Our award partners and sponsors play an important role in supporting Golden Chef’s culinary talent by providing vital prize funding, sharing in our vision to support the future of the industry, and celebrating young chefs striking out to make their mark and take their careers to the next level.

Thank you to our sponsors and event supporters who have helped us in shaping this year’s competition, to make it an inspiring and rewarding experience for our participants.


We're thrilled to have a new sponsorship launch with SOLIDTEKNICS this year. Healthy, sustainable and multi-generational cookware, proudly 100% made in Australia! 
Designed for both professional and home kitchens, SOLIDTEKNICS range of one-piece wrought iron and stainless cookware is suitable for all heat sources from stovetop to woodfired pizza ovens. Better for chefs, and the environment. 


Our 2021 Golden Chefs will be in the running to win some impressive prizes courtesy of SOLIDTEKNICS, that are sure to be welcome additions to your professional chef kitchen equipment.
