Big Bethanie Bake OffBig Bethanie Bake Off 2019

There’s something so heart-warming about cooking as a family – stories bubble to the surface, generational differences are diluted, and bonds are seared for life.

If you’re lucky, you’ve been entrusted with the secret ingredients of a family’s much-loved recipe – a recipe that could make you a big winner!

Following the successful 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 events, the Big Bethanie Bake Off is taking place this November.

Grandparents and kids across WA with a fantastic family recipe (and an equally great story behind it) are encouraged to enter before the closing date of 15 October 2019.

The Big Bethanie Bake Off is designed to engage WA seniors, along with kids and their grandparents, to take part in a cooking competition based on “cooking up grandma’s favourite recipe.”

It’s going to be our biggest and best Bake Off yet, all thanks to Bethanie, WA’s most well-known not-for-profit aged care and retirement living provider.

About the Competition

The Big Bethanie Bake Off is a chance to celebrate the remarkable relationships between grandparents and their grandkids, as symbolised in the sharing of a treasured family recipe.

We ask that all entrants submit their ‘favourite recipe’, accompanied by its story to be judged by a panel of expert judges. This story can reveal the background of the family recipe and special times shared over good food, whilst also reflecting upon your lives, culture and history.

Four lucky finalists will be chosen to compete at Have-a-Go Day for a live Bake Off Grand Final, which takes place on 13 November 2019 at Burswood Park.

While competitors prepare for the big event, Bethanie is also seeking kids of school age to submit their grandparent’s favourite recipe, so they too can become one of four finalists who will compete against four senior clients in this year’s Grand Final.

The event not only creates an opportunity 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.
