ACC Culinary Competition

Parade College has taken out the 2022 ACC Culinary Competition. Parade edged out Whitefriars College and Mazenod College to claim this year’s title. All schools that were represented cooked up a storm, producing high quality dishes that impressed the judges. This year we were lucky to have judges from the Australian Culinary Federation (ACF) to help decide the 2022 champion. The event was held at Parade College this year. The hospitality from the staff and students was outstanding, making all that were involved feel at home. A big thanks to Parade for a fantastic day.
