Rather recently I found out there is an annual Pastry and Pizza Challenge that has been going on since 2008.
The Challenge is organised as part of Fonterra’s commitment to encourage budding chefs by offering them an opportunity to showcase their culinary skills whilst competing with the crème de le crème of the industry.
In other words, they are competing on an international level.
This year I was invited to the prize giving ceremony and had some time to get acquainted with the workings of this annual competition. As a foodie, I appreciate any given opportunity to meet aspiring and current chefs; especially local talented ones.
