SECONDARY SCHOOLS CULINARY CHALLENGE
The ACF regrets to announce that due to the uncertainty of International travel we will not be hosting the Paul Krantzcke International secondary Schools Competition in 2021. All other Australian events are planned to go ahead depending on covid restrictions.
Each year the Australian Culinary Federation (ACF) conducts a cooking competition for Secondary School Students in each Australian state. 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 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.
If you are in years 10, 11 or 12, enrolled in a Secondary School and are studying either a Hospitality or Commercial Cookery course, then you are eligible to enter your state competition. The winners of each State competition will be eligible to compete in the National Final
This National SSCC final will be held in the second weekend in August 2021, State, venue & dates TBC
