We've been asked by Plum Baby, the Organic baby food brand, to find one Mumsnetter with a baby aged approximately 6-12 months to go along to a special two day filming session at the Plum Cookery school in Buckinghamshire on 26 and 27 June.

Plum says: "At Plum, we understand that there are enough sleepless nights when it comes to little ones, without having weaning to worry about too. So, we are opening the doors to the Plum Cookery School to reveal some of the tasty secrets behind Plum?s recipes and support parents through the weaning process. You and your baby are invited to be a part of this unique experience where you can meet our celebrity chefs".

Plum is looking for one Mumsnetter to attend the Cookery School for two days. They will learn all about the weaning journey, take cookery lessons with their little one and have the chance to talk to Plum experts. They'll also be the stars of Plum's all new weaning videos, a guide to help parents across the country with their weaning worries.

As well as being a part of the Plum Cookery School, the selected MNer will also receive travel and overnight accommodation, a video camera to film how their weaning journey continues at home and £500 for their baby.

The Cookery School sessions will be filmed and edited into 'episodes' which will then be shown on YouTube and elsewhere (including on Mumsnet). A total of five mums and babies will be attending and we are looking for one MNer to join the group. Food and drink will be provided during the sessions.

Plum says: "Celebrity chef, Rachel Allen is working with Plum as part of the Cookery School. She'll be on hand to give her recipe suggestions, answer any cooking-related questions and tell her own anecdotes about weaning her children. Together with Rachel, gathered foodies will even work together to help to create the next range of Plum recipes.
"Hosting the Plum Cookery School will be children's food expert, Beverley Glock. Beverley is the author of successful book 500 Baby and Toddler Foods and has 11 years'experience of cooking with mums and babies"

Hi Ann, when do we find out who the lucky winner is?

I've now passed on the details to Plum and they will shortlist folks - they have a procedure to follow as they are also recruiting from other channels. So they will be in touch with those shortlisted directly. Best of luck!
