The annual Food Fight is back once more | 28 Jun

What happens when four gun chefs with a raft of experience and talent from Sydney and the Hunter Valley go head-to-head after a year on the ropes?

Hunter Culinary Association’s Food Fight of course!

The annual Food Fight is the signature event organised by HCA and this year marks a triumphant return as the industry reunites after missing the 2020 edition due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s line-up promises to be as impressive as ever, with the chefs tasked with creating a standout dish to take out the prestigious title. Each chef will prepare one lunch course, which will be matched with a premium Hunter Valley wine. Guests will vote for their preferred dish at the conclusion of the lunch.

This year, chefs involved in the Food Fight are Mitchell Beswick of Muse Restaurant, Alex Prichard of Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, Sam Alexander of yellow Billy Restaurant, and Andrew Wandless of Una Más at Coogee Pavilion.

HCA’s Chairman Gus Maher said the 11th annual Food Fight makes a welcome return to the Hunter’s culinary event calendar, and will once again be hosted by the inimitable duo Colin Fassnidge and Matt Kemp, who are longtime supporters of the Hunter Culinary Association.

“This year marks an exciting return of our beloved signature event and we are thrilled to be back in action, especially after such a difficult year for our region and the hospitality industry at large in 2020,” Gus said.

The Food Fight is open for members of the public to attend and immerse themselves in this special gastronomic experience.

The annual Food Fight is part of the Hunter Valley Food & Wine Festival. This year’s program is a mix of more than 30 daily and weekly tastings and experiences, alongside unique one-off events.
