It provides trainee chefs a unique opportunity outside of their normal working environment to learn, develop new skills and be mentored by some of the best chefs in Australia.
Thirty two successful applicants will participate in a three day all expenses paid event in Melbourne where they will experience find dining, network with industry leaders, participate in culinary Master Classes and work with a food photographer to bring an original recipe to life.
One standout trainee chef will be crowned winner of the 2013 Fonterra Proud to be a Chef event and will win an international culinary scholarship tailored to their individual aspirations as a professional chef.
To get to Melbourne you'll need to compete in a semi-final cook off in Auckland on 21st November. Judged by 4 top NZ chefs, 10 semi-finalists will be flown to Auckland to cook their submitted recipe and progress through a series of skill tests. Four lucky trainee chefs will then win places in the Melbourne final. The successful NZ applicants will receive return flights to Melbourne, with 3 nights hotel accommodation including transfers and 3 nights dining at award winning Melbourne restaurants.
This once in a lifetime opportunity is available to trainee chefs 18 years of age or older who are enrolled in a culinary course as at 25th February, 2013.
