5 Reasons to Enter Cook, Snap & Win this Weekend

We’re smack-bang in the middle of our Chinese New Year Cooking Contest, with just over three weeks until the competition ends on February 26th. If you haven’t yet come to the party, then read on to discover five reasons why you should enter Cook, Snap & Win this weekend (hint: one of them is the chance to win the foodie trip of a lifetime).


1. Sharing is caring

If you’re a fan of Asian Inspirations, then chances are you love to cook. For us, one of the greatest joys of cooking is the chance to share our creations with family and friends. With Cook, Snap & Win, you can share your favourite recipe with hundreds of thousands of people, bringing your kitchen skills to a whole new audience.

2. Competition breeds creativity

So far we’ve been blown away by the standard of the dishes submitted for Cook, Snap & Win in 2017. Recipes that have really hit the sweet spot include Bernadette Hendry’s sweet Thai chicken with crispy fried ginger and Gmpear’s sweet and sour pork belly salad. Now it’s your turn to get creative in the kitchen! Simply buy two specially marked products at your local supermarket, then whip up a brand-new creation that’ll get our mouths watering.

3. Winners are grinners

Each week, the recipe that scores the most votes wins a $300 dining voucher – there are still four vouchers up for grabs, so don’t delay!

4. Enter the Wok of Fame

Even if you haven’t nabbed a weekly prize yet, don’t despair – you could still be named one of five Wok of Fame winners at the end of the competition. The Asian Inspirations team will be trawling through all the entries to determine the best Thai, Malaysian, Korean, Japanese and Chinese recipe. The winner from each category will win a one-year subscription to Taste Magazine, providing 12 months of foodie inspiration.

5. Pack your bags for Bangkok, baby

Drum roll please! If you’re named the grand prize winner, you and three friends will be packing your bags for a gourmet trip to Thailand. This once-in-a-lifetime trip includes return airfares to Bangkok (from your nearest capital city), accommodation, plus a host of exclusive foodie experiences, including culinary tours and cooking classes, valued at up to $29,000. And the best part? You’ll be joined by Australian food royalty as an editor from Taste accompanies you on your journey. Plus, your winning recipe will be professionally styled and photographed for inclusion in a future issue of the magazine.

So, what are you waiting for? Hit the shops, then hit your stove this weekend to enter Cook, Snap & Win. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Melbourne fans, be sure to head to the Crown Plaza Riverwalk this weekend for the Asian Inspirations cooking demonstrations. We’ve teamed up with Taste and Wine Selector to bring you 10 exclusive cooking masterclasses with five of our top chefs. Read all about this fantastic Lunar New Year event here!
