Taste Bud Battle
The Taste Bud Battle semi-finals, in Partnership with Capsicum Cooking School and Hirsch’s Homestore, was hosted over the weekend. The event took place at Cresta and Menlyn Shopping Centres.
Taste Bud Battle is a cooking competition for young, aspiring chefs and bakers. It was an interactive experience, filled with fun, learning and a chance to become a culinary superstar! Kids who entered Uploaded their recipe, photos of their dish and an optional video. After that judges chose their top contestants to move onto the semi-finals.
Children from all ages competed showcasing their masterpiece dishes. After that, the judges tasted the food and chose the finalists. “It was amazing to see the amount of talent that the children who have entered the competition have. Their passion for baking and cooking really came through. The theme was “Fruity Fun” and some of the contestants really took it all the way with their innovation and taste”, said Hirsch’s Megan Fraser. The Contestants had their friends, families and the Hirsch’s PR team cheering them on while they cooked. The team also handed out some Hirsch’s goodies to keep the spectators and parents busy.
