2019 Nestlé Golden Chef’s Hat Award national champions Alessio Nogarotto and Giles Gabutina with Big Hat trophy.

Giles Gabutina and Alessio Nogarotto, who both work at Bentley Restaurant & Bar, have been crowned the national champions of Australia’s longest running and most credible culinary competition for young chefs. 

The National champions out-cooked a host of new culinary talent at the finals of the 2019 Nestlé Golden Chef’s Hat Award at Fine Food Australia. 

The Sydney chefs impressed the judges with their winning menu taking home silver medals for their entrée and main courses and gold for their dessert course. 

The golden pair particularly impressed the judging panel with a stand-out dessert course of roasted and glazed pears with crème fraiche and citrus parfait, pear and burnt butter emulsion, toasted olive oil cake with a bitter citrus and fennel infusion.

The National champions were awarded a $15,000 culinary trip of a lifetime to North America.

“We are totally shocked but so happy with the result, we definitely exceeded our own expectations!” the happy winners said.

“There were a few hiccups at the start of the competition but once we got cooking everything just kind of fell into place. We were really happy with what we produced and it’s great to see that the judges liked it too. It’s been an amazing experience from start to finish.”
