Competition linking food with agriculture
THE NEW ZEALAND High Commission and Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS) are teaming up to change Barbadians’ approach to agriculture via their Agriculture is Food Cooking Competition.
Under the patronage of Caribbean Cuizine host chef Peter Edey, the two organisations will host the event on November 28 at the Dining Club, Newton, Christ Church.
Students from secondary schools across the island will compete by adding a Barbadian flair to New Zealander products.
New Zealand High Commissioner Jan Henderson explained that in New Zealand, agriculture was taken very seriously and it was her hope that this attitude could be adopted by Barbadians through this event.
These sentiments were echoed by RCS second vice-chairman and event coordinator Claire Durant.
“We want to let the public know and we want to remind students that agriculture is an excellent area you can be involved in as your career,” she said. (AD)
