Calling home bakers young and old
Pop-up kitchen Cirque Culinaire is calling on locals to enter its “Festive Treats Competition and Display” on Errol St on December 4 for their chance at “baking fame!”
Following its celebration of talented local cooks at the Queensberry Cup in October, the foodie team behind Cirque Culinaire will be homing in on the sweeter side of shared plates in North Melbourne next month.
If you love to create Christmas cookies or other festive treats, or like sharing your culture through food, then grab your cinnamon and enter this free competition.
Participants will create their works at home before delivering the finished products on December 4 to be judged by experienced home cooks from the Country Women’s Association.
The competition is open to children, teens and adults, with four categories – decorated cakes, pretty Christmas treats, tasty festive sweets (e.g., Holi, Eid, etc.) and poems about food (for children) – and prizes to be awarded in several categories.
Entries will be publicly displayed at the Lithuanian Club in the afternoon. The event, presented by B-Friend and The Village World Festival and supported by the City of Melbourne, Victorian Government and The Centre, will also include food demonstrations by locals, prize giveaways, and certificates for all entries.
Exhibition space is limited and registrations are encouraged as soon as possible. •
