Coffs Harbour chef Russell Cane said he'd benefited enormously from being a finalist in the Proud to be a Chef program.

APPRENTICE chefs have just under a week to apply for the culinary experience of a lifetime - Proud to be a Chef.

Coffs Harbour's Russell Cane, took part in this year's program run by Fonterra, which rewards trainee chefs across Australia offering one lucky contestant an international work placement.

"I was initially motivated to enter because I figured it can't hurt to try and once I was announced as a finalist I was so excited and very glad that I did," Russell said.

"It helped me learn some new techniques and skills that I have been able to bring back into my kitchen at work.

"I would definitely encourage other apprentice chefs to apply - you really have nothing to lose and so much to gain"

Thirty-two finalists will be selected from across Australia taking part in four days of culinary master classes in Melbourne from Monday, February 23 to Thursday, February 26.

The winner will receive the major prize of $7,500 to spend on an international paid placement, tailored to their aspirations of becoming a professional chef.

Entries close on Friday. Program information can be found at fonterraproudtobeachef.com.au
