The Gault&Millau Australia Restaurant Guide is an internationally-acclaimed magazine detailing Australia’s prestigious culinary achievements.
Katey Shaw, 24, could appear in the next edition.
Shaw – nominated twice for “Potentialist of the Year” and “Pastry Chef of the Year” – will compete against Australia’s best chefs – including pastry legend Anna Polyviou from the Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney.
“To be up against someone like her. I’m already a winner,” the Kyūbi chef said.
The first prize recipient will receive a six-week scholarship in France and guided tours of local restaurants and vineyards.
The winners will be announced in Melbourne on November 7.
