NEFF launches search for nation’s biggest cookaholics

Kitchen appliance brand NEFF has once again launched its search to find the next NEFF Cookaholic, with the help of last year’s winner, food blogger Nicky Corbishley.

For the second year running, the brand is looking for real food enthusiasts who are obsessed with recipes, passionate about getting creative in the kitchen and cooking real food for the ones they love. The competition search will see one winner follow in the footsteps of Nicky and become the latest addition to the panel of NEFF Cookaholics, as well as receive a kitchen’s worth of premium NEFF kitchen appliances.

The NEFF Cookaholics panel already has seven real-life creative cooks on board (with information on the team available at www.neff.co.uk/neffcookaholics) and as a new member, the 2017 winner will be involved in recipe creation, product testing, and will be among the first to see the latest NEFF appliance developments.

Nicky Corbishley, food blogger and 2016’s Next NEFF Cookaholic winner, commented: “I didn’t expect the competition to affect me in such a positive way. It has given me the confidence to cook new and exciting dishes and it is great to be working with NEFF every day. I would encourage anyone considering the competition this year to enter; you have nothing to lose but everything to gain. Working with the NEFF team and their amazing products is so rewarding.”

To enter the competition, passionate cooks can simply submit their own secret ingredient, creative twist or special cooking method on their favourite recipe along with a photo at www.neff.co.uk/neffcookaholics.

NEFF group marketing manager Jo Eyers said: “Being a Cookaholic means that you weigh by hand, you don’t follow a recipe, you add or change ingredients and make dishes special by making them your own. Perhaps you add a richness to your Bolognese by using veal instead of beef mince, or maybe you swear by adding a dollop of chutney to your curry sauce – however you fuse flavours, test textures and think outside the cookbook, let us know and you could win £10,000 worth of NEFF appliances that suit your individual style and kitchen design.”

Jo added: “Nicky’s winning summer beef and Guinness casserole impressed the judges last year with the addition of couscous and crunchy vegetables making it an unusual summer alternative. I’m excited to see what interesting, unique dishes the entrants to our 2017 competition come up with.”

The competition is open from April 10 and entries will be shortlisted after the closing date of June 30 2017. The Next Cookaholic winner will be chosen through a live cook-off at Big Feastival in August, judged by Nicky and the crowd on Saturday August 26.
