max

The Summer cook-off challenge has been helping to get families cooking together this summer, keeping kids entertained, encouraging healthier eating habits and new cooking skills, as well as providing tips on how to make the food budget go further.While any family can join in, those facing financial challenges have been helped with deliveries of food boxes containing recipe cards and all the ingredients needed to prepare five family meals.

The challenge is part of Wirral’s summer food support programme and is being co-ordinated on behalf of the council by local charity Neo Community and it has been made possible by a Covid Local Support Grant from the Department for Work and Pensions.

Videos of families preparing their dishes are being posted online, including Kate and her son Max preparing a delicious Italian-style sausage and mushroom with spaghetti, as well as a veggie stir-fry:
