A budding young chef has won Junior Compassionate Cook!
Twelve-year-old Milo Larcombe, from Brighton, scooped the ‘Judges’ Choice’ award with his entertaining Pokémon themed video of how to make ‘Chilli Chocolate Muffins’ using RSPCA Assured labelled eggs.
Judge and BBC One Celebrity Masterchef finalist, Liz McClarnon, said: “Milo is bursting with personality, he is definitely a TV chef in the making. He was funny to watch and quite clearly enjoys cooking.”
Andi Peters, also a judge and BBC One Celebrity Masterchef runner up, said: “Wow – what an energetic performance and lovely that Milo talked about using eggs from hens that have been really well looked after. I think he is a great winner of the RSPCA Assured Junior Compassionate Cook.”
The winning formula
Milo said: “When my Home Economics teacher told me about the competition, I thought it would be fun to do, especially as I love to bake. I never even thought about winning, and yet here I am. I am so pleased to be the winner.”
Milo added: “RSPCA Assured products are definitely worth buying, as it means farm animals are treated well and have a good life. So remember, next time you go shopping, look for the RSPCA Assured logo.”
Lucky Milo won an iPad mini 2 and a trophy. The four runners up each received a medal.
All winners also received a set of cookware for themselves and their school and a year’s subscription to the RSPCA’s Animal Action magazine.
