Bake Skills Australia
Bake Skills Australia is a prestigious competition that aims to support quality, training and professionalism in baking and is specifically structured to showcase the talents of our younger generation of bakers and pastry chefs.
Originally launched as a marketing initiative for TAFE colleges by the Australian Wheat Board in 1993, the competition came under the wing of Allstates DCP Marketing Services in 1995, which in turn formed an alliance with Diversified Exhibitions to take the competition into the mainstream arena of the Fine Food show.
The extra exposure helped to not only raise the profile of competitors and the participating TAFE Institutes, but also to lift the competition to become the premier national event for the Australian baking industry.
In 2018, following industry feedback, the event progressed from a team event, to providing individual championship opportunities for both pastry chefs and bakers.
To represent their employer; their TAFE and their State and compete in the Bake Skills Australia Nationals, competitors must be aged between 18 and 26 years at the start and conclusion of the national competition each year.
The Bake Skills Australia competition has been blessed from inception in having a selection of talented and qualified men and women available to join the judging panel each year. The committee endeavours to select a judging panel each year from throughout Australia to provide balance, quality and of course, impartiality in assessment.
