In all 19,000 groups from w/c Feb 9th to w/c Feb 16th, members will be encouraged to cook, share and win with Free Food cook-offs. Every group will select a best winning recipe and the winning member will be entered into a national competition to find the best new Slimming World recipe. Ten finalists will then be invited to Slimming World’s Derbyshire head office for the final competition.
Winner of the Great British Bake Off 2019, David Atherton, will be a judge for the national final of the competition along with Slimming World HQ head chef Ruth Butler and Slimming World’s Head of Food and Publications Allison Brentnall.
After the final, the top three winners will have their recipes featured in Slimming World Magazine with the chance to win one of three cash prizes:
- 1st place – £1,000/€1,300
- 2nd place – £500/€650
- 3rd place – £250/€325
David Atherton, winner of the Great British Bake Off 2019, says: “Cooking is a huge passion of mine so I’m really excited to be part of this campaign. Experimenting with new flavour combinations and inspiring new ideas is a really great way to get people cooking from scratch again, which is really important when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I can’t wait to see which dishes are created as part of Slimming World’s Free Food Festival – it’s making me feel hungry already!”
