Scottish pupils to compete on Commonwealth Burger

Scottish pupils have been invited to create a special burger for the Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow this summer

Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) has spearheaded the campaign to get Scotland’s S1-S3 pupils to create a Commonwealth Burger using Scotch Beef and Lamb and Specially Selected Pork. The burger recipe should aim to reflect the Commonwealth Games in its creativity and flavour combinations.

Finalists will present their burgers at the Royal Highland Show this June, where the winning recipe will be announced. The Scotch Butchers Club has teamed up with QMS to allow butchers to showcase the burger in their shops prior to the games.

Jennifer Robertson, health and education coordinator at QMS, said: “This is a fantastic way to inspire pupils to get involved in the excitement around the Commonwealth Games and build their awareness of the importance of cooking healthy meals from scratch. To have their winning recipe available for sale in butchers the length and breadth of the country is such an incredible opportunity for our budding young chefs in schools around the country.”
