The Australian Institute of TechnicalChefs was founded in Victoria in 2015 by a group of chefs to offer a platform for commercial chefs to register their legitimate status to  demonstrate they are professionals, as against the many amateurs who call themselves chefs. The first meeting convened by George Hill who brought together a group of commercial chefs on 15th September in Melbourne, Victoria.

The content on this website is provided for general information purposes and may not take into account detail that could be significant in the many facets required in a chef’s career. TechnicalChef is an attempt to qualify and acknowledge people who believe they are a chef and operate at the professional level in the industry.
However the institute relies on each individual statement of their development and training and experience. AITC Membership alone should not be totally relied upon and is not a substitute for evaluating a chef’s suitability for a given occupational responsibility.
