Each year the Australian Culinary Federation (ACF) conducts a cooking competition for Secondary School Students in each Australian state. 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.

The competition is open to unlimited entries from each school. 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.

The team to score the highest points over all three competition locations will compete at the National Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge. The ACF will cover the cost of registration and entry fees. (Schools competing at state or International level will need to cover the cost of their own airfares) The time and location of state, National (August) and international (late September/early October) competitions will be announced in due course.

If for any reason the winning school is unable to continue competing in state and /or international level, the first runner-up will be given the opportunity.
