Are you looking to find an easy way to make great tasting meals for your family? We have been asked by the team at George Foreman Grills to find 11 Mumsnetters to attend a cookery demo event in Manchester city centre on Tuesday 16th April and try out a grill at home.
The event will involve:

~ Attending a cooking demo of the George Foreman grills (and eating the results of the demo!) - at a penthouse apartment in Manchester City Centre between 10am and 2pm. The demo will be given by George Foreman's own cooking expert
~ A chance to try out George Foreman recipes yourself
~ Travel costs up to the value of £30 each will be paid - with valid receipts. You can also park near the apartment. The exact venue will be revealed to the selected Mumsnetters
~ With regret no children due to safety concerns.

After the demo each Mumsnetter will receive a George Foreman grill to trial (RRP will be between £49.99 - £89.99 depending on product availability) and a George Foreman Apron.

The day is designed to showcase:
~ How easy it is to cook quick and healthy food
~ How versatile a George Forman Grill is - selected Mumsnetters will be shown how to cook a variety of food including fish, vegetables and even desserts!

For this we are looking for Mumsnetters in the Manchester/North West area who have at least one child and who are interested in finding out about new ways to cook healthy family meals.

After the event we will need you to try out the George Foreman grill at home and record video footage of you and your family using it. You'll be given some recipe ideas and tips. Testers will then be required to add their feedback to a thread on Mumsnet.

If you'd like to apply to take part please add your details here.
All those selected will be emailed details.

I've got one thanks, never use it though, makes the house stink!

It's a huge one too, anyone fancy buying it? North west, used twice.

SamraLee - sorry - I think numbers are tight so I think it's just one MNer per invite.

TheOneWithTheHair - thanks - I'll amend that for you

You can come to mine and do the video with me TSC. I'm SURE that will be informative and educational.
