Young Chefs' Club

The Young Chefs' Club here in New Zealand is open to all young chefs under the age of 25. It has been established in line with the Worldchefs Young Chefs Club guiding four pillars of friendship, education, cuisine and culture. The aim of the Club is to provide opportunities for friendship, education, career development and mentoring, whilst also striving for culinary excellence and cultural and sustainable understanding of the world we live in, through working with food. 
Throughout the year there will be culinary competitions, workshops, Masterclasses, fundraising dinners, open days, site visits to specialty producers and many more exciting events – all of these will be posted­ on the YCC Events page and put on the YCC Facebook page.
If this is something you want to be a part of, join Young Chefs
here. You will be directed to Training membership. Training membership is for any young chef training and under the age of 25.
