The Foodservice Australia 2014 exhibition was held at the Royal Hall of Industries in Moore Park, Sydney, from Sunday 25 to Tuesday 27 May 2014 with 160 exhibitors showcasing the latest food, drink and equipment.
Over 4600 industry professionals attended the event. For Alsco this was the perfect opportunity to meet potential new customers while catching up with existing ones.
Visitors enjoyed food demonstrations and special events with a new café school proving popular. All the events attracted record entries and big crowds.
As in previous years Alsco was once again a proud sponsor of the “Rare Medium Chef of the Year.” This prestigious annual competition attracts entries from professional chefs from around Australia and is a highly regarded and highly competitive event.
The competition ran over three days on the show floor in four live kitchens. All 32 chefs, dressed in Alsco chefs gear, competed against each other and the clock to prepare their best dishes from a mystery box of ingredients.
This year a new knock out format was introduced where chefs had to make the heats to reach the Grand Final. After a tough battle it was Matthew McCool from Altitude Restaurant (NSW), Travis Goodiet from The Courthouse Hotel (VIC) who made it through to the Grand Final.
After a very tense and close battle to cook for the title in front of a captive audience it was Matthew McCool from Altitude Restaurant (NSW), who took the trophy and the prize money.
Of course, thanks must go to Deane Apparel for providing the chefs gear for the competition and making the chefs look so smart.
Next year this popular event move to Melbourne.
