October is a month for breast cancer awareness and support.
To support this great cause, we will be posting a daily recipe on our blog using the new Royal Selangor pewter jelly mould designed by British designer Nick Munro, in aid of breast cancer.
We are honoured to have been invited by Royal Selangor to be part of this 30-day ’Get Your Jelly on’ challenge where ten bloggers from around the world compete for an all-expense paid 4-day trip for two to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia worth $5,000. The winner will also be required to hold a cooking and media photography event at the Royal Selangor centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Being the youngest of the ten blogs, we are a little daunted, to say the least. The profiles of the other bloggers and the popularity of their beautiful blog posts and photographs are intimidating. The prospect of competing against these talented bloggers will mean using all of our creative skills in the kitchen. We hope to use this opportunity to experiment and share new recipes with our readers and support a great cause at the same time.
Please join us on this worthy journey to support women affected by breast cancer. All proceeds from the sale of these beautiful pewter jelly moulds will go towards improving the quality of life for women affected by this disease through the Breast Cancer Welfare Association.
Royal Selangor has given each participant two beautiful pewter moulds with recipe cards from celebrity chefs, an apron and an Olympus VG-110 camera to kick start the competition. The winner of the competition will be judged based on creativity of the recipes using the pewter jelly mould.
Some of the terms and conditions include committing to the 30-day challenge by publishing a recipe involving the mould everyday in the month of October 2011.
You can support and help raise the awareness of breast cancer by the following ways:
- Share our recipes with family and friends on Facebook or Twitter.
- Like chopinandmysaucepan on Facebook.
- Follow chopinandmysaucepan on Twitter.
- Suggest to us any recipe, jelly or otherwise that you may like us to cook using the mould. Recipes do not necessarily need to incorporate gelatin and participants are encouraged to be as creative as possible. We need all the help we can get and would welcome any creative ideas and recipes from our readers.
- Purchase a jelly mould from Royal Selangor. Remember, all sales proceeds will go towards improving the lives of women affected by breast cancer.
The competition starts on 1 October 2011 and we will be publishing a blog post everyday for thirty days, so be sure to check out our recipes each day.
If you enjoy our daily posts throughout October 2011, do consider helping the cause for breast cancer by participating in any or all the the ways mentioned above.
