EVENTS AND COMPETITIONS

 

UPCOMING EVENTS AND COMPETITIONS

 

Hunter Culinary Association delivers a superior culinary experience across its annual calendar of events for its members and guests.

Each year, we organise two seasonal lunches, an autumn and spring lunch. The lunches begin with a workshop aimed at educating apprentices, members and guests about the new trends, produce and technology being used in the industry and our events consistently attract some of Australia’s finest guest chefs.

It is an opportunity for guest chefs to share their knowledge, talent, experience and passion with local apprentices, members and guests.

The annual Food Fight is the signature calendar event organised each year by Hunter Culinary Association. Four chefs, each at the top of their game, will prepare one lunch course. Each course will be matched with a Hunter Valley wine, and guests will be tasked with voting for the dish they preferred at the end of the gourmet feast.

Hunter Culinary Association also runs competitions, scholarships and award programs as well as Produce Tours and workshops. See full calendar of events below.
