The Nestlé Golden Chef’s Hat Award campaign had to be parked after Covid hit us all last year. It’s great to see it finally see the light of day. We are now in the full swing of rolling it out for Nestle Professional, who are helping inspire young chefs to create a little magic in the kitchen.
The award offers apprentice and junior chefs a unique opportunity to showcase their skills in rounds of live cook-offs, judged to global standards. 12 finalists will be selected across Australia and New Zealand, to bravely battle it out on the big stage in Sydney. One winner will take home the 2021 Golden Chef of the year title and a $10k cash prize.
It’s great to see a platform like this supporting our hospitality industry and emerging culinary talent after the pandemic took a swipe at it. The competition has been running since 1965, boosting some outstanding chefs’ careers and long may its alchemy continue.
