Cuisine for seniors living in aged care facilities is about to get a culinary makeover at a live cook-off competition on Sunday 12 August 2018. Set within the Logan Campbell Centre in Auckland, the Senior Lifestyle Cuisine cooking competition will showcase the culinary skills of 12 chef competitors who work at aged care facilities around New Zealand.

They will have just 75 minutes to prepare and serve four covers of two main fish and meat dishes destined for the aged care market. Ultimately, the goal is to improve the creativity and standard of foods on offer at aged care facilities.

A team of top industry judges will assess the dishes against a range of criteria including presentation of food, taste and texture, control of the cooking process, professional practice and preparation.

The judges include Chetan Pangam, Sean Kereama, Robert Haddock, Angela Ferguson and Louise Abbott.
