Testing time for award hopefuls
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.
