Nicholas Deligiannis named Victoria’s Young Chef of the Year


Greek Australian chef, Nicholas Deligiannis, has been named Victoria’s Young Chef of the Year in this year’s The Age Good Food Guide.

The 28-year-old beat out other Victorian finalists including Ronith Arlikatti, Oliver Garrioch, Saavni Krishnan, Sriram Aditya Suresh and Cameron Tay-Yap.

“The award is what I’ve been working towards my whole career,” Deligiannis said after winning the award. “I’m hospo through and through.”

Deligiannis began his career aged eight, spinning pizza at his family’s business. He later did his apprenticeship at Jacques Reymond Restaurant (and then Bistro Gitan), before flying to London to gain experience.

On his return to Victoria, gigs in Melbourne and on the Mornington Peninsula culminated last year in a head chef role at seafood-focused restaurant Audrey’s.
