Fostering young talent in any industry is an important initiative. It cultivates innovation, enthusiasm and motivation and that can only be a good thing.
The Electrolux Appetite for Excellence program recognises not only young chefs, but waiters and entrepreneurs who show the most promise within the Australian industry each year.
The finalists have just been announced, among them, our very own [TOYS] member Louise Tamayo from Becasse.
Chef finalists include Soren Lascelles, sous chef from Sydney's Assiette, Emma Shearer from Adelaide's The Manse and Danika Heslop from Quay.
