I was invited to judge a Hartlepool schools competition which involved Expochef and six finalist teams. The kids had to research and then market a new food product. The offering ranged from fruity smoothies, fishcakes to stir-fries and healthy yoghurts.

The enthusiasm shown by the schoolchildren was infectious. All had meticulously researched the ingredients, the packaging and various forms of marketing.

I was one of a few chosen "dragons" whose arduous task was to choose the winning team after the presentation and a thorough "grilling".

The initiative was well supported by the town's Mayor, Stuart Drummond.

Les chefs en herbe !
Avec eux, on va de surprises en surprises.
Les inventions et les découvertes jaillissent toujours de l'expérience.

Ils étaient bien préparés, avec des vidéos, des posters, un emballage tres recherché...

It's always difficult judging anything to do with children but they have to learn about competition sometime.

It was very hard to judge because the standard was so high.
