CELEBRITY chef James Martin will cook up a treat in Huddersfield, while passing on healthy eating tips to students.
The 37-year-old Yorkshireman will compete against the clock to rustle up a healthy meal before a takeaway arrives.
The event will be at Huddersfield Students’ Union on Monday May 18 from 2pm until 5pm.
Students will be able to try their hand at cooking and suggest recipe ideas.
Budding chefs will also be able to sign up for the second part of the NHS campaign to win a meal for two and £500.
Take On The Takeaway will be filmed and then screened on the BBC on Saturday afternoons.
Lynne Cliffe, project manager, said: “We’re very excited to welcome James Martin to Huddersfield as part of the Up For It campaign.
“The Take On The Takeaway challenge will be the second initiative of the campaign so far, following a hugely successful dance event.
“James will hopefully show the students that cooking can be easy and fun.
“Students from local colleges are welcome too – it should be a good day.”
The Up For It team are currently signing up dodgeball teams for another next stage of the initiative.
The tournament will take place within the next couple of months.
