Apprentices, its time to get creating!

Ocean Choice Scallops and Bidfood Australia are offering a unique chance for apprentice chefs to showcase their culinary creations and win an invaluable, career-changing experience.

Harvested from the icy waters of the North Atlantic, Ocean Choice Canadian Scallops provide a high quality option for your menu. Hand shucked and dry frozen at sea for maximum locked in freshness, these scallops have a natural sweetness and firm, yet tender, texture. The dry freeze method ensures, size and flavour are retained upon cooking and scallops are seared to perfection every time.



Create a new dish using Ocean Choice Canadian Scallops (126473 or 126476) purchased from Bidfood and either submit a photo and description to the judging panel by clicking the button below or post to Instagram using #OceanChoiceScallopsBidfood from 1 June 2018.
