Secret MasterChef hopefuls will be buzzing like bees around a honeypot when Lennox Head cook and supermum Jules Allen hosts a cooking demonstration at Sample Food Festival on Saturday morning.

And while they are bound to come away with some fantastic tips, tricks and maybe some tastes from the MasterChef finalist, they may even score something more exciting.

Also attending the demo will be none other than MasterChef’s chief scout, Abbie Price, on the lookout for the next crop of MasterChef hopefuls.

Jules will be cooking up a storm from 10am but Abbie will be on the lookout all day long.

Other not-to-miss cooking demos during the festival include Clayton Donovan (Jaaning Tree), Gavin Hughes (Byron at Byron Resort and Spa), Katrina Kanetani (Town), Steve Snow (FINS), Ilias the Greek, and Dennis Baker (Quattro).

Sample will open at 8am, with the Bangalow/Byron Farmers market relocating to the site for the day.

The Byron Bay Cookbook will be launched at 11am.

And of course there will be some 55 sample plates, from 25 of the region’s best restaurants and caterers, on sale at lunchtime.

Sample Festival takes place at the Bangalow Showgrounds from 8am to 4pm.
