Call for teams for Burnie’s Super Cook Out

We have all been inspired by the many cooking television shows and now it’s your turn to show off your cooking skills.

Burnie City Council is calling for ten teams of four to compete in the first ever Burnie Super Cook Out, based on the popular television programs such as My Kitchen Rules and Master Chef. Register now!

Mayor Steve Kons said, “I would like to encourage teams of children, adults and families to register. The first lucky ten teams of four will prepare dishes which will be judged for quality and taste by special guest judges Esther and Ali from My Kitchen Rules.

“Recipes will include local produce and all cooking will be done on BBQs, woks and portable gas stoves. You can’t really prepare for the event as each team will be given a mystery box of ingredients with a recipe.”
It is a requirement that all participants are amateur cooks. Participants cannot have any formal tertiary or other professional catering qualifications as this will create an unfair advantage.

“The whole purpose of this event is to encourage healthy eating and to educate easy ways to eat and cook more healthily and affordably.

“There are great prizes to win. It’s worth registering quick as only the first ten teams will be accepted.”
The Burnie Super Cook Out will be held on 5 February 2012 at Shorewell Plaza from 11am to 2pm.

“We want a big crowd there to support the ten teams, so that everyone can benefit from the skills learnt. Plus there will be lots of free entertainment on the day, including face painting, a jumping castle, Auskick, Slipstream Circus and Bernie the Blue Tongue Lizard,” Mayor Kons said.

This is free event to attend and register for. The Burnie Super Cook Out is part of the Healthy Communities Initiative that is set to help increase the Burnie community’s participation in healthy eating practices.
