On Friday at assmebly we had special guests - Melville Intermediate were announced as regional finalists in the 2013 Maggi Cook Off Competition. We were very excited to be finalists again (as we were in 2010). We had a excellent presenation at assembly and one of our 2013 team, Mandy from Room Twelve, wrote about the event. Elizabeth from Room Five then conducted a bonus interview with Mandy for this class page.
'The Maggi Kitchen Showdown' is a group of four students who have been choosen to do a Cookoff in a national competition with Maggi and the Erin Simpson show. We got in by coking a bacon and chicken wrap with apricot stuffing, polente bread and balsamic jus'.
