The Mayor of Grantham, Jacky Smith, joined the army’s top chefs, both regular and reserve, as they showed their skills and talents in a one-day cooking event at the Prince William of Gloucester Barracks last weekend.

The competition was organised by 167 Catering Support Regiment RLC. It included an Improvised Field Catering Challenge that saw teams of three chefs tasked to cook a two-course meal for 20 soldiers using ingredients from operational ration packs, but only after they had built a stove from materials including an empty medal drum, a metal grid and bricks.
