Young Waiter & Young Chef National Finalists 2016

We’ve had the pleasure over the last few weeks to meet some wonderfully talented young waiters & chef’s who were selected to take part in national judging for Electrolux Australian Young Waiter & Young Chef 2016. It’s not all judging, there has been masterclasses, industry talks with the judges about hospitality as an industry & career and casual networking dinners. Each and every chef and waiter involved should be incredibly proud of themselves for their passion and commitment shown. After a few days of  judging, we are pleased to announce the National Finalist’s in each category.
