    I think it may be true that alot of them are in Australia.
    We even have what is known as the 'Brit Pack'- a number of british born ( and usualy michelin star restaurant trained) chefs running alot of the good restaurants in Melbourne.

    Hello From Edinburgh

    Just found this site, I am a Head Chef in Scotland, at a new post in a 70 bedroom hotel. My team are very young and more interested in :confused: their night life than the career, what to you do to bring some professionlism back to a time with no heart?

    :confused:
