Festival Searches for Australia’s Best Home Cooked Dish

If you believe your home cooking finesse can stack up against the rest of Australia, your culinary dreams could come true with an exciting competition brought to you by Australia’s favourite food, wine and lifestyle event, the Noosa International Food and Wine Festival.  Food lovers across the country have the chance to be part of the inaugural ‘Australia’s Best Home Cook Dish’ competition, where you stand to win some amazing prizes.

As part of the 2014 event, The Festival will be searching nation-wide for passionate home cooks from all walks of life to be part of ‘Australia’s Best Home Cooked Dish’ competition. You can be in the mix for the ultimate prize of a Qantas trip to London for two, $5 000 spending money from Westpac together with stunning appliance packages from ILVE and KitchenAid. To assist in your future culinary creations you will also receive $2000.00 voucher from Mary Ryan’s to extend your cook book collection.

Entry to the competition is simple. Just create a savoury recipe that costs under $15 per single serve and submit it along with a photo and a 30 second video describing why your meal should be awarded ‘Australia’s Best Home Cooked Dish’.

Semi-Finalists will be chosen from each state or territory to compete in the ‘Great State Cook Off’ in their major city for a spot in the national final. Rubbing shoulders with the “who’s who” of the culinary world, the national finalists will attend and compete at the Noosa International Food and Wine Festival 2014 from 15-18 May with the winning recipe awarded ‘Australia’s Best Home Cooked Dish’.

Festival Director Jim Berardo said the new competition adds yet another dimension to the Noosa International Food and Wine Festival program for 2014 and encourages home chefs to get creative in the kitchen. “Australians love good food and sharing it with family and friends. Australia’s Best Home Cook Dish competition allows participants to share their passion and creations with the rest of the country and gives us the opportunity to profile our unsung food heroes.” he said.

So if you’re the best home cook you know and want to turn your recipe to riches, then don’t miss your chance to make your culinary dreams come true in Noosa next May.
