A strong baking contingent joined wine merchants, gourmet food purveyors and the hospitality industry at this year’s Sa hotel and Restaurant trade Show.
A large range of equipment for the baking sector was on show, as well as baked products for the wider food service industry, supplied by the likes of Balfour, Kyton Bakery and all Bake Services.
attracting bakers, pastry chefs, chocolatiers and confectioners from adelaide and regional South australia, the Sa hotel and Restaurant trade Show was an excellent opportunity for the state’s food professionals to expand their network.
demonstrations were also held by a number of TAFESA lecturers from hospitality, cookery, bakery, artisan cheese and patisserie schools. TAFESA education manager bakery and patisserie Fee Lee said visiting bakers benefited from hands-on tips.
“TAFESA lecturers stepped audiences through processing sourdough, artisan bread, new takes on cupcake flavours and finishing techniques,” Fee said.
“at the TAFESA stand, sourdough made by bakery students was accompanied by beer, wine and cheese also made by our students. Visitors experienced the high-quality products, which included 15-month old pecorino and romano cheeses, matured cheddar and cambered cheese.
“It was an excellent indicator of what the future holds for a state that is renowned for its uncompromising food culture.”
