To celebrate Cookie Smile’s One-Year Anniversary, we will be hosting our first Cookie Smiles Bake Challenge! Cookie Smiles is a social enterprise under the Edible Artists Global Academy Association (EAGAA), whose purpose is to support two charities per year via fundraising, offer training opportunities for the disadvantaged and provide jobs for the physically impaired.
As the challenge is open to the public, we encourage anyone who is interested to enter the competition. This challenge will be most interesting to baking hobbyists, aspiring bakers and culinary students of all levels.
Each competitor will create and develop their recipe from the list of ingredients provided and must include one of these special ingredients – Rosemary or Mint from Hysan Development’s Hysan Urban Farm
There will be three rounds of challenges taking place at the Hong Kong New Oriental Culinary Art (HKNOC) location in North Point and Complete Deelite (CD) in Central.
