After the success of the Big Bethanie Bake Off in 2014, 2015, and 2016 Bethanie is pleased to announce the launch of its much-anticipated 2017 Big Bethanie Bake Off.
About the Competition
This event aims to encourage Bethanie clients and Western Australian seniors to share their favourite recipe, or their parent or grandparent’s favourite recipe, along with a story behind it, to be judged by a panel of expert judges.
Four lucky finalists will be chosen to compete at Have-a-Go Day for a live Bake Off Grand Final, which takes place on 1st November 2017 at Burswood Park.
Last year, Marjorie Ugle from Bethanie Maali Social Centre resident was crowned the 2016 Big Bethanie Bake Off senior winner for her delicious – Kangaroo patties.
While competitors prepare for the big event, Bethanie is also seeking school children to submit their grandparent’s favourite recipe, so they too can become one of four finalists who will compete against four Bethanie clients in this year’s Grand Final.
The event not only creates an opportunity for our clients to reminisce and relive the wonderful memories that arise while researching and perfecting their favourite recipe, it is also a great opportunity for Bethanie to help close the ever-increasing inter-generational gap between our seniors and youngsters.
The Big Bethanie Bake Off will showcase our clients’ culinary prowess and offer the chance to win amazing prizes, whilst leaving an everlasting legacy with all finalist recipes being published in a special recipe booklet.
