Kitchen Showdown

Pop Up Kitchen Showdown

Vege Box

The MAGGI Pop Up Kitchen Showdown returns for 2017, with entries opening at 11am on Monday 8th May.

The MAGGI Pop Up Kitchen Showdown is a cooking competition where you get to show off your cooking skills to the country! Team members must be aged between 11-16 years with 2 to 4 students per team. Each team must create their very own recipe, with a few key requirements.

The meal must:

  • Include the use of at least 1 MAGGI Recipe Base (from the list below) as an ingredient in the dish- get creative and use the recipe base in a unique way.
  • Be a balanced main course including lots of vegetables! A good guide is for half the plate to be made up of fibrous vegetables or salad, with ¼ being a lean protein source like lean meat or fish and ¼ being a starchy carbohydrate like potatoes, rice or pasta.
  • Serve a family of 4 people, (2 adults & 2 children).
  • Cost a maximum of $20 to make.
