COOKERY CONTEST: Winner Mar Sierra Grande with her prize Photo credit: Mojacar town hall

THE Mojacar Branch of the Red Cross recently held its second Cookery Contest.

Organised for local senior citizens belonging to its Care for the Elderly programme, the competition was cancelled last year owing to Covid restrictions.

This year, participants in the programme asked for its return and, as in the prevision edition, each prepared a signature dish at home.


They later took these along to Mojacar’s Red Cross centre where the 36 experienced cooks met up and sampled each other’s dishes.

These were also judged by a jury that included Mojacar’s mayor Rosa Maria Cano, with the first prize going to Mar Sierra Grande for her Christmas Cake.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
