Year 10 students around the Sunshine Coast showcased their talents before the “Queensland Junior Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge” at the Coastal Cookery Trade Training Centre. Each team has been working alongside local chefs in creating their competition dish. The Master Class involves hands on cooking, gaining some tips straight from competition judges on how to maximize their chances to score highly in the state and regional cookery competition. This event provides an opportunity for hospitality students to get a taste of the pleasures, excitement and the professionalism that can accompany a career as a future chef while being coached by an industry professional.
The culinary challenge is being coordinated in the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay regions by Sustainable Partnerships Australia (SPA) in association with the Australian Culinary Federation (ACF).
