#doDifferent and Cook for a Cause

Do you like cooking? Do you want to be part of a Guinness world record attempt? Do you want to #doDifferent?

The perfect opportunity to do all of this is happening soon where, together with some great companies, you can be part of a fantastic event with the goal of raising money for Reach For A Dream.

The event is the second annual Cooking For Dreams, taking place on 1 September. Here’s how it works.

You buy your curated box of ingredients, sponsored by everyone’s favourite food market Woolworths Food. Your box of ingredients is then delivered to your door courtesy of dpd laser who are sponsoring the logistics for the event. You then join virtually - or in person - a live cook-along on 1 September at Emperors Palace where celebrity chefs David Higgs, The Lazy Makoti, and J’Something will be cooking the dishes they have created for the event, and which you have the ingredients to create along with them. Our hats go off to these companies and celebrities choosing to #doDifferent in supporting this event.

Since all the ingredients and logistics are sponsored, all the proceeds from the purchase of your box go straight to Reach For A Dream and the inspiring work they do supporting and granting wishes to children affected by life-threatening illnesses. This organization provides real hope and comfort to the children and their extended families faced with such tragic circumstances.

The 2021 edition of Cooking for Dreams set an official Guinness world record for the most people simultaneously cooking online at 776 participants, but the event was supported by 2300 cooks who purchased boxes and raised R850 000. This year, the goal is to break their previous record and they are targeting 3000 cooks supporting the event.

So, why not #doDifferent and introduce some excitement into your dinner time on 1 September by joining this fantastic event. You could be part of a world record and your contribution will go towards giving hope and fulfilling a dream of a child facing a life-threatening illness.
