Great Scottish Schools Bake Off Listen to what the Great Scottish Schools Bake Off is all about

In September 2013 Chefs@school, the Cooking Bus and Education Scotland are challenging learners across Scotland to form baking teams and enter the Great Scottish Schools Bake Off!

Glow TV will broadcast live Chefs@School boarding the Cooking Bus at four different locations across Scotland to demonstrate a variety of baking techniques using local, seasonal produce to help you create and serve a delicious afternoon tea to help raise money to support others in your community.

You will have the opportunity to improve your understanding and skills in measurement, nutrition, food hygiene and how to manage your finances to ensure your bake off is profitable.
