The Taste of Australia Culinary Competition brings together teams of young, emerging Vietnamese chefs to compete in a nationwide contest of cooking ability. Taking place over two action packed days, six teams of two will compete at the heat stage in skills and mystery box challenges. Heats will be held in Hanoi, Danang, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City. The winner of each heat progresses to the 24 May final in Ho Chi Minh City, where their culinary skills will be assessed by celebrity Australian-Vietnamese chef Ngo Thanh Hoa. The winning team members will receive a one-year scholarship to the Blue Mountains International Management School in Australia.
