The winner will receive a £100 Hinckley Bid gift card to spend in Hinckley town centre when all of the shops open again once the pandemic has blown over.

There shall be will be two runner-up prizes of £50 and there will also be a prize worth £25 that shall be awarded for each of 2 separate entries for the following categories:

  • Most colourful dish on the plate
  • The Winning dish prepared by children aged 11 and under
  • The healthiest dish
  • The most amusing dish

The competition is open to all residents of the Borough of Hinckley and Bosworth.

The judges of the competition shall be the ‘Top Chefs’ from the St Martins Lodge Hotel and Conference Centre in Leicester.

The Hinckley Bid have proposed to collect the best 100 to 200 recipes and print them all together in a booklet.

The booklet will see pictures of the winning dishes with the family surnames next to them, to showcase which families have created the winning dishes.

The booklet will be up for sale with all of the sale proceeds going to a local NHS Staff Relief Fund.

As well as the sum raised, details of the winning creations will also be provided to the Media.
