MCEC shines at Melbourne show

MCEC shines at Melbourne show Image

The chefs at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) were celebrating last month after taking out a champion trophy at the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards.

The win was for its house made vanilla yoghurt. The yoghurt beat over 30 other entries across the country, including entries from Bulla Dairy foods and King Island dairy.

MCEC executive chef Tony Panetta said the entire team was thrilled with the result and that the award was great acknowledgement of its skills.

“Visitors are regularly surprised that our venue has an in-house team of chefs who produce their own menu items and dishes from scratch and to be recognized in this way is a huge accomplishment,” Mr Panetta said.

MCEC chief executive Peter King said his team was unique and deserved this honour.

“It’s unique for a business events venue to take out awards like these and our kitchen team should be congratulated on such a significant achievement,” Mr King said.

The vanilla yoghurt is now entered into the 2013 Australian Grand Dairy awards.
