Eat Easy Judging Day: Great Food, Great Stories, Great People

Whoaaa! What a day! 

We were absolutely blown away by the quality and quantity of entries for our inaugural Eat Easy Awards. A big thank you to all of the producers who took the time to submit their produce to be tasted by an expert team of food identities from across the country at Africola in Adelaide.

If there is anything our judges love more than food, it’s getting together to discuss the produce and the people that have shaped the industry we have today.

Across the day we were amazed by the stories that accompanied the plates when judges sat down to taste. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the producers and hospitality workers who go above and beyond to shape the industry. We cannot wait to share you their stories

A little recap on how the day worked. The talented team at Africola sorted all the products to be tasted with like-minded products. From there, each product was served, prepared and cooked to suit the best serving instruction. Regardless of the type of produce, we can guarantee that your produce was in the best hands.

For all the producer categories, scores and notes have now been finalised and we have found the winners for this year’s Eat Easy Awards.

We have also shortlisted our nomination categories; Best FOH and Best Dining. This shortlist will be live in the coming weeks for the public to vote. Keep your eye on your emails and socials for more information.

So you want to know the winners? We will be announcing the winners in October in conjunction with our Drink Easy winners. This evening will be a celebration of producers, hospitality and the beverage industry. And each category winner will be taking home an iconic SMEG Mixer valued at $729. 

We will be sending more information closer to the date. All tasting notes will be returned to the producer following the awards.

A final massive thank you to our sponsors! Eat Easy wouldn’t be the same without your support!
