Holy Mustard, Batman! It's a competition

Batman Live Opening
Put on your apron, dust off your mixing bowls: it's competition time and National Family Week is looking for a cooking hero - who could win a VIP pass to the Batman Live Arena show when it tours the UK this sumer.

National Family Week and French’s Mustard are on the hunt for the nation’s favourite family BBQ recipe - whether that be a delectable dip, a gorgeous grilling recipe or a sensational sauce - and they'll reward the winning chef and their family with an all expenses, VIP trip to see the Batman Live World Arena Tour in the UK.

All you need to do is design a grilling recipe that the whole family can enjoy using everyone’s favourite, French’s Mustard. The recipe must take no longer than 25 minutes to prepare and be ready to serve, totally original to you and never published (full rules here). It can be anything from a vegetable dip to a main course. Be as imaginative as you like, just as long as it’s tasty!

When you’ve created your recipe, upload it here on the National Family Week web site, along with a photo of your prepared dish.

The winner of the best dish as chosen by celebrity chef Antony Worral Thompson, will experience the VIP treatment courtesy of French’s to see “The Batman Live Stage Show” at any of the UK arena venues with a night's accommodation. The show will incorporate all of the trappings of the Batman universe: Batman and Robin, as well as butler Alfred, will battle many of the iconic villains such as The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman and The Penguin in a new, original storyline created for the show.

Five Runners-up will receive family tickets to the Batman Live Stage Show at any of the venues across the UK, while each and every entrant will be sent a tube of French’s mustard.

Entries must be received by: Monday 6th June 2011; winners will be drawn on the: Wednesday 15th June 2011
