With the objective of promoting healthy eating, the Heart4MoreFoundation challenged several Arsenal stars to a good old fashioned cook-off. Hector Bellerin, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chuba Akpom and Arsenal ladies Danielle Carter were all tasked with cooking a fairly simple salmon dish in round one and to prepare an omelet in round two. All players are very young (they are all under 23) and were selected to try to connect with the youth.
The content generated was highly entertaining and players where full of surprises. Akpom did not know a thing about cooking, the Ox was unfamiliar with some of the utensils and Bellerin was trying to show off his Spanish roots. Despite all four players producing four largely inedible-looking plates of food, the winner was Oxlade Chamberlain.
The cook-off was a success, all players had a blast while cooking. The videos turn out to be really fun and they got over 100k views and the Heart4MoreFoundation got a lot of exposure which was the whole purpose of the campaign. The videos can now be seen on Arsenal´s Youtube channel.
