Our finalists are revealed!

We are delighted to announce our Recipe Developer Finalists

Our search has narrowed down to four! We have selected four finalists from around the country who are competing to be the new Barker’s 2015 Recipe Developer/Foodie.

Keen foodies Bex Savage from Rolleston, Jess Goodwin from Christchurch, Dianne McDonald from Dunedin and Farzana Rashid from Auckland will find out later this month who has won the nationwide search.

The judging panel includes well-known food photographer Tamara West (left) and food writer Annabelle White (right), and key members of the Barker’s team. The judges were overwhelmed with the scrumptious recipes and impressed with the quality of entries received, particularly the four finalists, who all showed impressive cooking, photography and creativity!

Our judges have a tough decision ahead.

Finalist Bex Savage (also known as the Tattooed Baker) says: “I absolutely love food and I am so excited to be selected as one of Barker’s finalists.”

Jess Goodwin says: “I am over the moon to be a finalist and have already started a list of delicious recipe concepts that I could create for Barker’s for food lovers to enjoy.”

We will announce the winner at a media event in Auckland on Tuesday 24 March.

To those who have entered and were unsuccessful, thank you so much for your inspiration, tireless creativity and genuine love of food. We’ll be in touch shortly!
