MasterChef winner Tim Anderson with cooking competition winner student Jessica Kment

MasterChef winner Tim Anderson visited The Tower Bar on Monday, February 27, to give a cooking masterclass to students at the University of Lincoln.

Anderson’s class was part of a series of displays he is giving at universities over the UK; he visited the University of Salford last week.

Fed up of beans on toast? was the tagline to which this event was advertised, however ironically the first recipe that the MasterChef winner showed off was his ‘toast on beans’ recipe.

Anderson said: “I like the idea of a classic, with a different edge. It’s a great recipe, the butterbeans are really meaty and flavourful.”

At the end of the event, three students were picked from the crowd to participate in a cook off judged by Tim.

The winner was Jessica Kment, who won a hamper full of spices and cooking aids.

Rory Keegan, another competitor, said: “The event was a great success, we could really do with something like this on freshers’ week.”
