Home Made Cook of the Year

Are you proud of your skills in the kitchen? Are friends and family always dishing out the compliments after eating your home cooked food? Can you prepare wholesome, nutritious food on a budget?


Well, if the answer is ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, our ‘Home Made Cook of the Year’ competition could be the opportunity to have your kitchen creativity recognised with a national award. Here at ‘Home of the House Proud’, we want to find those ‘Home Made Heroes’ that keep their families bellies full with delicious, wholesome and nutritious food.

In these financially challenging times, families across the country are making cutbacks when it comes to their weekly shop and it’s becoming increasingly tougher to feed the family on a set budget. As well as finding that one person that consistently cooks great food, we’re looking for somebody who can cook a delicious main meal to a set budget, that budget being £7.50. We’ve set the budget of £7.50 to mark our 75th anniversary!

It’s not just the folk here at Morphy HQ that will need impressing with their food; our three short-listed entrants will be invited to the Women’s Institute’s Denman College on 5th December 2011, where they will have the opportunity to meet celebrity chef Brian Turner, ambassador for our prize partner Stoves, and what’s more, cook their dish for him!


The cook that rustles up the food that Brian judges as the best will not only walk away with the prestigious title of ‘Home Made Cook of the Year’, but will also bag themselves a £1,000 Morphy Richards kitchen makeover, a Stoves Mini Range cooker, a Roberts DAB radio and a one day Women’s Institute cooking course for them and a friend – the perfect prize package for any ‘Home Made Hero’!


The two runners up will each win a Morphy Richards cooking product of their choice (up to a retail price of £150), a Roberts DAB radio and a one day Women’s Institute cooking course for them and a friend.

How to Enter…

To enter the ‘Home Made Cook of the Year’, submit your recipe below (including an original photograph of the dish).

The dish must be a main meal, feed a family of four and cost no more than £7.50 to prepare. Although the main meal must cost less than £7.50, ingredients such as salt and pepper (‘seasoning’) don’t have to be included within this cost. When uploading your entry, please state where you heard about the competition at the end of the recipe field and how much your dish cost to prepare.

Each entrant will receive a single use 15% discount code for purchase of any Morphy Richards Worktop Cooking product direct from Morphy Richards.

We’re pleased to have The WI, Delia Online and Diabetes UK supporting ‘Home Made Cook of the Year’. A big thanks also to our prize partners, Stoves, Roberts Radio and Denman College.
