Expect a serious showdown in the outdoor kitchen when the students of St Andrews Anglican College take on Maroochydore State High School at 10am next Wednesday 7 September in the Market Chef Grand Final.

Launched this year, the Market Chef competition has seen students from high schools across the Sunshine Coast battle it out in heats each Wednesday throughout Terms 2 and 3.

The weekly MARKET CHEF battles have been hosted by chef Peter Wolfe, renowned for his kitchen wizardry, and for his recipes incorporating bush foods and organic ingredients.

“The competition has really challenged the students each week, as they’ve only been told the name of the dish prior to each week’s cook-off – not the actual recipe,” Peter says. “They haven’t seen the ingredients nor recipe until they’ve arrived for the competition to cook”

“The same will apply in the grand final, however the finalists will not even know the name of the dish in advance,” he says. “It’ll all be a surprise until they arrive on the day”.

“As with all recipes cooked this year during Market Chef, the grand final recipe will incorporate fresh produce and ingredients from local growers and suppliers available at Eumundi Markets.

The winning team will take home the magnificent Market Chef trophy; a $500 market voucher (to be spent on the wealth of local produce and cooking ingredients available each week at Eumundi Markets), as well as a Market Chef cooking class at the winning school.  

The schools that competed in MARKET CHEF 2011 have been Immanuel Lutheran College; Peregian Beach College; St Theresa’s Catholic College; Burnside State High School; Maroochydore State High School; Sunshine Beach High School and St Andrews Anglican College.

Recipes from MARKET CHEF each week are available online.
