This year's Explorer Scout Stockdale competition was a cooking competition and as in past years took place at the 6th Tynemouth / Coast Explorer Scout's HQ.

There was a great turn out with a number of teams from all of the District's Explorer Scout Units as well as a special entry from the District's Network Unit.

The standard was very high with all of the teams producing some excellent dishes.

How To Make Gaucamole

The traditional method is to use a whisk or masher but if you find yourself in an open area without the right utensils and that gaucamole just has to be made there is an alternative method. Thankfully the judges didn't see this particular method of preparation before tasting it.
