This Program Helps Talented Young Chefs Develop Into Industry Leaders

Applications are now open for the next annual intake. Here’s how to sign up.

Proud to Be a Chef has opened applications for its next annual intake. The program runs in early 2023 as an all-expenses-paid experience that gives 32 apprentice chefs access to masterclasses, skill workshops, networking opportunities and meals at some of the country’s best restaurants.

Participants will also get a farm trip to Victoria’s Gippsland region – home to some of the best farmers, growers and restaurant suppliers in Australia – where they’ll get to build their networks and learn about sourcing ingredients.

Some of the mentors on the roster include Anchor Food’s Mark Normoyle, Tonka head chef Kay-Lene Tan and Maha group head chef Daniel Giraldo. A gala dinner will be held on the last night of the program, and one standout chef will be receive a culinary scholarship tailored to their career. Other awards around cooking and use of social media will be handed out during the four-day program.

Applications are open now, closing on October 31, 2022. You can read more and apply here.
