We're supporting the culinary leaders of tomorrow.

 

We want to support the Australian foodservice sector through the recognition, professional development and ongoing support of today’s apprentices.

Every year we select a group of Australia’s most talented apprentice chefs to participate in our Proud to be a Chef  program. It’s part of our commitment to the foodservice industry and culinary standards in Australia.

Proud to be a Chef  is a diverse and fast-paced mentoring program led by inspirational, Australian masterchefs, and gives each finalist the chance to foster life-long relationships within the foodservice community.

The winning apprentice receives a culinary scholarship tailored to their personal interests and goals as a professional chef.
