As one winner's dreams come true, Recipe to Riches begins its search for the next big idea The inaugural Recipe to Riches winner, Garth Midgley of Clarinda, Victoria, will see his culinary creation, Chocorn, on Woolworths shelves across the country.
In last year's innovative Network Ten series, Garth battled it out against 10 other episode winners and a total of 33 selected dishes to secure the grand prize of $100,000 and a life changing deal to have his product stocked exclusively in Woolworths stores nationwide.
Now, thanks to Garth and his much‐loved home recipe, Aussies will never need to choose between chocolate and popcorn again. Chocorn takes popcorn to a new, indulgent level, with a selection of expertly coated popped kernels in three luxurious flavours – sweet white chocolate with macadamia nuts, creamy milk chocolate with roasted hazelnut and rich dark chocolate with fleur de sel.
Garth says; 'I never expected this would happen when I first came up with the idea of Chocorn. The whole Recipe to Riches experience has been amazing, especially the last few months since winning the series and what's been involved with nationwide distribution.
'To think that an idea I came up with at the movies when mixing a choctop with popcorn will now be available at every Woolies store around the country is unbelievably exciting."
The nationwide launch of Chocorn coincides with the exciting news that Recipe to Riches will return to Network Ten later this year and is calling for contestants to be part of Series Two. So the real question is, do you have the next original recipe?
Dig out that family meal that everyone raves about and submit your innovative recipe for your chance to turn your home-made meal or snack into a supermarket sensation, just like Garth did with Chocorn.
Tjeerd Jegen, Managing Director of Woolworths Supermarkets and Petrol says; 'Building on the huge success of Recipe to Riches and Chocorn, we have an exciting new line up planned for 2014. We can't wait to see what recipes Australia has in store for us and which products will end up on Woolworths shelves each week for our customers to taste and judge for themselves."
A limited boxed edition of Chocorn is now available in Woolworths stores nationwide featuring all three of the winning flavours (RRP $7.99).
