Following on from the success of last year’s inaugural event, which saw hundreds of entries from statewide, ‘The Big Bethanie Bake Off’ returns for a second year.
To take part, school aged kids and seniors 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' in November.
Have a Go Day is a free event that welcomes over 45s to try a range of sporting and recreation activities to encourage them to join a sport or recreation club. The event also features a large range of static displays offering information on a range of topics and interests.
As part of 'The Big Bethanie Bake Off', school aged children will be asked to research their grandparents’ background and discover their favourite recipe.
Each submission will be judged on the creativity, nutritional value, and complexity of the recipe, along with the story behind their secret family recipe.
“This is an excellent opportunity to close the intergenerational gap in a fun, safe and social environment,” says Chris How, Bethanie chief executive.
“At Bethanie, we strive to keep our residents and clients social, active, and provide engaging activities to improve their well-being. What better way to do just that than by providing a platform that allows our clients to both bake and interact with West Australian children," Mr How says.
“We are excited to see some healthy and wholesome ideas poured into the pots and pans for an exciting 'bake off',” he adds.
Four Bethanie residents will be chosen as finalists to compete against four chosen school students at the Grand Finale on 11 November 2015 for a live bake off at Have a Go Day, Burswood Park.
