Eggs Factor Competition - Kids in the Kitchen Final Call!

I'm now getting to hear about lots of competitions and here is a great one, but the closing date is 5 May 2009, so you have to hurry if you want your kids to enter. Kids have to be aged 7-11 years but the prize is fantastic!

British Lion eggs are embarking on a star-studded nationwide search for children with the ‘Eggs Factor’.

The young chefs who make it to the final of the cooking competition will meet X Factor finalists Same Difference, who are hosting the event alongside children’s food eggspert Annabel Karmel.

Budding Nigellas and Jamies between the ages of seven and 11 can enter the competition by uploading an eggy recipe inspired by their favourite character or celebrity at

Six finalists will be chosen to compete in 12 regional cook-offs during June, judged by top chefs from all over Britain. The young chefs with the most imaginative and tasty recipes will meet Same Difference at the national final in London on 6 July and take home a Nintendo DS console along with a Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What to Eat? game.

The national Eggs Factor champion will be treated to a special culinary weekend in London, including an afternoon at the research kitchen where Annabel Karmel develops her recipes. The winning recipe will also be published in one of Karmel’s forthcoming cookbooks.

The competition is open for entries until 5 May 2009.

So what are you waiting for? Get cracking!
Luckily we have the Bank Holiday, so there is still enough time to think up that great recipe idea and submit it. Fingers crossed!
So you know what we will be doing this weekend? A spot of cooking to see if we are in with a chance! Maybe a spot of gardening if the weather is good.
