“Jack was super excited once l told him the news, he will get the experience of a life time at Beef Australia and as our young Chef Ambassador, Jack will learn all about our great beef industry and why our beef is the best in the world.  As well as this Jack will learn about diversity of the carcase and all the different ways it can be cooked and enjoyed, including my personal favourite the Bavette” says Celebrity Chef Coordinator, Shane Bailey.

Beef Australia is the only one of it’s kind in Australia, held triennially, the expo attracted more than 90,000 visitors in 2015 with over 1100 registered International delegates and injecting $74 million into the economy.

The competition attracted entries from around Australia, that had to be original, whilst utilising a tasty cut of Australian Beef and accompany a detailed step-by-step recipe.  “Jack’s dish was beautifully presented with the main star in this dish of course being the delicious cut of Flat Iron steak” says Shane.
