As well as helping to judge the Cambridge Bake Off (starting this weekend, very exciting!) I have also been asked to judge a "Masterchef" style competition as a fundraiser event for Papworth Trust with John Lewis in June, I'm so excited to be asked to help, so of course I said that I would be thrilled to. You, my lovely readers, are also invited to come along and try some gourmet food at a great ticket price, so why not book a ticket and support this great food event? The night is going to involve three teams of Papworth Trust disabled adults learning to cook a two course meal – three chefs from John Lewis will head up and train each team. The teams are all learning to cook with their chef this month and on the evening of Wednesday 5 June they will come together and have a 'cook off'. Tickets are just £15 each for people to come along and have a taster plate; a bit of each of the three meals cooked. The judges will be sat at a separate table (5 judges in total) who will try all of the meals and give them a score. Some feedback will be given by one/all of the judges to the diners/teams at the end of the evening with a winning team given a cup. Date Wednesday 5 June Time 6:15pm – 8pm Venue John Lewis Brasserie, Grand Arcade, 10 Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3DS Tickets are only £15 (£18 with a glass of wine), with a discount for tables of six. The price of a ticket includes a generous sampling of each of the menus, a chance to influence the decision of the judging panel, and free entry into a prize draw. Tickets are available from the Customer Service department in John Lewis Cambridge. For more information, please call 01223 224 633 or email Marketing_Cambridge@johnlewis.co.uk. All proceeds will be donated to Papworth Trust, a disability charity which supports people to live more independent lives. And the 3 menus for the John Lewis Gourmet Challenge are...

I pay for my own food, drink, services & products, I don't tell the establishment or suppliers what I'm doing, unless I enjoy it so much that I want to blog about it. I then simply ask their permission to do so and I chat to them about my experience to make them aware that I (and others) have enjoyed it : ) If you would like to discuss my independent reviews or blog write ups on any of the subjects on my blog, please do email Hello@MissSueFlay.com for a chat.
