If you adore great food, love sharing it with friends and family, respect and indulge in fabulous flavours and embrace the ‘paddock to plate’ approach, then we want to hear from you!

How to Enter

Using any Barker’s of Geraldine product, create your own take on a classic recipe (be it baking, dessert, savoury, drink etc) and upload using this Facebook app and hashtag #BarkersFoodies2015. You’ll need to include two styled images – taken by you (same recipe, different perspectives) to showcase your skills.

The Prize

Our new recipe developer/foodie will receive a 12 month contract with Barker’s of Geraldine to create delicious recipes using Barker’s products, a trip to the Barker’s family farm in Geraldine, a one-on-one workshop with Annabelle White (one of our judging panel), plus a special Barker’s gift pack. Total prize value worth $7,500.

The winner must develop/photograph 25x recipes during the 12 month partnership following clear guidelines from Barker’s. This is a ‘work-from-home’ role and is not salaried nor a full time position. It is an opportunity for keen foodies to make their mark with a prominent NZ food brand that can fit in-and-around the successful applicants existing lifestyle and work commitments.

Winner must have access to their own photographic, baking and kitchen equipment, including internet and computer.

Who Are The Judges

Recipes and photos will be judged by the Barker’s team as well as friends of Barker’s, popular food writer Annabelle White and respected food stylist and photographer, Tamara West who has shot many top selling cookbooks for NZ chefs including Nadia Lim and Chelsea Winter.

“This competition not only rewards keen foodies, it will be a dream come true for one, opening doors and providing training and support to make the journey as delicious as a spoonful of Barker’s fruit jams,” says Annabelle.
