Australia’s Executive Chefs Club, is championing an industry initiative which will recognise and reward the extraordinary talent of our country’s best Executive Chefs. Executive Chefs are multi-skilled professionals charged with culinary creative excellence, commercial nous, leadership skills, team management - often across large kitchens.
The Executive Chef of the Year competition is open to all Australian Executive Chefs and Chefs de Cuisines. The Gold Winner will receive a Professional ‘Priceless’ Food Tour of Spain and two Highly Commended Chefs will win a Culinary Odyssey to the Spencer Gulf, Australia’s seafood frontier.

The final round will be judged in Melbourne by celebrity chef Scott Pickett of Estelle Bistro.
