Electrolux Appetite for Excellence is Australia’s only national hospitality awards program that recognises and awards talented chefs, waiters and restaurateurs who are the next generation of industry leaders. Now in the 12th year, the program continues to inspire young culinary talent by providing money-can’t-buy educational opportunities, unique experiences and enviable prizes, with the ultimate objective of creating a sustainable industry for young professionals and the industry alike.

To help find the future stars of the culinary world, we’re fortunate to have the support of some of Australia’s most inspirational, passionate and prestigious restaurateurs, chefs and industry leaders. it’s through them, our judges, that we’re able to offer the encouragement and inspiration needed in order to achieve excellence throughout the industry.

The Electrolux Appetite for Excellence application process commences in January and culminates in the crowning of the young chef, young waiter and young restaurateur of the year 2017 at a star-studded awards night in Sydney in August.
