Cook up a dish to be crowned Top Tooting Cook!

Win tasty prizes by cooking a dish made with locally grown produce and you could also be crowned Tooting's Top Cook!

Are you a budding chef? Do you fancy cooking a delicious low-food miles vegetarian dish?


Enter the Top Tooting Cook competition and you could win dinner for two at The Little Taperia or a £50 food voucher for the Wheatsheaf!

All you need to do is:

  • Cook one dish made with some locally grown produce
  • Deliver it to Foodival's Festival day at Samaj Hall by 1.30pm for judging
And that's it! Anything goes... you could bake, cook, assemble, pickle, or blend your dish. As long as it's vegetarian and some of the ingredients are locally grown, you can enter.

Don't worry if you don't grow any produce. Pop into Foodival's Donation Day on Saturday 12th September (1pm-4pm) at Mushkil Aasaan, 220-222 Upper Tooting Road and choose some locally grown ingredients to cook with.

But what does it take to win?

  • The judges will be a local panel of cooks and foodies
  • 50% of marks for how local the dish is
  • 50% of marks for taste

Or enter on the day by bringing your dish for 1.30pm on Sunday, 13th September.
