Funky Chunky Chicken Soup

Funky Chunky Chicken Soup

Bythams Primary were the winners of the first Kids Country “Country Soup Challenge”. A number of short-listed schools visited the Showground’s professional kitchens where our chefs helped the children produce soup designed by them.
The three finalists had their soups on sale at the Smithfield Festival and the most popular soup won a team trophy and book vouchers for the children. They really had worked hard to think through ways of designing and promoting an original soup.
One of our regular school supporters commented “thank you once again for another fabulous event. We all really enjoyed it and we all (including staff) learned something. Thank all your helpers again because the organisation was first class.”
