International Chefs Day 2005
Since International Chefs Day was inaugurated last year, 20 October has been marked as a special occasion by culinarians to
salute the profession and create awareness of chefs who have set remarkable industry standards for the art of cooking. The commemorative day was initiated by the World Association of Cooks Societies (WACS), which counts over eight million chefs
from all over the world as members.
The main aim of this special day is for chefs from 72 countries to create massive awareness of the profession by hosting culinary competitions, demonstrations and charity events to raise funds for the international culinary community. Government officials, charity organisations and tourism boards of each country will come together to drive the vision of WACS, as well as raise the profile of the associations.
Events organised include a slew of charity functions. The Hong
Kong Chef Association (HKCA) for one is celebrating the event by hosting a charity luncheon buffet to raise funds for Ho Chi Association, a school for the handicapped. Over in Australia, a larger scale of activities has been planned. The Australian
Culinary Federation (ACF) has registered with the World Guinness Book of Records to attempt making the world뭩 largest
galantine at 12 metres. The proceeds from the sale of portions of
the giant dish will be donated to charity.
Over in Singapore, the Singapore Chefs Association (SCA) will be serving lunches in various charitable organisations. The brigade
of prominent chefs has devised a plan to visit homes like the Sunlove Dementia Day Care centre and the Rainbow Centre Special School to provide meals lovingly prepared for the special audience.
Other chefs around the world are celebrating by organising events
to garner publicity for their associations. In India, the National Culinary Congress held earlier this month (in conjunction with International Chefs Day) organised a culinary competition among 50 colleges and hotels. This event was a strategic move to garner
more attention for the Indian Chefs Federation (ICF), which saw a
large audience getting involved in culinary activities.
Apart from paying tribute to the talents and skills of chefs all over
the world, International Chefs Day is more than a special day to
celebrate the ingenuity of the profession; it is indeed a day for
these industry leaders and food lovers to celebrate the
appreciation of food through goodwill.
In this special supplement, we will update and feature the various
activities and pictures from various chef association celebrations
as they come in.
Happy Chefs Day!
