Garden Centre Group backs Love British Food fortnight

Garden Centre Group garden centres are celebrating Love British Food fortnight from July 27 to August 12 by launching a recipe competition to win dinner for eight.

The Garden Centre Group has set a challenge for people to come up with their very own British recipe. A chef will recreate the best recipe for the winner and seven of their friends to enjoy in one of the garden centres’ restaurants and the dish will feature on the menu in all of the group’s restaurants.

The menu includes fish and chips, lemon chicken, baked Scottish salmon, Brie and spinach flan, and ham, egg and chips. Chocolate mousse, lemon posset and raspberry bakewell are some of the desserts that will be available. Prices per main meal start from £6.95 with puddings priced at £3.45. The competitions will run at the 95 garden centres in the Group that have a restaurant.

There will be one winner and 12 runners-up, who will receive a lunch for two at their nearest garden centre.

Children have also been challenged with a task to draw the best cake decoration and the winner will be given a picnic for them and 20 of their friends.

As an official partner of Love British Food, Garden Centre Group’s restaurant will also be serving dishes made with UK sourced ingredients.

Entries for both competitions must be handed in to the centre by 4.30pm on Friday, August 31.
