Healthier Choices Great Canberra Cook Off and fresh Icon Water at Market

What is not to LOVE about eating delicious food that’s healthier too? Healthier Choices Canberra is pleased to announce they are headed to Market for The Great Canberra Cook Off!  On Saturday 30 November, our Market will play host to the final cook-off event to find the winning ‘Stripped Back Chef’. Contestants are encouraged to cook in a ‘stripped back’ environment (think minimal cooking equipment) and will cook-off against each other in the great outdoors on barbecues.

Kicking off at 9am, contestants will cook up a storm and Market-goers will be able to taste the final products and vote. Plus, the kids will be entertained with a kids’ food treasure hunt where they can visit stallholders to spot various items. There are lots of prizes up for grabs, with the winner of the cook-off also gaining Canberra celebrity status and the opportunity to inspire us all with their tasty recipe. This is a fantastic initiative and a great way we can work with Healthier Choices Canberra to promote a common goal – healthier food choices.

As part of the day’s activities, Refill Canberra will install a new portable water filling station which will provide all our visitors with clean drinking water and remain permanently onsite to encourage all visitors to drink tap water and reduce single-use plastics.  Plus, our friends at Icon Water will be giving away reusable stainless steel drink bottles. It’s a great way that all our visitors can stay hydrated during the Cook Off. Entries for The Great Canberra Cook Off close Monday 11 November. See for details.
Healthier Choices Canberra is an ACT Government initiative.
