Membership of the Institute of TechnicalChefs is not a RIGHT it is a PRIVILEGE.

Created by a group of commercial chefs. TechnicalChef responds to the growing fickle and often confusing use of the title “chef”.
The title “chef” has lost its professional significance in everyday use, and in the media. TechnicalChef exists to protect the title of trained and professional commercial chefs.
Members of the Australian Institute of Technical Chef’s are licensed to publicly demonstrate they are qualified, experienced and ethical. Membership gives a chef “What deceit, money, or fame cannot buy” Authenticity, Respectability and Creditability. The TechnicalChefs register identifies professionals who have fulfilled the qualification, experience, fitness, and admission requirements of A.I.T.C and considered to have the qualities of a legitimate commercial chef.

Fundamentally, TechnicalChef is a logo you can trust. If found in breach of the conditions required to display the logo, members may be expelled.
Frequently Asked Questions provide many common answers, Including: policies and conditions.
A long-term goal of the Institute is to investigate legal avenues of protecting a title in Australian law as a “Protected Name given to a professional commercial chef”. This process will take some time (Years) and is not to be taken for granted.
Meanwhile it will be a professional chefs association in every sense of the word.

Apply-buttonThe general public generally misunderstand what a “chef“ really is. The common belief is that anyone who cooks food as a job is a chef. However a genuine professional chef is much more than wearing a crisp white coat,  and only preparing food.

Furthermore unfortunately the title Chef, Professional Chef, Certified Chef, Master Chef, Executive Chef, Chef de cuisine, and other job descriptions have different ambiguous meanings that depend upon ones own perception.

The TechnicalChef logo is the Australian Commercial Cookery Industry validation that identifies all of the above titles in one logo.

The logo shows the person is an industry licensed professional commercial chef. The logo verifies the user has met minimum  professional industrial standards in  commercial cookery  training and commercial kitchen experience; and aware of their ethical obligations in practice.
