7:00pm – Doors open. Tables will be set up for you to display your baking.
7:20pm – Tasting, judging and voting for People’s Choice starts. Everyone attending can try as many entries as they wish, subject to availability and stomach space.
7:50pm – Judges announce the winners, including People’s Choice.
8:00pm – Tidy up – volunteers needed to pack tables away and sweep up the inevitable crumbs.
- Judges’ decisions are final.
- Entries must be homemade and fit into one of the four categories below.
- Please label your entries if they meet any specific dietary needs eg gluten free, vegan.
- Participants are responsible for taking all remaining baking and containers away.
- We take no responsibility for any overconsumption of sugar at this event.
- ‘Get me up that hill’ – High energy snacks that you can carry with you on a tramp and eat on the track. Entries to this category need to be pocket-sized and practical snacks you can make at home before you head out on a trip.
- Hut-friendly desserts – What homemade sweet treat do you like to round off a good day in the hills with? This category includes anything you think you can make mid-tramp, with what you have carried into a hut. Billy-baked cakes, carefully carried and constructed pavlovas, and creek-chilled cheesecake would all fit the bill.
- ‘Post-tramp treats’ – What do you dream about eating when you finish a hard trip? What’s your go-to recovery eating recipe? This category is for anything and everything that you can make at home to reward yourself post-tramp – the more decadent or nourishing the better!
- Tararua biscuits – Your take on this tramping staple. Key features are high energy, indestructible and versatile enough to be eaten on-tramp for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all three!). Check out the TTC website for more detail on what makes a good Tararua biscuit.
Printed copies of the latest WTMC Cookbook will also be on sale on the night.
