The Australian Culinary Federation Culinary Committee is made up of  representatives from each region that are in turn the senior judge of that region .

Their focus is running successful competitions either Regionally or Nationally under the competition guidelines of Worldchefs.

The Committee runs several regional judging workshops as well as one national judges workshop a year with the aim to create a consistent judging style and system across our country and a pathway to Worldchefs Judging credential.

Competitions are also endorsed by the  ACF through the Culinary Committee where the criteria is either written or checked and signed off by the committee.
