The GOLDEN EMPANADA trophy is the holy grail for Melbourne’s empanada chefs.
There are two awards. The PROFESSIONAL section, judged by some of Melbourne’s food luminaries, and the PEOPLE’S CHOICE section, judged by the people. Competition is fierce, and both trophies are hotly contested on the day.
Contenders for the 2018 GOLDEN EMPANADA competition will be revealed soon.
THE ARGENTINIAN DELEGATION
There’s nobody better placed to present the GOLDEN EMPANADA trophy than Argentinian Ambassador Hugo Gobbi and Minister Eduardo Acevedo Diaz, who join us in Melbourne every year. Hold on to your empanadas, people. These guys are royalty.
