Test­ing time for award hope­fuls

Tasmanian Country - - NEWS -

Judge Kirsten Ba­con, hospitality and foods teacher at El­iz­a­beth Col­lege in Ho­bart, was as­sisted by stu­dents from the col­lege in stew­ard­ing at the awards at the show­grounds.

“The food in­dus­try plays an enor­mous part in our life­style and new trends are con­stantly emerg­ing. The food awards re­flect th­ese trends and set bench­marks,” Ms Ba­con said.

“Stu­dents get the op­por­tu­nity to learn from ex­perts and have con­ver­sa­tions with key in­dus­try per­son­nel that could lead to work op­por­tu­ni­ties or other ex­cit­ing ven­tures.”

Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety of Tas­ma­nia ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Scott Gadd said the awards, which RAST cre­ated more than 20 years ago, went smoothly.

“Food be­ing judged rep­re­sents just about every­thing we eat. We re­ally do have a strong in­dus­try in this state,” Mr Gadd said.
