Deniliquin chef Lachlan Hart (pictured) has been named the Bendigo Regional Institute of TAFE’s Apprentice of the Year.
The 22 year-old, who is completing his third year as an apprentice chef, was recognised for his second year’s work.
Mr Hart works at the Coach House Hotel and studies via the Echuca-based Bendigo Regional Institute.
He said the judges chose the Apprentice of the Year based on attitude, skill and development.
‘‘I like food. I’ve always sort of been involved with it,’’ said Mr Hart, who taught himself to cook at a young age.
He developed his skills when he started his apprenticeship at the Coach House, where he said he works 40 hours a week.
Mr Hart said he had no idea he was going to be named Apprentice of the Year, and thanked Coach House owners Tony Hocking and Marianne Talbot for their support.
‘‘Marianne came to the awards night with me. She was quite proud.
‘‘Tony and Marianne have helped me all the way. Without them I don’t think I would’ve stuck with it.
‘‘Once my apprenticeship is completed I’d like to go overseas and learn more about cooking and cuisine, and when I come back I’d like to open my own restaurant.’’
