The Berry Best of Surbiton Cookery Challenge

Do you enjoy fooling around with gooseberries? Can you make ripples with raspberries?

It's time once again for our summer cookery contest and this year we’re asking you to come up with a dish using your favourite berries.

It could be a soft and gooey mixed berry pavlova, classic blueberry muffins, blackberry cheesecake or a delicious loganberry crumble. Or go for something savoury. How about pork and cranberry terrine, berry glazed salmon or a summery strawberry and asparagus quiche.

Once you’ve produced your incredible edible bring it along to the special competition stalls in front of The Antelope pub on Maple Road on Saturday 16 June before 10.30 am. Winners will be announced at midday and awards handed out shortly afterwards.

There will be three categories — amateurs, professionals and children under 12 — with prizes in each case for the winner and runner-up.

Are you up to the challenge? Then the berry best of luck!
