FROM THE PRESIDENT DEAR WORLDCHEFS, I always try to start my message with warm greetings, but unfortunately, my first line for this issue is of great sadness as “Mr. Paul Bocuse” has passed away. His loss will leave a huge gap for all our future chefs. It is personally very important that the legacy of the past always will remain as one of our guidelines in cooking, and should always be preserved for the following generations. Cooking these days is very commercial and professional. Sometimes, it is without heart and passion. At the same time, cooking is about art and art is about nourishment. THOMAS GUGLER WORLDCHEFS – PRESIDENT

Food is life and it’s great to value and respect it as it should be. Reducing Food Waste is one of the most important goals we must strive towards for a better tomorrow, and to build an environment, which can assure that the next generations will be able to enjoy good food as our parents and grandparents did. For us at Worldchefs, it is very important to pay attention to details with regards to sustainable food and to give the next generations a proper platform for education and proper learning. With our partnership with City & Guilds, many positive steps are progressing well; our partnership with Electrolux Professional and Nestlé Professional helps us to develop and make possible such initiatives and cooperation. I want to thank all our sponsors and partners for their great support and cooperation. Lately, our committee reports are coming in and after proper consolidation, a summary about all the activities will be circulated to all our member country associations. For 2018, the highlight is the Worldchefs Congress in Malaysia and I think all of us are looking forward to it! Lots of activities, informative sessions, top competitions, an amazing trade show and the camaraderie between chefs, the opportunity to exchange knowledge.... I am very thankful and on behalf of the entire Executive Committee and the Board of Directors, I want to thank the entire Congress team for their tremendous efforts and hard work to make this Congress another spotlight in our Worldchefs history. Financially, we are in a very good stage, with new global sponsors and continued partnerships with existing sponsors. Special thanks goes to the growing office team for their hard work and time to serve all our members well. Looking forward seeing you all somewhere around the world, and wish you all the very best for your culinary and personal future.

ENGLAND’S NATIONAL JUNIOR TEAM GO HOME WITH NATIONAL PRIDE AND THE DRAGON TROPHY It was a fierce battle indeed, in the kitchens of the Battle of the Dragon competition, as England and Wales faced off to see who would bring home the dragon trophy. Before a panel of international judges, the teams were tasked to create a 3-course menu for 70 people. Though Wales started with an appetiser of seared scallop and langoustine thermidor; a main course of pork tenderloin wrapped with prosciutto and a dessert of Barmley apple and vanilla ice-cream, it was ultimately England who stole the show (and the dragon trophy) with their winning repertoire of pan-roasted halibut; main course of venison loin, finished with a dark chocolate and orange mousse for dessert. “It continues to a be a real honour to manage, train, develop and compete as the National Junior Team. I’m so proud of every one of my teammates, for the past five years we’ve grown as a team and we’ve been working well together. We’ll definitely work even harder for the run up to the Culinary World Cup!”, stated Matthew Shropshall, Manager for the National Junior Team.

LARGEST CUP OF TEA… Kudos to the UAE chefs! The world’s largest cup of tea contained 5,000 litres of Karak Chai and was a joint effort between 138 chefs from the Emirates Culinary Guild, the Global Village in Dubai and Mindset Events to set a Guinness World of Records. To achieve their goal of breaking the previous world record of 4050 litres of tea, Chef Uwe Michael, President of the Emirates Culinary Guild first gathered senior chefs from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Syria together to test different

recipes for Karak Chai. When the winning concoction from Asselah of the Radisson Blu Hotel Deira Creek was eventually decided, the entire team got to work. Using a combined total of 270kg of milk powder, 400kg of sugar, 4.5kg of cloves, 135kg of fresh ginger, 27kg of cardamom and 400kg of tea powder, and with setup spanning two days, the next challenge was ensuring that the tea was boiled perfectly, to allow the proper infusion of the spices. Eventually, in a big cup that was 3.66m in height and 1.42m in diameter and with the tea at a perfect 80 degrees, the world record of 5000 litres was achieved and the tea was served to 45,000 Global Village visitors.

MEET THE YOUNG, GLOBAL FACE OF WORLDCHEFS For the first time ever, Worldchefs has appointed a Brand Ambassador! Ms Jessi McEwan who previously represented Australia in international culinary conferences, will be assuming the mantle of Brand Ambassador and promoting the organization on a daily basis via social media. We recently caught up with the new, global face of Worldchefs… How did you feel when you found out you were going to be the first appointed Brand Ambassador of Worldchefs? So proud and excited! Worldchefs has always given me the tools and support I needed to achieve my potential as a chef and this would be an opportunity for me to give back to them. What did you enjoy most while you were Australia’s First Young Chef Ambassador and what are you looking forward to the most now, as Worldchefs’ Brand Ambassador? I enjoyed the opportunity it gave me to travel around the world, and a platform to speak about an industry that I love being a part of. As Brand 8 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE

Ambassador now, I’m given an even bigger platform and I look forward to using my voice to reach out to young chefs around the world. What do you hope to achieve as Worldchefs’ Brand Ambassador? The culinary industry is no piece of cake (pun intended) and though we may have young chefs who joined due to an interest in cooking, the industry also suffers from a high turnover rate. So, I would definitely love to be an inspiration and role model to young chefs like myself and to show them that a career in this industry can be extremely fulfilling. What do you currently enjoy most about your job? At Hobbet Kitchen, we’re surrounded by the lushness of the winery and we have plenty of land to have our own vegetable garden, which supplies much of the ingredients we use in the kitchen. What I enjoy most is learning something new every day, whether it’s how to dry-age meat, being part of the process of pickling, curing, smoking, it’s all very rewarding work to me because I know it’s making me a better chef. When you’re not working, what do you usually like to cook? I don’t have much of a sweet-tooth, so my go-to food is usually something savoury, like cured meats and cheese, or I often whip up a bowl of pasta at home too. At home, we try to shake things up by occasionally having “Taco Tuesdays”, and I really enjoy gathering friends and family to create and share a meal together.

A WELSH BEEF CANAPÉ FIT FOR ROYALTY At a recent festival celebrating Welsh culture at Cardiff Castle with Prince Harry and fiancé Meghan Markle in attendance, it was the rare Welsh Beef canapé that stole the spotlight. The canapé in question was prepared by Chef Colin Gray, Vice President of the Culinary Association of Wales and head of the award-winning catering company, Capital Cuisine. Boasting rare Celtic Pride beef fillet, with horseradish

cream, rosemary crostini, finished with parmesan shavings and truffle oil, it proved a big hit with the royal party, and especially with Price Harry who requested his bodyguard to fill a napkin with the rare beef canapé for his and Ms Markle’s journey home. “It was very satisfying to receive really good feedback about the food. We wanted to give the royal party a true taste of Wales and they seemed to have enjoyed it”, said Chef Colin Gray who has now catered for four generations of the royal family. As a member of the Culinary Team of Wales, he catered for the late Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth II at the state opening of the National Assembly of Wales, Prince Charles at his Highgrove home and now, Prince Harry.

A SCHOLARSHIP WE SALUTE TO THE SCHOLARSHIP: The Chef Christopher Christie Scholarship was created by At-Sunrice Globalchef Academy in honour of the late Chef Christopher Christie, who was the executive chef of Marina Bay Sands. He could lead a 400-strong culinary team to execute a perfect fine-dining service, was passionate about cooking, and generous with his knowledge as he mentored 200 students of the At-Sunrice Globalchef Academy. THE RECIPIENT: As principal of the Phajoding Monastery in Bhutan, Lopen Namgay and his team work hard to care for, and empower underprivileged and orphan boys with education. As recipient of the scholarship, he will be invited to At-Sunrice Globalchef Academy for a three-week immersion programme that will hone his interest in the culinary arts, provide him with knowledge of basic recipes and Asian and Western vegetarian cuisines. It will culminate in a pizza making competition with a unique twist – there will no ovens used.

LEARNING JOURNEYS

THE LEGACY OF CHEF MARGARET TURNER

Michael Baskette from Education Committee profiles some of the exciting programmes introduced in the past year.

“I can only imagine where all of your graduates are today, all around the world…” -Dr. David Ross President of Southern Alberta Institute of Technology

PROGRAMMES SCHOOL OF CULINARY ARTS

“Chef Margaret Turner has spent the last thirty-five and a half years as a culinary instructor at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary, Canada. On Friday, February 2, 2018, faculty at the culinary school, former colleagues and teammates, industry professionals and friends celebrated Chef Turner’s retirement from SAIT. She felt quite at home in The Highwood Dining Room, a place where she hosted dozens of fundraising dinners and events, all in the best interest of her students or team members.

The famous KES College School of Culinary Arts is offering six different options to future students. Three of them are for the specialisation in Pastry/Bakery a unique programme offered only by KES College and students can choose for 2,3 or 4 years (Diploma or Advanced Diploma or BA in Culinary Arts). The other three programmes are in Cookery and again students can choose for 2, 3 or 4 years (Diploma or Advanced Diploma or BA in Culinary Arts).

16, 17 & 18 OCTOBER 2017 Seminars offered to year one students “Assignment Preparation” are to assist new students to understand what a project is and how they can prepare it. A project may start from cover page but what is included are the techniques and skills students they learn.

23 NOVEMBER 2017 The seminar “Improve your Abilities and Charismas” saw lecturer Savvas Konstantinides introducing this special seminar, concentrating in three aspects, communication, recognise and improve your charismas and time management.

28 NOVEMBER 2017 Cooking for the Anticancer Society meant students of year one from the BA in Culinary Arts (both of Cookery and Pastry /Bakery specialisations) cooked for the Arodafnousa Hospital patients. It was a very special day as young students had the opportunity to prepare and serve meals for the people having their treatment against cancer. 10 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE

The legacy of Chef Turner reaches far away from SAIT, too. (Mostly thanks to Chef Turner, SAIT is among the most medal-winning institutes of Canada starting in 1982.) Her thousands of students have graduated and many have moved away to seemingly every corner of the world. Moreover, Chef Turner’s career as a chef was not limited to SAIT. Her tireless volunteering with various organisations, foundations, committees etc. kept her in touch with so many people. Her legacy also includes working as a food stylist for films and television series that were filmed in Southern Alberta. As for Margaret’s next phase in life, many of us are sure that she has some plans up her sleeve for the cooking world. We just hope that it involves a well-deserved break. Chef and Chairman of Worldchefs Congress, Andy Cuthbert, while wishing Margaret a happy retirement, added, “I hope your retirement doesn’t mean the end of competitions, but means a little more for you to help others continue to be successful.” I can say that without a doubt, Chef Turner will continue to support others in their journeys but in the meantime, I wish her all the luck in the world as she embarks on a new life.

DELIVERING SOME GREAT NEWS FROM GREECE MANAGING ACTIONS TO IMPROVE AND PROMOTE CULTURED SEAFOOD PRODUCTS The beloved Mediterranean country that hosted Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2016 has some very good news to announce. A few days ago the Greeks celebrated the completion of the 3-year old Project – Strategic Use of Competitiveness towards Consolidating the Economic Sustainability of the European Seafood Sector – SUCCESS, a project funded by the European Union originated programme Horizon 2020. During this period, academics and researchers from the Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki made an advance research on seafood products and their development potential in Greece and the Balkans, focusing –among others- in the product of mussels. The team tried –and achieved- to create a new hulled mussel product, to be industrially used by the Seafood suppliers in the Balkan area, which, after careful processing ends up being healthier, safer and even tastier than the unprocessed product. More specifically, the new mussels product does not come with the dirt-brown color that the original does, it lasts for several days more without putting the supplier 14 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE

or the customer in the danger of food poisoning and at the same time contains the same appearance and taste the unprocessed mussel does, though being exempted by the dangers of the unprocessed mussel. In addition to the above, the team completed a very interesting market research to determine the current status of the situation regarding the seafood industry in Greece and the Balkans. The researchers came to the conclusion that there’s a huge potential in developing the industry by bringing on new products, adapted to the needs of the market and developing the already existent ones. Moreover, very important issues were also thoroughly analyzed and concluded, like the customer experience and relationship in regards to seafood products, the seafood products consumption by mass eatery establishments (schools, army bases etc.) and alternative forms of seafood production in regards with the market needs. For more information one can send an e-mail to mussels@food.teithe.gr

WORLDCHEFS – FEED THE PLANET

FEED THE PLANET EMPOWERS UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE IN BRAZIL THROUGH CULINARY TRAINING In a Feed the Planet collaboration, founded by Worldchefs, Electrolux Food Foundation and AIESEC, unemployed people in Brazil are being trained at the Electrolux factory in Curitiba. The objective is to equip them with the culinary skills they need to get a job in a professional kitchen.

The first wave of training kicked off in Curitiba, Brazil, in September. Twenty-one people – many of them single mothers struggling to find a job or unemployed relatives of Electrolux employees – are being trained by 12 chefs in a specially designed training kitchen at the Electrolux factory in Curitiba. During the ten-week period the students will learn how to provide for themselves and their families, as well as gain awareness about sustainable culinary practices such as zero food waste. The objective is to train them to find work in professional kitchens. Electrolux employees and AIESEC have also volunteered to support the participants with, for example, soft skill training such as how to write a resume. By helping people to get a job, this Feed the Planet project, run in a partnership between Worldchefs, Electrolux and AIESEC, and funded by the Electrolux Food Foundation, will help underprivileged individuals provide for themselves and their families. The curriculum, developed by Worldchefs, also aims at raising awareness about sustainable culinary practices such as zero food waste. The project is supported by AIESEC volunteers; Sodexo provides cleaning services and the food; and FAS, a local non-profit organization, helps to select the participants and organize the training.

FEED THE PLANET Feed the Planet is an initiative to inspire sustainable food consumption among communities and culinary professionals, and to support people in need through emergency relief, food poverty alleviation, and education. Founded by WORLDCHEFS, it is run in partnership with Electrolux and AIESEC. BETTER LIVES, BETTER FOOD, BETTER FUTURES Feed the Planet initiatives are diverse and cover the globe. What they share is the unwavering mission to inspire better food consumption and cooking habits among communities and professionals, and to help people in need through: AWARENESS & ADVOCACY -  Inspiring sustainable food consumption across the world teaching chefs how to lead impactful sustainability change in kitchens. EMERGENCY & FOOD POVERTY RELIEF -  Alleviating food shortages during emergency crises and for communities facing food poverty together with World Chefs Without Borders.

Cosimo Scarano, AIESEC Trainee and Project Coordinator, says, “The skills we teach the students will last them their entire lives.The goal is to help them have a better quality of life and find employment.”

WORLDCHEFS – TEOCHEW CUISINE

TEOCHEW HERITAGE IN MALAYSIA Representing the 2nd largest ethnic race in multicultural Malaysia, the Chinese population that migrated to then colonial Malaya hails from mainly southern China with 6 main dialect groups. There were Hokkiens, who formed the largest community, followed by Teochews, Cantonese, Hainanese, Hakkas and Foochow. BY CHEF ERIC LOW Despite not being the dominant dialect group, the Teochews who are known for their natural born entrepreneurship instincts, dominated much of the country’s lucurative economic sector. From agricultural plantations to seafood trade to import and exports of key commodities, they made significance contributions to the economic growth of Malaysia till today. From the days of settling down in colonial Malaya, the Teochews brought with them the four pillars of their heritage culture as in food, performing arts and music, embroidery and tea drinking. Food was the biggest impact to the development of what is known as Malaysian cuisine today. Teochew cuisine is considered as one of the sub division of Cantonese cuisine. Often overshadowed by the more dominant flavours of Cantonese dishes, yet it still has enough merits to stand on its own with its own unique characteristic charm. Teochew cuisine is considered the healthiest in Chinese cuisine context. There are more water based cooking techniques than dry heat cooking or deep frying. The emphasis is on fresh ingredients cooked with signature seasoning ingredients like fish sauce or fermented yellow soya beans to produce subtle, light flavours and clean finish on the palate. The most unique feature about Teochew cuisine is that it is the only cuisine in the world that uses many savoury ingredients in their dessert and sweet foods recipes. One can find pork cheeks, lard, shallots, spring onions, fermented red beancurd paste, fresh coriander leaves, carrots and mung beans used in various recipes for desserts and sweet foods. Hawker foods like oyster omelette, char koay teow, steam glutinous rice cakes, fishball noodles, cheng tng aka leng chee kang, fried radish cakes and chwee kueh all stemmed from street foods found in Chaoshan province of China. Bak kut teh, fish porridge, soy braised duck, savoury cold crab and desserts like yam paste with pumpkin, lotus nuts gruel, mung beans gruel and red bean pastries are found in Teochew eateries and restaurants with large Teochew communities in Malaysia.

MUAR Onward to Muar, along Jalan Haji Abu which is also known as Glutton Street to the locals, the oysters omelette stall and soy braised duck stalls are signature Teochew originated street foods that have found a permanent spot with the local community. In the colonial days, Muar River was a haven for wild grown oysters and at low tides, people can be seen foraging for oysters to be shucked and sold to hawkers who used them in oyster omelette and braised noodles. 30 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE

Bak Kut Teh

JOHOR Given the long coastline in Chaoshan province of China, naturally the Teochew migrants would also love to settle in coastal areas of Malaysia. The biggest Teochew community can be found in the state of Johor. Johor Bahru, the capital city of the state is also known as Little Swatow due to its strong embracement of Teochew culture, custom and festive observations. The annual Johor Chingay Parade on the 21st day of the 1st lunar month is a Teochew dominated street procession although it does involve the other 4 dialect groups. On the 3rd day of the 3rd lunar month, Teochews in Johor celebrate the birthday of Xuan Tian Da Di, who is one of the key patron saint worshipped by Teochew people with a mini food festival of traditional foods and communal dinning complimented by Teochew music and opera performances. Besides Johor Baru, Teochew communities can also be found in townships of Muar, Pontian, Bukit Mertajam and Rompin. On the eastern side of Malaysia, Teochews have found new homes in Kuching and Sibu. For a gastronomic experience of Teochew foods in Malaysia, the best place to start off would be in Johor Baru itself. Locals go to Restoran Wah Yew or Ah Chye as the owner is commonly known, for his signature Steam Pomfret Teochew Style, Prawn Rolls and Teochew Sio Bee which is a different version of Cantonese Siew Mai. Bak Kut Teh which is a clear pork rib soup with various side dishes is a breakfast or lunch favourite with locals flocking to a historical well known favourite, Restoran Bak Cheng in Taman Harmoni.

MELAKA At the UNESCO accredited world heritage city of Melaka, amid the plethora of Baba Nonya Cuisine restaurants, Teo Soon Loong Teochew Restaurant stands out as a popular venue for Teochew food with visitors coming from as far as Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Key signature dishes include braised oyster noodles, crispy skin roasted suckling pig and prawn rolls.

Teochew Fish Porridge

PONTIAN Before the North South Highway was built, travellers going up north to the country’s capital or further had to take on the coastal roads by passing some of the key towns along the way. At Pontian, a coastal seaside town on the west side of Johor, there is a century old Teochew pastries shop where the sweet and savoury bean filled delights are still hand crafted in an artisanal way. Chye Huat Heng Bakery is not only a gem in that township, but also a favourite pit stop for road trip travellers to grab a snack along the way. One can expect these pastries to be made with lard for that extra flaky fragrance and taste.

KUALA LUMPUR

Char Koay Teow

In the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, Cantonese cuisine dominate the profile of Chinese dishes. Most of the Teochews are scattered around the federal capitial with a significant cluster in Selangor. While most fine dining restaurants are Cantonese based in Kuala Lumpur, there are a few significant popular Teochew eateries around the city.

PENANG Up north in the state of Penang, many tourists would be more focused on what are the standard food offerings on the island. Many are not aware that Penang state encompasses a part of northern peninsular Malaysia with the city of Butterworth across the straits of Melaka. About 20km south from Butterworth lies the township of Bukit Mertajam otherwise also known as Dua Sua Kar in Teochew dialect. This Teochew enclave boasts some of the most rustic no frills Teochew grub in this part of Malaysia. It is like discovering cuisine bourgeois on Teochew food. At the 60years old Yoong Kee Restaurant, people flock in daily for steam fish with sour pickled mustard and stir fried beancurd with chive flowers. The simple cooking and fresh ingredients just speak for themselves. Another of their signature dish is deep fried compressed beancurd(taukwa) with chives dip. Ask any locals in Bukit Mertajam where else to find Teochew comfort food, chances are you will also get pointed to a coffee shop selling yam rice served with a rich bone broth of sliced pork, liver and other innards. This place is affectionately known to the locals as BM Yam Rice Kopitiam. On the main island of Penang, Teochew inspired hawker foods can be found in many of the famous food enclaves as in Koay Teow Thng, Char Koay Teow and Char Kuay Kak which is also known as fried radish cake with eggs, preserved turnip, dark soya and fish sauces. Chendol, which is a local dessert of pandan flavour mungbean flour strips, coconut milk and palm sugar was also made popular on the island by a Teochew hawker. With a deep history since the colonial days of Malaysia, the migrated Teochews have contributed greatly to the vibrant dining scene of modern Malaysia and its cuisine heritage. Indeed, Malaysia’s eclectic mixed of foods across the various races and their sub elements does indeed make this country a “Truly Asia” dining destination.

IN&OUT OF THE KITCHEN – NEWS

DID YOU KNOW… On March 14, 2017, Thomas Gugler, president of the Worldchefs, officially awarded a certificate of honour to recognise Hoi An as the Food Capital of Vietnam. Hoi An in Vietnam is often cited in international magazines and travel pages as one of 10 best places to eat in the World. It is also the World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. It is about fabulous fresh food is the order of the day – every day. The ancient town of Hoi An, 100km south, down the coast, is a very beguiling place to spend a few days, with its lazy river lined with mustard-yellow merchants’ houses, and beaches a few kilometres away.

QUANTUM PRO We are loving this series of kitchenware by Q Industries for good reason. Did you know they go to the extent of cutting the induction pot in half so they know the details? These handles are all intentionally hollow, which means it’s less likely for you to burn yourself. They also use spot welding so there are no rivets to trap the dirt - for absolute hygiene purposes. Cheap products use 201stainless steel, and surgeons use 316. For Quantum Pro, they use 304 Stainless steel, sourced from the holy grail of stainless steel – Korea. Best of all? It comes with 10 years of warranty. Visit www.qindustries.com for more information.

RECIPE FOR DISASTER Open your fridge, grab the ingredients closest to their use-by date and create a recipe from food that would otherwise go to waste. This is the challenge set by The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and creative agency Anomaly. The campaign, Recipe for Disaster, developed by Adam Burns and Paco Lopez at Anomaly, aims to raise awareness and money for hungry people by asking the general public to be more conscious of their food waste – one of the fundamental steps towards eradicating global hunger.

NEW FOOD TRENDS Discover Good Food’s hottest trends in food and drink for 2018, including meat-free burgers, new Hawaiian food, new seasonings, hot spices and more innovative ways to eat healthy. Over the last year, we’ve seen a wide range of food and drink trends reflecting changing attitudes towards health, community and the environment. We’ve seen a  brunch  boom,  buddha bowls  aplenty and of course, the avocado craze. It seems 2018 is set to be a year of even more adventurous veggie and vegan cuisine while the rise of hyper-local cooking and exciting advances in technology GUT-FRIENDLY FOOD With  fermenting, pickling and preserving reaching the mainstream – the gut health is going to be a big food trend for 2018. This includes probiotics like  kimchi,  miso  and  kefir  and  prebiotics such as onions, garlic and other alliums. HAWAIIAN FOOD Poke bowls are everyday food in Hawaii – essentially sushi without the fussy presentation. Still relatively hard to find, even in London, next year they will likely cross over into the mainstream. HYPER-LOCAL FOOD In many countries now, there is a growing trend for dishes created with  ingredients sourced within walking distance. One of the figureheads for this movement is Danish chef René Redzepi who is doing just that at his two-Michelin-starred Copenhagen restaurant Noma.   PLANT-BASED PROTEIN

WE SALUTE ... CONSTANT INNOVATION BY FRIEDR. DICK

With more and more chefs embracing ingredients such as tofu, tempeh and quinoa, veganism is on the rise. Food blogger Angry Chef  talks about redefined Indian cuisine (rich with pulses) as a growing trend, with restaurants taking dishes back to their plant-based roots.

High-quality knives and tools require premium protection for transport and storage. Friedr. Dick is pleased to present its newly designed and optimised knife bag collection consisting of five different bags that can be used to transport your knives safely and conveniently.

SOUTH AMERICAN CUISINES

Perhaps the most obvious change to the roll bags is the new particularly hard-wearing outer material that is already used today for tool bags in the craft sector. They are also easy and hygienic to care for thanks to the water-resistant and washable synthetic fibre material. Modern snap closures for easy and flexible handling and the wide, comfortable shoulder strap provides even more comfort during transport.The subtle and elegant embroidered logo underlines the modern zeitgeist.

Mexican, Peruvian and Brazilian food along with Japanese-Mexican fusion could well be big this year. ‘Arepas’, chicha and chulpe corn will be prevalent

The flexible mesh pockets are suitable for a wide range of knife and tool handles making them extremely versatile.The intelligent new pocket configuration has created 1 to 2 additional pockets in each bag. Other pockets in the interior panels provide even more storage space that can be used, for example, for books, pens and writing pads. The classic – the artificial leather bag - has also been given a new contemporary look. The grained leather effect with a subtle and elegant embroidered logo makes it easier and more comfortable to roll up. The dimensions are the same but an additional pocket has also been created in this bag. The shoulder strap is now wider and therefore more comfortable. WWW.WORLDCHEFS.ORG

IN&OUT OF THE KITCHEN – WORLDCHEFS ACADEMY

WORLDCHEFS ACADEMY HAS ARRIVED! To ensure the sustainability of the culinary profession, the next generation of culinary talent is incredibly important. Young people everywhere wanting to enter our profession often reach out to Worldchefs to find out where and how they can learn to become chefs. For this reason, we have created: Worldchefs Academy. BY CORNELIA VOLINO

WORLDCHEFS SECRETARY GENERAL

40 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE


IN&OUT OF THE KITCHEN – WORLDCHEFS ACADEMY

WHAT IS IT AND WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM? The motivation behind this initiative is to equip young people that don’t have the means to enroll in paid education, with the basic knowledge and skills to apply for a job in a professional kitchen and to provide world class culinary education material to supplement the learning experience for people doing culinary apprenticeships. Through the Bill Gallagher Young Chefs forum, Dr. Bill Gallagher led the mission to develop and empower young chefs and after he passed away, Worldchefs made a commitment at the Worldchefs Congress 2016 to continue his legacy. Now, in 2018, it’s time to reveal the program.

WHY IS THIS NECESSARY? It is not easy to obtain globally recognized qualifications and skills in the culinary industry, especially if you lack the means. 30 million children a year drop out of school and only 7% of the global population holds a College, University or Trade School qualification. These are sobering statistics. It’s also crucial to note that often, only those living in towns and cities have access to training and educational institutions, and these tend to be located in urban areas. This effectively excludes large numbers of young people outside of urban locations from life changing opportunities.

HOW HAS THE WORLDCHEFS ACADEMY BEEN DEVELOPED? The Pro Gastronomia Foundation, who have been promoting culinary education in emerging and developing economies for over 25 years, offered to provide the necessary support to develop an online academy for young people that want to become chefs. Through their generosity, a partnership with Nestlé Professional was formed and the online portal was created by Klood Digital in conjunction with the Worldchefs Academy Development Advisors. This new online learning portal, the first of its kind, will open a channel of learning and communication for those looking to establish a career in a professional kitchen.

WHO IS THE ACADEMY FOR? While the Academy is open to all, it is primarily aimed at those who lack the resources to pay for expensive training or culinary school. The Worldchefs Academy is free and open to anyone, no matter what background or current level of skill. The online portal will be made available in multiple languages to offer access to people from all over the world who want to join the culinary industry. The program can be followed as a complete standalone program but can also be used to compliment other existing courses or to provide the theoretical component to an in-service, kitchen apprenticeship. “For us at Worldchefs, it is important to give young chefs the opportunity for a proper learning system. Proper learning means from a to z, that this opportunity will be available all over the world, then they can travel and really build on their career - from scratch” stated, Worldchefs President Thomas Gugler.

WHAT IS THE ACADEMY?

Upon completion of the Pre-Commis Chef course, which will provide basic and intermediate theory learning in this entry level kitchen position course, a successful online final assessment is required in order to obtain a Worldchefs Pre-Commis Chef certificate – an important first step for anyone looking to apply for employment in a professional kitchen.

THE ACADEMY, ON A PRACTICAL LEVEL The course has been developed to improve the learner’s knowledge base, skill set and professional attitude. Culinary knowledge -what do I need to know Culinary skill - what do I need to do Professional attitude - how do I embrace it The course consists of 30 lessons that are required to be followed in a progressive sequence. Each Lesson module consists of: Overview and Specific Learning Outcomes Lesson Practical video Transcript of video Resources Learning Assessment Upon completion of a module grouping, the participant will receive the following badges: Professionalism Hygiene & Sanitation Culinary Theory Professional Cooking Kitchen Operations Nutrition The learner can repeat the lesson as many times as required to pass the knowledge check. Upon successful completion of a lesson, further lessons that build on the acquired knowledge, are unlocked, allowing the learner to reinforce the learning in a constructive manner. From signing up, learners will have six months to complete all the lessons and pass the final assessment to achieve the certificate.

ACADEMY ACCESS The Worldchefs Academy will be accessible via worldchefsacademy.com and the worldchefs.org websites initially in English. Other languages will be added soon.

ACADEMY DEVELOPMENT ADVISORS: Cornelia Volino, Canada, Rochelle Schaetzl, Nestle Professional, Ray McCue, USA, Dirk Maritz, Nestle Professional and Martin Kobald, South Africa.

Worldchefs Academy is a web-based portal that provides access to foundation level culinary education – the basics that set the standard for an entry level job in a professional kitchen. The training available via the Academy will be structured as one course comprised of 30 lessons in total. The Academy will be free to anyone who wants to learn. The resource is entirely online and can be accessed by anyone, anywhere as long as there is an internet connection. WWW.WORLDCHEFS.ORG

IN&OUT OF THE KITCHEN – SUSTAINABILITY

PERFECT MEDIUM DICE: EQUALITY AND BUILDING SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY Do you practice social sustainability?. BY JEREMY ABBEY

WCMC, CEC, CEPC, CCE, CCA

42 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE


IN&OUT OF THE KITCHEN – SUSTAINBILITY

Picture walking into a cooler. On the shelf are two containers of carrots both perfectly medium diced. Just by looking at the carrots, can you tell who prepared them? Was it a male or female cook that prepared the mis en place? Was it the grill cook or the saucier that cut the carrots so perfectly? Does it matter as long as the carrots are evenly cut to the expectation of the operation and will provide the customer with the experience they are expecting? No. So why do we still hear of inequality in the culinary industry? Inequality encompasses Social Sustainability in the culinary industry and is more important now than it ever has been. Worldwide, there is a struggle to find and retain good quality cooks and other employees. We as chefs and leaders in kitchens must take on a more active role to sustain our industry and create equitable work places. Many operations have recycling and composting as a standard operating procedure. This is a great shift in our industry to address the concerns of environmental sustainability. Every operation is concerned about food cost with rising global food prices and other variable cost which mean financial sustainability is a given in the food service industry. But many cooks and chefs fail to recognize the impact and importance of social sustainability. For two decades the human dimension has been neglected in the concept of sustainable development. Too long have the sustainability discussions been focused on the bio-physical and economic issues while disregarding the original concepts of sustainability that include a clear social mandate. “Social Sustainability is about identifying and managing business impacts, both positive and negative on people,” according to Ms. Lila Karbassi, Chief of Programmes for the UN Global Compact. The concept of Social Sustainability has not been discussed enough in business development of sustainable plans. People are the drivers of the hospitality industry and it is imperative that the industry focus on bettering the working conditions and the equality of our industry to ensure we have a sustainable workforce in the future.

Bridge Sustainable Development encompasses moving in a transformational direction. Changing a culture in a business environment is one of the most difficult challenges of my career. To change the working environment of a kitchen can be very difficult. Breaking old habits and establishing new standards is not east but, in the long run, it remains the best way to increase sustainability. The simple gesture of taking the time to coach a new skill or cook for the team can make an impact on the culture and increase the social sustainability of an operation. When we take the time to create a positive work environment employees are less likely to move to another operation. In today’s environment, it is the responsibility of every foodservice worker to be aware of equality concerns and social sustainability in our industry. Kitchen culture is changing. No longer can chefs lead with an iron fist and improve performance by berating cooks. There are too many opportunities in the industry and unless we take care of each other, people will move on. No matter how good of a chef or operation you run, people must be respected and treated with equality. It is our responsibility to be the change and foster the new culture of Social Sustainability. Remember the next time you see perfectly diced carrots that it doesn’t matter who cut them. Male or female, culinary skills speak for themselves. It is our responsibility to foster equality to enhance Social Sustainability. Customers don’t care about the skin color or cultural background of the cook who made the perfect chicken chasseur. Why should a chef? These are difficult concepts to reflect on but the bottom line is, if we don’t begin to foster change in our culinary culture and focus on Social Sustainability, we will lose our industry.Take an inventory of yourself and your actions the next time you inventory the canned goods, you may be surprised at what you find.Think and act to improve Social Sustainability in your operation.

One concept of Social Sustainability divides the idea into three compartments; Developmental, Maintenance and Bridge. When we think about how to establish a more equitable and sustainable environment in kitchens and food service establishments, we need to place these concepts in the forefront of our minds. Developmental is the foundation of the concept. Does the environment meet the basic needs of the person? While many of us think that this would be a quick answer, “of course it does”, challenge yourself to ensure that you are offering as much as you can to the person. Are you compensating everyone based on merit and performance opposed to whom you like or paying males more than females? Do you provide an employee meal? What else can you do in the operation to ensure that you create a better developmental foundation of Social sustainability? When thinking about the maintenance of a Social Sustainability plan in a food service operation, we need to consider what we are doing to enhance our employees and ensuring their success. Are you the leader that continually teaches employees new skills or ways to improve their work flow? Do you give performance reviews, formal or informal on a regular basis? People love conversation and encouragement. Kitchens allow for great training environments, if you take the time to sustain employees.

What are food allergies? Food allergies occur when a person’s immune system recognises the protein in a particular food as a threat and the body responds with physical reactions (e.g. hives, upset stomach, difficulty breathing).8

A Safer STARTS Kitchen HERE As a food service provider, you’re expected to serve safe and satisfying food to your customers, and one of the most important ways to do that is to learn about food allergies. Food allergies affect hundreds of millions of people worldwide–you probably know someone with a food allergy. In fact, food allergy prevalence is becoming more common, and reactions are also becoming more severe.9 While many different foods can cause allergies, most problems arise from a handful common allergens, including peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, fish, shellfish, gluten-containing cereals, soy, and sesame seeds. . Reactions can be mildly uncomfortable, serious, or even fatal, and they can happen anywhere even in your dining room! In fact, the majority of fatal allergic reactions occur with foods served outside of

the home. However, by taking a few important safeguards, you can help protect both your customers and your business from the harmful effects of food allergies. In this issue, we’ll tell you more about common allergens, safe practices you can follow in the kitchen and at the table, and alternatives to satisfy customers with food allergies. Since we do not provide all of the information, perhaps we change this line to say: Continue reading to learn about some of the most common food allergens and some tips for managing them in your own kitchens.

anatomy OF A FOOD ALLERGY

Food allergies are widespread and can be unpredictable. While some people never experience a problem, allergic reactions could potentially affect anyone including you, your customers, or your staff. Food allergies are most common in babies and children, but they can arise at any point in life—even if someone has eaten a particular food for years with noproblems.1

Children may grow out of some food allergies when they become adults, but there is no medical cure today. People who are affected must follow strict avoidance diets to avoid a reactio.2

What about oral allergy syndrome? Oral allergy syndrome (OAS) is technically a pollen allergy, not a food allergy. However, when someone with allergies to birch, ragweed, or grass pollens consumes particular raw fruits, vegetables, or tree nuts, OAS can cause an itchy mouth or throat. Cooking or peeling the food in question may distort the proteins enough to overcome the problem.3,4 However, if a customer asks you to avoid a certain food, it's best to do so, as there have been documented incidents of serious reactions.

Allergy vs. Intolerance

THE IMMUNE SYSTEM responds to a food protein that is consumed or inhaled.

The body’s immune system reacts by releasing histamine and other chemicals to attack the protein. These chemicals trigger allergic symptoms like: ITCHY EYES RUNNY NOSE & SNEEZING

THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM responds negatively to a particular food.

For instance, a person with lactose intolerance cannot completely digest milk sugar and may experience diarrhoea after eating dairy foods. While an intolerance is not an allergy, a customer with a food intolerance may still experience discomfort and wish to avoid consuming certain foods.

ANAPHYLAXIS This is the most dangerous reaction and can be fatal if not treated quickly. Symptoms include swelling of the airways, difficulty breathing, drop in blood pressure and unconsciousness. WHEEZING & SHORTNESS OF BREATH

FISH

EGGS

CRUSTACEANS & MOLLUSCS

There are more than 20,000 species of fish. Some people are allergic to only certain varieties, but medical professionals typically recommend that people with fish allergies avoid all types. Other kinds of seafood are also linked to serious food allergies. Unfortunately, fish and seafood allergies are usually not outgrown, so they require life-long avoidance.

Eggs play an important structural role in many recipes, making them difficult to avoid. Here are some ingredients to watch out for and some egg alternatives for you to experiment with in your own recipes. AVOID

MILK AVOID

Milk is another common food allergen, especially for infants and young children. Since the proteins from milk in cow, sheep and goat are similar, those with milk allergies may need to avoid dairy from other domestic animals.

CHECK LABELS

• All milk from domestic animals (liquid, condensed, powdered, malted, evaporated)

• Curd or whey

• Baked goods

• Custard and pudding

• Candy and chocolate

• Ice cream

• Yoghurt

• Ghee

• Deli meats • Hot dogs (except kosher) • Margarine or butter flavouring • Nougat • Tuna fish containing casein

Lactose INTOLERANCE

Up to 65% of the human population may be lactose intolerant,1 which means the body has trouble digesting the main sugar in milk and dairy foods. While not a food allergy, lactose intolerance can cause cramps, diarrhoea, and other digestive system problems for those who consume dairy products in larger amounts.

Not an exhaustive list. Read ingredient labels carefully.2,3

CHEF TIPS Milk is an everyday ingredient in many recipes, but there are many ways for chefs to get around dairy allergies. Replace dairy milk with almond milk, soy milk, rice milk, or coconut milk

In some recipes, water, broth, or juice can also be substituted for milk

Cook with oil instead of butter

Rice milk can be used as a thickening agent in baked goods or desserts

Look for “pareve” on kosher food label which indicates a milk-free product

SAFETY FIRST Protecting your customers from allergic reactions begins in the kitchen.

1

By taking steps to prevent exposure and cross-contact during food preparation, you can help keep your customers safer. Here are some tips to come up with your own allergy management plan.

Understand Your Ingredients Have a clear understanding of the ingredients used in your kitchen, and which ones contain a common allergen. Ask your vendors to share any food allergy information they may have. In many parts of the world, food allergens must be declared on labels,1 so read labels carefully and recheck them regularly for changes. If a label says, “may contain traces of…”, the food is probably prepared in a factory that also makes products containing the allergen. These trace amounts may be significant enough to cause a serious allergic reaction.

Review Your Recipes Review your recipes frequently, keeping an updated record of which ones contain allergens. This record should be easily accessible to your staff and management. Identify which recipes can be adapted with simple substitutions, and which are prohibited for people with specific food allergies. This will help your kitchen address each customer’s needs, while reassuring guests that you have their best interests at hands.

Manage Your Workspace Anyone preparing food should understand the importance of following food allergy protocol. Make sure your staff knows that food allergies can be life-threatening.

VanDrie Controlled Quality Veal is veal with a taste known to generations. It is easily digested, low in cholesterol and high in vitamins and minerals. Truly a meat for all menus. It has a light taste and is universally appreciated and used much in international cuisines. Calves are housed in groups at VanDrie Group veal farms. Their stables are spacious, well-ventilated and well-lit. The calves are fed calf milk supplemented with roughage.

Vitender is veal that offers a unique flavour experience. By feeding the calves a fibre-rich diet and providing them with optimum care, the quality is clearly reflected in the veal. Vitender is not just any veal. The calves’ diet consists mainly of varied roughage. As a result, the meat has a distinctive texture when compared to regular veal, and the characteristic flavour of veal (no older than 8 months) is immediately recognisable. Vitender is lightly tender and lean.

Friander is a distinctive cut of beef (8-12 months). The particular feed, accommodation and care given ensure that this meat has a robust texture and yet is tender. This is meat of a lively red colour, light in calories and easily combined with other products.
