FOODIE enthusiasts have another 12 days to submit their recipes as Hell’s Kitchen meets Ready Steady Cook at Twelve Restaurant & Lounge Bar.

To celebrate 10 years in business and raise money for Trinity Hospice, Twelve Restaurant & Lounge Bar at Marsh Mill on the Fylde is searching for its very own amateur chefs to go head-to-head in a professional environment.

And to encourage as many individuals as possible to take part, the deadline to submit entries has been extended to October 12th 2010.

Proprietor Chef, Paul Moss said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone enthusiastic about food to cook in a professional kitchen. Each candidate will receive lots of help and support from our staff, and not to mention a Commis chef from Radio Lancashire!

“It should be great fun, and an excellent way to raise money for Trinity Hospice.”

Diners will have their say on who is the best team with a ‘Ready Steady Cook!’ style of voting – orange tangerines or yellow bananas! There will be a live video kitchen link-up and a judging panel of local experts.

Each candidate will also be assigned two chefs from Twelve, as well as a Commis Chef each – BBC Radio Lancashire presenter Sally Naden or BBC Radio Lancashire Producer Alison Brown of the Ted Robbins Show.

The winner will be crowned Twelve’s Kitchen Hero 2010 and will receive a meal for two and Champagne.

To take part: Submit two dishes – a starter and a main course - and the best entries will be chosen based on the composition of the dishes, seasonality, style and use of local produce.

The deadline for submissions (starter and main course) is October 12th 2010, and candidates must be available for the event which will be held on Wednesday 27th October. Entries can be submitted by post to Twelve Restaurant & Lounge Bar or by email info@twelve-restaurant.co.uk. For more information call 01253 821212 or visit http://www.twelve-restaurant.co.uk/
