Cooking in Adelaide

hello all-

I am a classically trained chef just looking to work under a good Australian Chef so I can advance my career while in country on the working holiday visa. I have experience in all areas of the restaurant and am wanting to find something in a farm to table concept preferably.

What are my chances of finding a cooking job near Adelaide or Melbourne with the restrictions of the work holiday visa? I like these two areas and ofcourse wine country rocks. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi drbushman, and welcome to Australia!

I'm not as familiar with Adelaide, but in melbourne and Victoria there are heaps of amazing restaurants that would be great to work at. You can look at The Age Good Food Guide or the Australian Good Food Guide for names of places, and there's plenty of other review sites on the webs.

I believe that a lot of people get hospitality jobs on WHVs, the problem is that because you can only stay for six months they have limited incentive to invest in you or give you a more challenging job. So, there's a lot of waiters, kitchen hands etc...

Ultimately though, it will depend on where you apply and your own experience. I would not underestimate how many places you need to apply to, and at best you'll be pleasantly surprised. I'd also look outside central melbourne, as there's generally less competition in regional areas.

Also, have you thought about Tasmania? This is a beautiful place and there's a large sustainable/natural food industry.

Good luck!
