REI is cooking up a delicious quest for you!
You have five ingredients to prepare your best dish. Are you up for the challenge?
Please register by 20 August 2021.

The Virtual Cooking Challenge

Throughout the past year we have had to reinvent the way we work, go to school, socialize, and do many other things.

In this challenge, REI calls upon you to think outside the box and REInvent another activity – the way you cook! Participants must prepare a dish that will not be judged on taste, but on imaginativeness and resourcefulness. How creative can you get to win over the judges when they can’t actually try your dish?

All proceeds go to the projects we support – for refugees, by refugees. Let’s test our creativity and expand our limits while making a difference. Kindness is a dish best served warm!

The challenge

  • You will be given a box of five ingredients
  • Visualize your best dish from the given ingredients and bring it to life! You are only allowed to use salt, pepper, oil, and one canned item from your cupboard as optional additional ingredients.

Test your creativity – there will be awards for Presentation, 0 Waste, and Best Overall.

How to participate

  1. Fill in your information and make a contribution of ¥5,000 (¥1,000 covers cost and ¥4,000 is donation to REI) by Friday 20 August.
  2. We will send you a box with the ingredients required to cook your dish.
  3. Submit a picture of your cooked dish, the recipe, and a short description of your cooking inspiration. Deadline for submissions is Sunday 29 August.
  4. Sit back, relax, and stream the live show on Wednesday 1 September at 16:00 hosted by the Tokyo EDITION Toranomon. The hotel’s fantastic chefs will show off their skills and announce the winners!

For additional fun

  • Compete for the most likes!
  • Post a picture of your completed dish on social media and use the hashtag #TBC
