Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown, The Culinary Arts Development Trust (CADT) had to cancel all National Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge (NSSCC) regional events and the grand final.

Instead, CADT have replaced these events with the At Home online competition.

The trust is running this competition for four weeks. Entries are received Monday to Friday with Judging on Saturday and winner announcement on Sunday.

The CADT is a non-profit charitable trust formed in January 2015 by a trio of industry professionals to help expand the hospitality industry through competitions, events and community activities.

The CADT promotes the culinary arts in New Zealand as a career option for anyone interested in developing their professional experience through culinary competitions. Working with local councils, government bodies and communities, the CADT encourages, fosters and oversees New Zealand culinary talent and the creation of relationships within the industry, with an overall awareness on healthy eating and nutrition.

Two winners of the competition are announced each week, each prize winner will receive a supermarket voucher valued at $100.00.
