Many of the foodies out there may be delighted to hear that Fine Food Australia will host its 30th year of exhibitions this September.

From the 9-12th of September, Fine Food will allow foodies the chance to speak with professional chefs and exhibitors and get advice on cooking, food and baking.

By attending the exhibition, you can also get news about the latest appliances and equipment that you can use to whip up a good meal.

But the exhibition is a 'trade-only' event meaning only those who work in the food, drink or equipment industries are able to be given access.

Apprentices who are registered or students who are enrolled in a hospitality course at a tertiary level are also welcome to attend.

Just be sure to have some form of identification on you with proof that you work in a food or beverage industry: or with proof that you work in an industry that makes kitchen appliances and equipment.

For those that are eligible to attend, there is some good news. If you pre-register here, you will be able to get in for free.

But pre-registration closes on the 29th of August and if you walk up to the door without registering, you will need to pay a $30 entrance fee.

Now for the foodies, let's move onto the fun stuff.

The event will showcase over 1,000 exhibitions: most of which are divided into the following sections;

Gourmet World

Puddings, sauces and preserves on display.
Condiments, antipasto and oils.

If you choose to attend, you will also see a barrage of contests this year such as;

-The Official Great Aussie Pie Competition- Who doesn't love a good Aussie pie? Well, this competition attracts thousands of entries from bakers across Australia. The standards are really high between the bakers and to win this competition brings prestige so if you enter, expect to bring your A Game.

-Australian Culinary Challenge- Known as the leading chef competition in Australia: top restaurants, chefs and apprentices will compete with one another to produce high standards of cooking and food presentation.

-Bakeskills Australia National Teams Competition- State teams will compete across 26 different product categories including; standard, specialty & artisan breads, croissants, brioche, several pastry products, special occasion cakes, fruit flans, desserts and premium chocolate offerings.

But there is no need to spur out a laundry list of events to see at the Fine Food Exhibition. If you'd like information on contests, seminars and shows that will be held, click here.
