Pan Pacific Melbourne hosted the June Chaine de Rôtisseurs VIC Bailage 2020 AGM event. It was a star-studded evening attended by industry leaders and top food aficionados from the country in yet another meticulously planned event by Chaine de Rôtisseurs VIC Bailliage.

We celebrated our 2022 Australian Young Chef Competition winner, Ryan Cosentino. Ryan is representing Australia in the finals in October in Mexico City, competing against Chef contestants from 18 different countries, we wish him all the best. We congratulated finalist Chef Kimberly Tang who shared her insights gained throughout the competition and her journey to becoming an accomplished Chef. A big thanks to members Bailli Daman Shrivastav, Head Coach Tom Milligan, Dale Lyman and Mark Sweeting for their guidance and support in helping contestants prepare and compete at their best and at the highest levels.
Members got the opportunity to introduce their guests and all guests were warmly welcomed. The formalities closed with industry leaders, members and guests continuing to network, enjoy the cocktails and savour the array of mouth-watering hors d’ oeuvres which included cured Kingfish, Foie Gras toasties, Laksa king prawns, Pork belly and so much more. To wash down this smorgasbord of delicacies a fine selection of sparkles and regional wines were enjoyed.
