Cookery Competition


The Royal Adelaide Show Cookery Competition is a family favourite both for exhibitors and Show goers.

With almost 30 categories and over 190 different classes to choose from why not brush up on the family favourites or try something new and become an exhibitor in one of the biggest Competitions of the Show.

The 2022 feature classes will see the humble Carrot Cake take centre stage, along with the opportunity for exhibitors to create something spectacular in the Afternoon Tea for Two class.

For those cake decorators out there, 2022 sees several new themes including Tropical Weddings, Shoes and dinosaurs, so make sure you check the schedule carefully as these are just a few of the new ones.

The Competition Schedule is your source of all important information, so if you are new to the competition or have been involved before make sure you take the time to read through the schedule.

Entries close on Friday 24 June at 5pm CST so don’t delay, get your entries in now.


This session will be held on Wednesday 25 May from 2.30pm to 4.00pm and is a great opportunity to find out more about the competition and speak with some of the judges.
