It has been two years since the Food Services Tradeshow has graced us at the Royal Exhibition Building. This year it will be busting at the seams with two full floors of exhibitors showing their wares in what is set to be three massive days of trade.

Some new features this year include:

  • Bocuse d’Or – Regarded as the greatest cooking competition in the world. It runs every second year in France with competitors from around the world. But to get there they need to be selected at country level. This year for the very first time the Australian selections for the Bocuse d’Or will take place at Foodservice Australia. You can come along on Tuesday 30 May and watch the top four candidates compete in a grueling six hour test of skill and stamina.
  • Savour Patissier of the Year – An exciting competition that brings together Australia’s best pastry chefs to compete for the title and incredible prizes including $10,000 cash. International judges will include: Christophe Michalak, Antonio Bachour andJordi Roca.
