Shanae Miller, Jillian Goodman and Paige Mann baked up a storm during a Girl Guides cook-off on Sunday.
There was plenty of culinary concentration as Guides from across the region took to the kitchen for a special Masterchef-style bake-off on Sunday.
More than 50 Guides from Katandra West, Undera, Tatura, Mooroopna, Shepparton and South Shepparton worked as teams to create special dishes to be tasted by a judging panel as part of the second annual Val McNab Cook-Off.
Younger groups were given a recipe to follow for their mains and dessert, while the 14-year-old to 17-year-old group was presented with a mystery box-style challenge and asked to create something from the arranged ingredients.
South Shepparton Guide Jillian Goodman, 16, said as a second time competitor, she knew what was expected.
‘‘It was a bit hard, we had to create our own recipe of what to cook and there were certain ingredients we could cook with. It was also judged a bit like the Masterchef competition is,’’ she said.
She said dishes were judged on criteria including flavour, texture, timing, behaviour as a team and hygiene.
Mooroopna Guide Shanae Miller, 7, said the cooking challenge was ‘‘a bit hard’’.
‘‘Our team cooked fruit salad and pizza,’’ she said.
Shepparton Guide Paige Mann, 13, said teams had two-and-a-half hours to create their culinary masterpieces.
She said the challenge was not as hard, as it was her second time entering the bake-off.
Winning teams were presented with a perpetual wooden rolling pin trophy Woodturners of the Goulburn Valley had crafted and each Guide received a participation certificate.
