The 27th Annual Chef of the Year Competition


The 27th Annual Chef of the Year competition was held in October 2007; 18 prestige chefs from around Western Australia competed against each other. The competition comprised of 3 heats with 6 competitors in each.

Each competitor was required to prepare and cook 4 serves of entrees using salmon and pasta and 4 serves of dessert using pastry, eggs and fresh fruit. For the main course chefs were given a black box which contained the main ingredients, and then allocated 1 hour prior to the commencement of cooking to plan the main meal menu. The ingredients include 1 secondary cut of meat and 8 to 9 vegetables. All ingredients must be used in the 4 serves of main meal. The competition is bound by time limit rules which are common across all states of Australia to ensure a National standard. Competitors who do not meet the time limits receive a judging point penalty.

Livio Barilaro
Livio Barilaro, ASTHM Senior Apprentice Lecturer, entered the 2007 competition and was in heat 3, where the black box meat was a whole chicken. For entrée Livio prepared an infused salmon with lime and herb on greens and a hand-made ravioli filled with conga potatoes, spinach, ricotta and a yolk of a quail egg. For main, a roulade of chicken with braised leek, roast garlic potato cake and turned vegetables. And for dessert, a trio tasting plate of chocolate mousse and drunken strawberries, apple strudel with custard and an apricot soufflé with an apricot glaze.

Competition dishes


After all 3 heats, the judges scores are tallied and the top 4 competitors move forward to the final. Livio was one of those hard working chefs who were put through. The final requires chefs to cook the same entrée and dessert as in the heats and the contents of the black box is changed. The finals black box was beef rump which Livio rolled and filled with a mushroom farce which was braised and served with a piped potato cake and a grilled vegetable salad, with a braising liquor reduction as sauce.

Once the final competitors have finished the judges final scores are tallied and they deliberate to reach a final decision on the winner and placing. This year, the National Judge announced the competition was very close and that there were only a few points separating the finalists. The judges were highly impressed with the standard produced in WA and thought that the finalists could have taken out first place in any other state. Livio was awarded 3rd place.

3rd Place

Congratulations Livio!
