Does the thought of cooking give your dad kitchen nightmares?
Perhaps a flambé brings him out in a cold sweat – or maybe he finds himself in a pickle when confronted by a mere omelette?
Well, fear not because help is on hand at next week’s Malton Monthly Food Market.
Organisers with the Malton Community Interest Company are offering one “Can’t Cook” dad the chance to overcome his Mageirocophobia (fear of cooking) by joining a live cookery demonstration with well-known chef, Gilly Robinson.
Gilly, who has worked alongside Rosemary Shrager, will be a guest at the monthly market on Saturday December 14, and intends to give the lucky winner some close up hints and tips at one of her four themed demonstrations throughout the day.
Themes include Get Ahead Puddings; Gifts for Christmas; Stuffings and Sauces; and Love your Leftovers – taking place respectively at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm and 2pm.
Tom Naylor-Leyland, organiser of the Food Lovers Market, said: “This is great opportunity for a non-cooking dad to step up to the plate and demo with an experienced chef.
“Malton Monthly Food Market includes the very best in local producers and we should have a bumper market next week. We are delighted to have Gilly join us, and we are looking forward to seeing the ‘Can’t Cook’ dad help in the cookery demonstration.”
Gilly, who will be joined by Roscoe Savage, a student from Ripon Grammar School, said: “I am delighted to be attending the Malton Monthly Food Market next week. The build-up to Christmas is such a busy time for everyone and this is an ideal opportunity to get ahead with some foodie preparation.”
If you think your dad is the worst cook ever, then please send your name and your dad’s name, address, and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org and the winner will be selected at random.
Entrants must be available between 9am and 3pm on Saturday next week.
Deadline for entries is Tuesday December 10.
