International students, win $100 by showing us your cooking skills!
Our recent cooking masterclass with Waurn Ponds Estate Executive Chef Adam Draper was a huge success! An eager group of 10 international students watched Adam create a simple and versatile veggie stir-fry dish, and then enjoyed a tasty lunch while spending time chatting and getting to know each other.
We’re feeling so inspired by the class that we’re keen to get more students into the kitchen – and there’s no better time than National Nutrition Week (16–23 October)!
We’re using Adam’s lesson as inspiration for a fun online recipe competition – and we have three $100 Woolworths vouchers to give away to our winners! Here’s what you need to do:
Either recreate Adam’s tasty stir-fry dish (see recipe below) or cook your own favourite healthy meal – this might be a dish from your culture or family background that’s meaningful, or just be your favourite go-to recipe.
Take a photo of your completed meal.
Read the below terms and conditions and complete the entry form, including uploading your photo.
You have until 5pm on Friday 4 November to submit your entry! Ready to get cooking?
**Congratulations to Kaloyan Marinov, Irina Milenko and Safira Carvalho the winners of the three $100 Woolworths vouchers.**
