Earlier last month, some of country’s best and finest food producers gathered under one roof at the MasterChef set for one of the biggest nights in the industry: The Australian Food Awards presentation dinner, 2018.

Accompanying the presentation was a delightful three course dinner crafted by The Atlantic’s Executive Chef Nick Malook and the finest produce on hand. Dishes featured ingredients from the medal-winning listing in its purest form, highlighting the sensational quality of the produce and allowing them to shine on the plate. The results? Absolutely delicious. You can check out the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria website for the full list of winners, and hunt down the products for yourself!
