screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-12.08.36-pmWednesday 9 November 2016. Bethanie, one of Western Australia’s most well known not-for-profit aged care and retirement living providers, officially launches the ‘Big Bethanie Bake Off’ for 2016.
Following on from the success of the past two years, which saw many entries from across the state, the Big Bethanie Bake Off returns for a third year, continuing the aim of closing the intergenerational gap between our seniors and youngsters.
To take part, school children and Bethanie residents must submit their family recipes online in the hope of being selected as a finalist to compete in a live bake off at Have a Go Day, Wednesday 9 November 2016.
School-aged children will be asked to research their grandparents’ background and discover their favourite recipe. The children will then need to reproduce the dish – with the aid of a grandparent – and submit their application for a chance to win some amazing prizes.
Each submission will be judged on the creativity, nutritional value, and complexity of the recipe, along with the story behind their secret family recipe.
Winner of last year’s ‘Best Kid’ recipe, Molly Urwin from John XXIII College said her favourite part of the event was the opportunity to cook with her dad and to share their family recipe with the audience and judges.
“My family was very pleased that the recipe was a winner. It was originally my Grandad’s therefore was something my dad grew up with, so I think that he was happy to recreate his memories and see the recipe shared within our family as well as outside of it,” said Molly.
“To anyone looking to enter, I would say jump right in and do it! It was such an amazing opportunity and turned out to be a great day filled with fun and really good food.”
Four Bethanie residents will be chosen as finalists to compete against four chosen school students at the Grand Finale for a live bake off at Have a Go Day, Burswood Park, Wednesday 9 November 2016.
To enter, visit and complete an online entry form.
Entries close 5pm, Wednesday 12 October 2016.
