Farmhouse Kitchen Awards presented at Scottish Borders Council Headquarters.

Pupils from Berwickshire schools were recently presented with prizes at Scottish Borders Council headquarters for their winning entries in the RHET (Royal Highland Education Trust) Scottish Borders Farmhouse Breakfast Competition. Pupils were asked to create a Scottish breakfast menu for visitors from another country. The younger pupils created excellent artwork depicting the sort of Scottish food they would like to serve to their visiting classmates, and older pupils devised some wonderful menus for their guests using local foods to enhance them. Jennifer Dodds, RHET Scottish Borders director, said: “The quantity and quality of the entries made judging very difficult.”

The local finalists chosen were Eyemouth Primary School (P3 and P3/4), Westruther Primary School (P4-7) and Chirnside Primary School (P4, P6). Winners were awarded a £50 book token for their school and will have a healthy farmhouse breakfast cooked for them at school by RHET volunteers. Prizes are funded by SBC.
