After two successful years The Ballarat Agricultural and Pastoral Society proudly presents The Rural Lifestyle Expo 2014. Each year we exhibit and showcase the best produce from in and around Central Western Victoria with a celebration of artisan and gourmet eats and drinks.
This year’s Expo features an array of exciting new events, presentations and activities all highlighting our theme ingredient, the humble local potato. With potato fun for the kids, tutorials from industry professionals, local chef cook offs and master classes, local producer demonstrations and hands on displays, this year’s Expo is a must for all passionate food lovers and a great opportunity to join the Ballarat food movement.
2014 sees the introduction of the inaugural Ballarat Agricultural and Pastoral Society Paddock to Plate Awards. Proudly sponsored by Nature’s Cargo, the awards will celebrate the best stall-holders who meet the judging criteria in manufacturing and producing. Competitors will be judged by an expert panel for businesses aged naught to two years old and two years old and over. Awards will also be judged for best exhibitor, best chef, best demonstration and best display.
So get down to the showgrounds April 5th and join your host Simon Beaton in celebrating the regions best produce in Ballarat’s greatest food spectacular.
