This competition is a great opportunity for students with an interest in becoming a chef to gain invaluable contacts within the hospitality industry. It is also a lot of fun, and a great learning experience for staff and students alike.
The Australian Culinary Federation of SA would like to try to ensure that every talented, passionate, young person who wants to be a chef gets every chance to do just that, regardless who they are and where they live.

Winners will be eligible to compete in the Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge to be held later in the year. (Some fundraising is required by the winning school). Successful teams from both High School and College categories will be recognized, but only one overall winner. The participating Schools of the ACT and regions have performed well in all facets of this competition in recent years and we have no doubt that this will continue.


Each year the Australian Culinary Federation (ACF) conducts a cooking competition for secondary school students in each Australian state. 2017 is the first time it will be held in Tasmania. The aim of this competition is to give students an insight into the hospitality industry and to identify and encourage students who demonstrate a talent and a passion for cooking. This competition also opens the doors for competitors for future training and employment.


Junior Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge 

This competition is designed to establish and develop links between school and industry in an effort to encourage more students to enter the commercial cookery industry. The JSSCC 2017 will incorporate Cairns, Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Townsville, Brisbane North and Brisbane South regions. This competition is the property of the Australian Culinary Federation Queensland and the medals and trophies that are attained within this competition are fully industry recognized.

Senior Schools Culinary Challenge 

The SSCC is a competition for year 11 and 12 students studying Home Economics or Hospitality at high school. It objective is to give culinary students an indication of the pleasures, challenges, excitement and gravity that can accompany a career as a cook or chef. Pairs of students will represent their school and battle it out against some of the most talented young cooks in Queensland.
