oceanafestThe 2015 WA Oceanafest, Australia’s only International Culinary Competition, consisted of international teams competing in a live restaurant environment and individual chefs competing in live cookery and food and beverage competitions.
The event has been running now for 16 years, with this year being the first to introduce a trade show. The trade show gave WA’s hospitality suppliers the opportunity to exhibit their products to the industry.
The Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre hosted the event, and also received the award for ‘Most Outstanding Establishment’, which was presented by the Australian Culinary Federation.
The competition is recognised by the World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS), as a continental event and as such is subject to WACS competition rules & guidelines. The aim of the competition is to assess the culinary skills and abilities of Chefs, Cooks, Pastry Chefs, Apprentices, Armed Forces Personnel, Industrial Caterers, Training Providers and Home Cake Decorators.
The live & static competitions were contested by over 130 entrants across the 3 days, with medals being awarded in all sections & the trophies being presented at a cocktail party at Frasers Restaurant, Kings Park.
