VOICE OF HOSPITALITY

2024 CULINARY CHALLENGE

Mark your calendars! This year, the Culinary Challenge will be hosted at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) from 2-5 September 2024 as a highlight of Fine Food Australia. 

Chefs, apprentices, and trainees are invited to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in a race against time and each other. Compete for a generous share of cash and prizes while displaying your skills to a captivated audience.

The competition will feature a variety of challenges including the National Apprentice Competition, ACF Most Outstanding Chef,  Yum Cha Challenge, Team Challenge, and the Nestle Golden Chefs Hat, alongside a series of live individual events.

Join us at the competition arena where the  BUONDI  Chef Lounge offers a prime spot for viewing all the action. Feel free to drop by for a snack, a drink, and a friendly chat with fellow chefs and sponsors.

Please ensure to register for the show via the Fine Foods website. Registration is complimentary and necessary for entry into both the show and the competition arena.
