The Hunter Culinary Association is set to host ultimate Food Fight, which will see four chefs battle it out for glory.

The event returns to the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, Pokolbin, on Monday 28 June after a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

Sydney chefs Andrew Wandless from Merivale’s Una Más and Alex Prichard from Icebergs Dining Room and Bar will compete against the Hunter’s Mitchell Beswick from Muse Restaurant and Sam Alexander from Yellow Billy Restaurant.

Each chef will prepare a lunch course that will be paired with a Hunter Valley wine, with the winning dish determined by attendees, who will cast their vote after the feast concludes.

The 2021 event marks the 11th iteration of the Food Fight, which raises money for the Hunter Culinary Association’s Brett Graham Scholarship as well as other support and mentoring opportunities for young talent.

Tickets are now on sale and are priced at $175 for Hunter Culinary members; $90 for apprentices and $195 for non-members.
