ARMY cadets gathered in Gatton on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for a weekend of cooking.
The cadets whipped up many culinary creations from apricot chicken and potato bake to cakes and biscuits, all in outdoor ovens.
Hosted by the 139 Lockyer Valley Army Cadets Unit, 28 cadets from Gatton, Bulimba and Chinchilla and 12 staff spent the weekend cooking in unconventional ways.
The Australian Army Cadet Brigade regional cadet under officer for south Queensland, Job King, said the event was held every two years.
"We are all preparing food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and it is not just damper, but things like roast and pavlova as well," he said.
The cadets, aged from twelve-and-a-half to 20, are taught to cook and how to use outdoor ovens such as mud and bell ovens.
The Lockyer Valley Unit will next host an engineering weekend, where they will construct items such as bridges.
