Calling region’s top young chefs…

Working in Central Queensland, surrounded by prime cattle grazing country, our chefs and apprentice chefs have the opportunity to work with some of the best cuts of beef in the world – and their skill with the cow could win them a chance to cook beside the best chefs in the country! 

Beef Australia 2018 is opening up the kitchen to the younger generation of cooks aged 16 – 27 with the Young Chef Ambassador Competition.

“It provides one lucky young chef the unique opportunity to work alongside our Celebrity Chefs from around the globe in the Beef Australia 2018 Celebrity Chef Restaurant.  They will also experience all the fun and excitement of the event alongside our Celebrity Chefs, cooking the best beef in the world.” Celebrity Chef Coordinator, Shane Bailey said.

To enter the competition, you must submit a recipe to Beef Australia. They are looking for exceptional talent, innovative skills and creativity in these recipes which must utilise secondary cuts, whilst show-casing and celebrating Australian beef.

Young chefs and apprentices are encouraged to send in their original recipes to be considered for the competition.  Judges will then recreate these recipes and judge based on the flavours, style and creativity.

Prizes include a combi-oven valued at $1700 to be donated to the winning chef’s restaurant as well as the chance to cook with the stars at Beef Australia.

The winner will get to experience Beef Australia 2018 firsthand, for 3 days between the 6th and 12th of May, 2018.  They will also be given the opportunity to cook alongside the Celebrity Chefs, including Curtis Stone, Iron Chef Sakai, Ben O’Donoghue, Matt Golinski and Dominique Rizzo.

Australia’s national beef expo is held just once every three years in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia.

Beef Australia 2018 will be held from May 6 to 12 and will be a celebration of all facets of the Australian beef industry. It will feature more than 4500 cattle from over 30 breeds; a trade fair promoting more than 500 businesses; a symposium, seminars and property tours to deliver new research information to producers; and restaurants, celebrity chefs and cooking demonstrations for visitors to appreciate the quality and flavour of Australian beef.
