The Australian Culinary Federation NSW ACT & Regions National Team Fundraiser

An exciting night is planned, and it’s all for a great cause – to support the ACF culinary team for the upcoming Culinary World Cup

During this showcasing event on Monday October 24, you can expect to be served delicious canapes prepared and served by the culinary team, AND {Insert drum roll} we have a very special guest dropping by to cook his tasty and famous paella – Miguel Maestre.

Having worked for many years in various kitchens around the world, Miguel Maestre is one talented Spaniard who has made Sydney his home. Born in Murcia in the south of Spain, his love for food was pre-determined from a young age. Miguel’s passion for food and life is infectious, and he has developed a talent for incorporating Spanish ingredients and cooking styles into his Australian menus.


In November 2022, the ACF National Youth and Community Catering teams were selected to compete in the Villeroy & Boch Culinary World Cup, the first International competition since Covid-19 for Australia.

This is a great honour and is based on the team’s previous records. This competition is the Culinary World Cup, a premier event organised by the Vatel Chefs Club of Luxembourg and attracts top teams from all over the world!

This year the squad begins their Journey for Gold, comprised of ACF member chefs from all around Australia, who have exhibited excellence in culinary skills with the support from their respective employers, parents, and their Training Providers; these chefs have committed to representing Australia. 

They are required to give up many hours of their time to achieve the highest standards possible and do not receive any remuneration for it.

We have commenced fundraising and are seeking your support to raise $150,000 just for the teams and support crew to compete in Luxembourg and for expenses in the lead-up to the World Cup, as the squad will be meeting regularly for training in cities across Australia.

Any amount will be gratefully accepted and help us on our journey – Go Aussies.
Thank you from our Teams.
