Entrants have 1 hour and 15 minutes to prepare, cook and serve a school compliant two course menu that is suitable for 11 year-old pupils, including at least one Quorn product, alongside a 50% fruit-based dessert that reflects the school food standards.

The East of England final is one of the four different regional finals, all happening across June and July. The national final will take place at LACA Main Event and Education Catering Exhibition, Hilton Birmingham Metropole on the 12th and 13th of October 2021.
