Nestlé Golden Chef's Hat Awards
The Nestlé GOLDEN CHEF’S HAT AWARD is the only national chef competition dedicated to the development of apprentices and is open to junior and apprentice chefs under the age of 25 years. It is the longest running sponsorship for Nestlé with the first event held in 1966.
When you enter the Nestlé GOLDEN CHEF'S HAT AWARD, not only do you stand to win an international prize trip to the 2012 Culinary Olympics in Germany valued at $15,000, you will be cooking from the get-go; putting your skills up against your peers, benchmarking your skills at every level and really finding out where you are as a chef.
Finalists compete in a series of ‘mystery box’ regional cook-offs, with the regional winners receiving an all expenses paid trip to Melbourne to compete in the national cook-off, to be held during Fine Food 2012 in September. All competitors are eligible to win medals of achievement in culinary excellence in entrée, main and dessert course categories. Along the way, you will be mentored by professional chefs and culinary instructors who will open doors for you to network with key players in the culinary world.
