2014 Competition

The 2014 competition has now closed. Congratulations to all the teams who entered and made it through to the finals.

What is Kitchen Showdown?

It’s a cooking competition where you get to show off your cooking skills to the country! Teams must be year 7 and/or year 8 students, with four students per team. Each team must create their very own recipe, with a few key requirements. The meal must:

– be a MAIN course meal and be able to serve a family of 4 people (2 adults+2 children)
– cost a maximum of $20 to make
– include the use of one MAGGI product
– be able to be made and plated up in 50mins (but not quicker than 40mins)
Check out the Judging Criteria for details on what our three judges will be looking for

Your school has the chance to win the grand prize of $5,000 or one of two runner up prizes of $1,000. The three teams in the National Final will all be treated to a VIP on air experience on The 4.30 Show. All of the 36 schools in the regional finals will be filmed and shown on The 4.30 Show too.
