Now I have heard many of you boasting about how your moms make the best this and that. And I know also that some of you are also quite good cooks but though we can boast about mom, we have to be modest when it comes to our own skills. (Though you wouldn’t mind someone else boasting on your behalf right?)
Well, it is time to put your money where your mouth is and at the same time render some support for SAGE (Singapore Action Group for the Elders). As part of the YMCA’s Youth for Causes Challenge 2008, Team Goldenleap (Group of volunteers from NUS) is organizing a National Heritage competition where you all get to submit your favourite recipes for a competition. The 10 finalists will get to showcase their recipes at a Food Carnival on 14th September at the Scape Youth Park in Orchard. And your recipes will be published in a book for posterity.
In short, you just need to submit your recipe with a picture and tell them why the recipe is so unique. Of course, as with all competitions, there will be prizes but I think for most of you the satisfaction is to get recognition of mum’s (or your own) recipe and have it preserved for future generations of Singaporeans to enjoy, and all for a good cause!
