Miguel Maestre Throws His Hat in the Cake Bake Ring

Adding to the already jam packed celebrity schedule lined up for this year’s Cake Bake & Sweets Show, the event is thrilled to announce that Australia’s favourite Spaniard, Miguel Maestre, has joined the line up.

The popular TV Chef will not only demonstrate some of his most-loved dishes on the For the Love of Cooking stage, he will also bring a pop up version of his El Toro Loco restaurant to both shows.

Providing the perfect spot for visitors to take a break from the show floor and experience one of many savoury offerings at the event, the pop up venue will offer a full and adventurous menu. With a focus on choice, El Toro Loco will feature some of the dishes he’ll be demonstrating on stage, plus giant paella freshly cooked on site, Spanish style tapas, and his unique porchetta with soft bread and jamon jaffles.

Miguel is thrilled to be part of the show, saying, “We’ve never done an activation like this before, and it’s a big move for me to bring the restaurant back so I’m really excited. I want to bring a real restaurant experience to the show and its visitors.”

Despite the strong savoury offering at this year’s events, for those who are looking for a total sugar rush, Chocolate Masterclasses have also just been confirmed for both the Sydney and Melbourne shows. Presented by Callebaut chocolate and Le Cordon Bleu, the two iconic industry brands have teamed up to host a series of chocolate-focused demonstrations. With demonstrations showcasing the myriad of ways that chocolate can be used in all styles of cooking and baking, the masterclasses will give visitors the opportunity to learn the secrets behind how the country’s greatest patissiers make chocolate magic happen.

To celebrate all of this deliciousness, visitors can also toast themselves in the just announced [yellow tail] VIP Lounge, where the brand’s delightful range of wines and sparklings will be free flowing.

As the show draws nearer, Cake Bake & Sweet show continues to gather momentum and excitement with a line-up of international and national cooking celebrities, multiple stages and workshop opportunities, plus dedicated zones covering all things cooking and healthy living.
