UK Young Food Writer of the Year announced

Young Food Writer of the Year announced

The Young Food Writer of the Year has been announced by The Guild of Food Writers.

Lidia Fanzo, 17, from Devon, won the 2013 Write It Competition, fighting off stiff competition from many aspiring young food writers.
This annual competition, organised by the Guild of Food Writers, is open to entrants aged up to 18.
Entrants were asked to write a non-fiction feature of around 750 words on any food-related subject.

The judges Elisabeth Luard, Alex Renton and Karen Barnes were unanimous in their verdict on Lidia's piece.
They described the feature as 'well written and clever, with an element of surprise'.
Lidia's prize includes all the books shortlisted for the 2013 Guild of Food Writers Awards.

Her is an extract from her piece: You looked on knowledgeably as my chubby five-year-old fingers creamed butter and sugar with a big wooden spoon, added sticky, runny eggs and white, dusty flour, beat it all together with intense concentration as sticky yellow splodges were flung around the room. You patiently put up with me as I sat before your door waiting for them to cook, opening it frequently and peering in, before I proudly produced my first sunken fairy cakes.
