Entries close soon for Chef of the Year

The competition is running from 23-25 October as part of the huge Foodservice Australia exhibition at Darling Harbour in Sydney. From an expected 180 entries the top 32 will be chosen to compete live in four kitchens built on the show floor.

Chefs will be given a mystery box of ingredients and one hour of cooking time. Their challenge is to prepare their two best dishes and impress the judges. Their scores will be based on taste, presentation, innovation, technique and efficiency.

The top four chefs will compete on the last day of the show in a huge Grand Final. The winner will take home a trophy, cheque and Unox oven. There is $10,000 cash to be shared as well as great prizes. Every finalist takes home their jacket and some amazing memories.
