Everyone knows of the Australian cooking show Masterchef, and Australia’s reputation as a food and wine destination. The Australian High Commission brought the flavour of Australia’s great food and wine to Colombo on 2 June at the Culinary Art Expo, Sri Lanka’s leading food and beverage exhibition.

Demand for Australian meat continues to grow in Sri Lanka. This is not surprising – Australia has a proud record of producing some of the finest meat in the world, raised and processed to stringent standards, and with an extensive range of options. 

The Culinary Art Expo featured a Butchery Masterclass, using high quality Australian lamb and beef.  Leading local chefs taught participants knife skills and master cuts.  The Butchery Masterclass was supported by Maybury Fine Foods Lanka.

Premium Australian wine was showcased by an experienced sommelier at another event.  Presented by International Distillers Limited and Australian Vintage Limited, these wines won praise for their quality and value, sense of place and diversity of style. 

Australian culinary skills and training offerings were highlighted in a video presentation by TAFE South Australia, one of the country’s largest vocational education providers.  TAFE South Australia’s International Centre for Hospitality, Tourism and Food Studies is an integral part of South Australia’s thriving food and wine industry. 

As Sri Lanka’s tourism and hospitality sectors grow, Australia is ideally placed to meet the demand for premium food and beverage products. Australia has the fresh produce the industry demands.  And Australia has the skills and education capability needed to drive Sri Lankan hospitality to the next level, to give Sri Lankans and visitors alike a fantastic food and wine experience.
