Inspired by Master Chef, Moama’s Southern Cross Apartment residents were put through their paces in a cooking challenge last week.
After lengthy discussion and a little debate about the best way to bake scones 17 contestants donned chefs hats trying to whip up the best batch.
Residents, staff and volunteers had a set amount of time to cook either sweet, savoury or plain scones.
Irene Bramley won the savory category, while Annie Anderson took out the sweet and Margot Oliver delivered the best plain scone.
Lifestyle co-ordinator Debbie Bennett said it was interesting to watch the residents use their own recipes and use a variety of ingredients.
‘‘Everyone has their own way and own recipes, which is why we decided to have our own little Master Chef,’’ she said.
‘‘Today we read cookbooks, watch cooking shows and see things before we try to cook them whereas a lot of the residents learned their skills and recipes from their mothers or from just cooking.
‘‘They didn’t even need to measure the ingredients, they just threw it in because they know it so well.’’
Moama CWA member Joan Milgate and Moama’s St James Anglican priest Wayne Sheehan watched on before deciding the winners.
Judges were strict in their search for the perfect shaped, fluffy, coloured and tasting scone.
Ms Bennett said another cooking competition may be on the cards for next year as this year residents, volunteers and staff enjoyed a great day and an amazing afternoon tea.
