SHC Proud to Sponsor Kent Cooks’ 2017

Following on from a hugely successful Kent Cooks’ Competition in 2016, Suzanne Howe Communications (SHC) is proud to once again be a key partner for the MasterChef style cooking competition.

Suzanne Howe, founder and Managing Director of SHC said: “It was such a pleasure to be on the judging panel last year and I was so impressed with the calibre of contestants. It was great to see local businesses coming together to support young people’s talents and I can’t wait to be involved in this year’s competition.”

SHC specialise in the food industry which makes this the perfect opportunity to support a local event and encourage budding young chefs in the space that the PR and marketing company have called home for over 20 years.

Sponsoring this culinary event reflects Suzanne and the team at SHC’s continued passion and commitment to all things food. With a strong portfolio of clients in the food and packaging industries, SHC’s sponsorship of the competition brings a balance of passion for PR as well as food.

Once again the competition is divided into three categories – primary, secondary and family. Contestants are encouraged to use local ingredients and stick to a fixed budget. Budding young chefs between 6 and 19 years are encouraged to enter Kent Cooks and the 13 finalists will be invited to cook their dish for a VIP panel at the live final at the end of November at East Kent College in Broadstairs.

Last year saw Suzanne help crown the winner of the family category, where 3 families competed for the top spot. Eight year old Lucy wowed the judges with her posh cheese on toast and apple pie with homemade bread and butter ice cream. Take a look at the official event photo gallery and official event video from last years’ competition.

Preparations and applications for Kent Cooks 2017 are well underway and parents or teachers are invited to complete the simple online entry form at on the child’s behalf by Tuesday 7th November.
