2011 Winners

The finals saw us hold a series of cook-offs around the country in November. Celebrity chef James Martin and Red Tractor beef and lamb Food Advisor Denise Spencer-Walker sampled and judged the 47 shortlisted recipes over three days, selecting a regional champion for each area representing the Northeast, Northwest, Midlands, Southwest, London and the South East and East of England.

The shortlisted recipes were submitted by students aged 11-16, using either beef or lamb mince. James and Denise judged the recipes marking them on presentation, taste, originality and nutrition and awarded a winner from each heat.

The standard of recipes entered this year was higher than ever. Browse the winning recipes chosen by James and Denise and see step-by-step instructions for creating them at home by clicking on the links below...
