Dominic Muollo-Gray, a WelTec student, has been named as one of the top young chefs in the world after he placed at the Young Chef Olympiad 2020 competition, held in India earlier this month.

Muollo-Gray, who has almost completed his New Zealand Certificate in Cookery programme, represented New Zealand at the annual event and was placed 11th out of 55 competitors.

As well as being placed in the top 20, Dominic also won the Plate Final and the Best Prepared Recipe Costings. For the Plate round, Dominic had to produce four portions each of a vegetarian starter and a prawn main within just two hours.  WelTec chef tutor Frank Prskawetz, who coached and accompanied Dominic to the event, said Dominic produced the best dishes and won comfortably.

Prskawetz said “The breadth of his awards demonstrates what a great chef he is – he can not only make it look beautiful, but he showed strength on the business side too. We’re delighted he did so well.”
