Entries Open- 2018 Callebaut Sydney Royal Chocolate Show

15 May 2018

Entries will open today for the most decadent competition on the Sydney Royal calendar, the 2018 Callebaut Sydney Royal Chocolate Show. For the first time this prestigious competition will take place alongside the smooth festival of chocolate at Sydney Showground, capping a perfect weekend of all things chocolate. Chair of Judges and 2018 Champion of the RAS (Royal Agricultural Society of NSW) Jodie Van Der Velden has welcomed the move to allow the public to see what has in the past been a behind-closed-doors judging process. “For the first time the public will be able to witness the mechanics of the judging process and see firsthand the substantial commitment and professionalism of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW,” Ms Van Der Velden said. Last year’s competition saw entrants from around the nation judged across 22 classes. Classes range from chocolate blocks to truffles, chilli chocolate and handcrafted showpieces built on-site and against the clock. Expert judges will assess entrants based on taste, texture, smoothness and innovation (flavour and texture). A unique aspect of the Callebaut Sydney Royal Chocolate Show is its focus on student categories, providing apprentice chocolatiers the chance to further develop their skills. “The creation of our student category is one of my proudest accomplishments,” said Jodie Van Der Velden. “The key in raising the quality of products in our industry ideally starts with our future leaders and their grounding in quality training,” she said. Prizes include training packages for winners to further their specific industry skills, among these the acclaimed Callebaut Belgian Chocolate Academy. Entries for the Callebaut Sydney Royal Chocolate Show close 5 pm Wednesday June 13, 2018. Further details can be found at: www.sydneyroyal.com.au/chocolate Judging will take place at the smooth festival of chocolate on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of September at Sydney Showground.

Entries Open for Sydney Royal Beer and Cider Show

19 Apr 2018

One of the fastest growing industries in Australia, the Beer and Cider sector is about to take centre stage once again via the prestigious Sydney Royal Beer and Cider Show.   Entries have now opened for what is each becoming an increasingly diverse and exciting industry in Australia and gaining acclaim around the world.   In 2018, esteemed Sydney Royal judges will taste and award entries from 40 classes that include bottled and draught beers and ciders.   Chair of Judges for the 2018 Beer and Cider Show Neal Cameron says this competition serves several purposes;   “Of course the Sydney Royal Beer and Cider Show sets out to recognise and celebrate the very best product and producers we have in Australia, but it also offers up-and-coming beer and cider makers an opportunity to gain individual feedback from our expert judges,” Neal Cameron said.   “It is a rapidly expanding sector which lends itself to seemingly endless creative options and that is why last year for the first time we introduced a dedicated Experimental and Specialty Beer Champion category,” he said.   In 2017 Hope Brewhouse earned the title of Champion within this category for its superb Barrel-Aged Extra Stout.   “We also encourage Sours to be entered into the Experimental & Specialty classes this year, reflecting the growth of the affection for this style of Beer by brewers and drinkers alike”. Entries for this year’s Sydney Royal Beer and Cider Show close at 5pm, Wednesday 16 th of May 2018.     Further details can be found at: www.sydneyroyal.com.au/beercider   The judging will take place on the new date of Tuesday the 24 th July, 2018 in the Southee Pavilion at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.   The Awards Presentation will take place in Hall 6 Sydney Showground on Saturday, 11 th of August, 2018 from 12pm at the public tasting event; Grape, Grain & Graze Festival. < Ends >   For further information please contact: Roger White Manager, Public Relations Royal Agricultural Society of NSW t (02) 9704 1453 m 0478 092 425 e rwhite@rasnsw.com.au Read more
