The ‘Bob the Butcher’ feature of the festival involves acclaimed chefs providing a diverse range of cooking masterclasses as well as culinary business economics throughout the show.This year, the show has joined with local food promotion group Food Fossickers, to highlight the best regional produce and educate the public about the journey from paddock to plate.

Masons of Bendigo will also be holding a cooking demonstration.The event is suitable for families as well, even offering a Kids Cooking Challenge and a Kitchen Garden Program.
