The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts who came along to Marie Thomson's 'Mearns Masterchef' fundraiser on Thursday were delighted when Cub leader Dave McGinlay served up a win for the Sausage Sizzlers.
Marie, of the 'What's for tea tonight?' farm shop, offered to organise the event to benefit Laurencekirk Scout Group, Laurencekirk Guides, Laurencekirk Primary and Marykirk Primary. With the assistance of her sister, cook Joan Crichton, and their uncle Gordon Law as compere, the four novice chefs representing each group demonstrated a variety of simple and tasty dishes you can make using local produce.
Cubs, Scouts and Guides enjoyed showing the 120 guests to their seats and serving them refreshments. The audience took the chance to buy a cookbook Marie had put together with the help of local people and business sponsorship to aid Cancer Research UK. Copies are available for £5 each.
