Appetite for Excellence

Electrolux Young Chef, Electrolux Young Waiter, Electrolux Young Restaurateur Applications open for Electrolux Appetite for Excellence 2011 on Monday, 21 February. This is the ultimate national awards program for young hospitality professionals. The Awards have garnered firm support from Australia’s culinary heavyweights with a highly acclaimed panel of judges, supporters and mentors including Guy Grossi, Chris Taylor, Peter Gilmore, Mark Best, Christine Manfield, Philip Johnson and Luke Mangan.

Searching Australia for emerging talent within the restaurant and catering industry, the Awards are more than a competition. They aim to inspire and support future industry leaders through unique educational elements, career opportunities and enviable prizes. “Every year the judges work together to develop new program features, increasing the support and encouragement for young professionals working in the hospitality industry. The program does have a competition focus but it’s more than that. It’s about giving these young people the opportunities to expand their knowledge, boost their confidence and give them recognition. This will hopefully help them in their careers as well as grow Australia’s hospitality industry from strength to strength,” said Luke Mangan.
