FROM THE PRESIDENT GREETINGS TO ALL! I am taking this opportunity to thank you for all your great support and efforts. We are striving hard to become better and better and all the team of the Executive Committee, the Board of Directors, the Office Team and Executive Director are doing their utmost best to go forward and to serve you. We have had some changes in the office, with team members leaving and new colleagues joining us. I assure you that we are always on track and growing. At the same time, we are very thankful to all our sponsors and strategic partners, because without all of you we could not achieve our goals.
THOMAS GUGLER WORLDCHEFS – PRESIDENT
The newly established Worldchefs Academy is doing fine and we are very proud that we could launch this noble project in collaboration with Nestle Professional at the Worldchefs Congress in Kuala Lumpur. There have been lots of interest and enrolment and it shows that education is the key element to professional success. The next big event will be the Culinary World Cup in Luxembourg this November where we will have our bi-annual Board of Directors meeting. It is wonderful to combine hard business meetings during these events. At the same time, I want to thank the Presidents of the National Associations and their members who are hosting so many culinary competitions all around the globe, holding the Worldchefs flag up high. So many efforts are going into this field, and the entire global Worldchefs community is a great support. At the same time I want to thank Rick Stephen, Continental Director in Asia for his efforts in leading the Global Chef Challenges for many years. He has given so much and we are sorry to see him go. His successor will be Rudolph Mueller from the Culinary Committee and we warmly welcome him on board. I personally enjoyed the Worldchefs Congress in Malaysia a lot and want to thank everyone involved from the bottom of my heart. The entire Worldchefs team did a great job. All the people at the front and back of the scenes did a marvellous job. A big thank you to Andy Cuthbert, the Congress Chairman, and his team. I’m happy to see new members have joined Worldchefs and this makes us all proud to grow our Chefs family bigger and bigger. We are going to have a fantastic event, the World Heritage Cuisine Summit in Amritsar, India from 11 to 14 of October, where more than 40 nations are taking part. The work for the next Worldchefs Congress in Saint Petersburg, has already started and as we all know time is flying. We will have the great chance to explore this magnificent city in 2020. Sending you all the very best culinary regards and looking forward to seeing you personally somewhere around the globe.

Afternoon Tea for the 21st Century is an evolution of Dilmah’s 8 year journey with the Dilmah Real High Tea Challenge.
The primary experiential element that should be fulfilled for a 21st Century experience: Good taste, including aroma, flavour, texture and taste harmony in culinary or mixology presentations.
Afternoon tea for the 21st century is an occasion that is characterized by indulgence. Elegance in taste harmony, presentation of food, presentation and service; including the table layout, menu, and other elements fulfill this.
Relative to the natural antioxidant potential in tea, the selection, preparation and presentation of teas should be made in such a manner that does not compromise the wellness in tea.
Amongst the chief reasons for the existence of Dilmah, is a commitment to enhancing the lives of the less privileged. Whilst Afternoon Tea for the 21st Century presents a tasteful and healthy experience, incorporation of ‘purpose’ in relation to humanitarian and environmental aspects is as important.

THE ITALIAN CHEFS FEDERATION TURNS 50!
WORLDCHEFS MOURNS THE PASSING OF CHINESE CUISINE ASSOCIATION’S PRESIDENT SU
What better way to celebrate an anniversary than with a big party in Rome? The Italian Chefs Federation celebrated their 50th anniversary with the National Assembly of Cooks on 9 April, followed by an elegant gala dinner at the Palazzo Brancaccio.. On the following day, after a solemn ceremony in the Capitol, the Italian Chefs’ Federation and its President Rocco Pozzulo, celebrated with numerous guests, journalists and key political and institutional figures that included Worldchefs’ President
Though President Su passed away in May 2018, his legacy will live on forever in the many wonderful things he did for China, the Chinese Cuisine Association and the country’s hospitality industry. President Su was the link between Worldchefs and China and it was through his vision and keen foresight that opened China’s culinary scene to the rest of the world. His efforts throughout the years led to Chinese chefs competing in the Culinary Olympics, being active members on Worldchefs committees and the growth of young chefs in China. We celebrate the life of President Su and remember his vast achievements and legacy.

LATIN-AMERICAN COUNTRIES TO BENEFIT FROM CULINARY TECHNIQUES GUIDE
WORLDCHEFS AND THE AMERICAN CULINARY FEDERATION MOURN THE PASSING OF L. EDWIN BROWN With the passing of L. Edwin Brown on 25 May 2018, America’s culinary scene has lost one of its most illustrious figures, but his legacy will surely live on. Born in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania, Mr Brown started his career in the food industry at The Nittany Lion Inn when he was 17 years old. A dedicated worker, he involved himself in all areas of the inn and earned enough to cover his university tuition. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in hotel administration in 1958 and was promoted to the inn’s food and beverage manager, a post he held till 1969. As an educator, he curated a three-year, 6,000-hour apprentice programme that was designed to transform culinary students into professionals. The programme was adopted by the army, recognized by the Department of Labour and is still considered the model for modern culinary education. He received many accolades and awards for his work but not only was he passionate about food, cooking and travel, he was also extraordinarily kind. “He knew everyone’s name, even the names of their children and in turn, everyone knew him. I never went to a competition or event where ‘Uncle Ed’ didn’t have friends everywhere. Any chef who has ever attended school owes him a debt”, said ACF Board President Stafford DeCambra. 8 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE

ASKIHMCA STUDENTS CONFERRED WITH WORLDCHEFS COMMIS CHEF CERTIFICATION
ASPIRING CULINARY STUDENTS CAN REJOICE AS WORLDCHEFS LAUNCHES WORLDCHEFS ACADEMY At its 38th Biennial Congress held from 11 to 14 July 2018, Worldchefs officially launched the Worldchefs Academy, an online platform and mobile app designed to offer a culinary education to aspiring students without any means, mobility or flexibility to attend a fulltime culinary course. Funded by the Nestlé Pro Gastronomia Foundation and created with the expertise of the Worldchefs Academy Development faculty, the curriculum covers the basics of culinary professionalism, food service operations, food hygiene and sanitation, basic cooking and culinary nutrition. The program can be used as a complete curriculum on its own, to supplement other courses or even as a theoretical component
to a kitchen apprenticeship. Offered free of charge, it was designed to provide students with a flexibility to learn anytime, anywhere. After completing their final online assessment, students will receive their Worldchefs precommis chef certificate and badge – a critical first step for those looking to join the professional kitchen. Said Worldchefs President Thomas Gugler, “At Worldchefs, it’s important to give aspiring individuals the opportunity to pursue a proper, wellresearched and developed learning system. And proper learning means from a-z, ensuring that this opportunity is available all over the world, allowing them to travel and really build on their career.”
It was a proud day for more than 100 students from ASK Institute of Hotel Management and Culinary Arts (IHMCA) as they were conferred with Worldchefs Commis Chef certification at the Sahar Pavilion Hotel in Bangalore, on 18 August 2018. The students were from different programmes, including Master Diploma in Culinary Arts and Patisserie program and International Diploma in Hotel & Hospitality Management. The convocation ceremony began with a welcome address by Prof. Antony Mahendran, Director of ASKIHMCA followed by the presentation of the certificates by Chef John J Clancy, Worldchefs Education Director and Senior Lecturer, Culinary Arts of Dublin Institute of Technology. Many of the students shared their experience on this journey and also thanked the management of ASKIHMCA for providing them with Industrial Exposure Training and the opportunity to do their placement programme at five-star hotels in India and overseas.
CHEF MENTOR AWARDS HONOURS PROMINENT WELSH CHEFS The inaugural Chef Mentor Awards, a two-day event held as part of the H&C Expo, brought together leaders from restaurant, hotel, catering and education establishments across the UK to celebrate those who have trained and nurtured chefs. The award for Best Hotel Chef Mentor went to Executive Head Chef Hywel Jones of Lucknam Park at Colerne. “Amazing, it’s quite humbling. To be a good mentor, you have to have been mentored by good people. I’ve had some very
good mentors during my career, including my parents”, says chef Hywel. The Best Contract Catering Chef Mentor award was given to Colin Gray of Capital Cuisine. Chef Colin, Vice-President of the Culinary Association of Wales and a Worldchefs Judge was shocked to receive the award. “I didn’t expect to win. I’ve been involved in mentoring chefs over the years without expecting recognition. To be honoured in this way is very humbling and will hopefully inspire other Welsh chefs to become mentors”, says chef Colin. WWW.WORLDCHEFS.ORG

MYANMAR TOUR FOR HUMANITY A CHEF’S SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY World Chefs Without Borders (WCWB) launched its 1st Chefs Social Responsibility global event with the Myanmar Tour for Humanity in Yangon, on the 10th Anniversary since Cyclone Nargis. 60 Chefs from 22 Worldchefs National Member Societies travelled to Yangon at their own expense to raise funds together with the Myanmar Chefs Association and to cook for zero hunger in a world where humanity must come first.

WORLDCHEFS – WORLD CHEFS WITHOUT BORDERS
WCWB Chairman Willment Leong said “Chefs may not be able to change lives, but with our Chefs Social Responsibility initiative, we can make a difference. Convert your ego to sharing and it will not only make you a great chef, but also a great person.”
FULL SUPPORT The tour kicked off at Pullman Hotel Yangon with a VIP Gala Dinner for 200 guests led by Chefs: Tony Khoo, Myanmar; Chef Tony Chang, Taiwan; Chef Mak Kam Kui, Hong Kong; Chef Louis Tay, Singapore; Chef Buddy Trinidad, Philippines; Chef KK Yau, Malaysia and Master Pastry Chef Louis Tanuhadi from Indonesia, who arranged all chocolate and dessert items for this event, and sponsored a Chocolate Art Vocational Training for Myanmar Young Chefs, creating 25 chocolate art displays and 750 pralines for the Gala Dinner as a real WCWB Vocational Training opportunity. Special guests attending the event included Myanmar Hotels and Tourism Union Minister, His Excellency U Ohn Maung; UBM Myanmar General Manager, Fraser Hawkes, who also contributed personally and later joined the Chefs on the Tour; and the Tour partners, sponsors and supporters. All funds raised at the dinner contributed to the Myanmar humanity aid and relief initiative led by Oliver Esser Soe Thuet, President of the Myanmar Chefs Association. Throughout the WCWB Myanmar Tour for Humanity, chefs would use their skills and dedication to raise awareness of those lacking sufficient resources for their communities and families.
FOR THE COMMUNITY “Hunger should not be tolerated and the basic necessities of life must be provided to those who need our help. We came together in Myanmar for this tour because we are chefs, we have no borders!” – Willment Leong The first community event on the WCWB Myanmar Tour for Humanity organized by Chef Oliver E. Soe Thet, President of the Myanmar Chefs Association was held at the Shwedagon Pagoda, the most sacred Buddhist pagoda in Myanmar, where the Chefs prepared and distributed 4500 meals to the local community. It was the first time this type of event was approved by the Yangon State Government and was strongly supported by the Hotels and Tourism Union Ministry. The Tour continued by boat on the Ayeyarwady River Delta. When they landed in Twantay City, the Chefs were greeted on the pier by Abbot U Yi Wa Ra Seyadaw with 150 orphan children of the Dhamma Linkara Monastery and 50 students accompanied by Mr. Zaw Kyi, a Free School teacher & philanthropist. Stationary packs with school supplies and dry food relief packs were distributed to the children, and the Chefs purchased vegetables from the local market to encourage its economy and then prepared meals on the boat for the villages ahead. The Chefs were introduced to Myat Bhone Nadi, a survivor of Cyclone Nargis currently living at the Dhamma Linkara Monastery and his friend who helped share Myat’s brave story. WWW.WORLDCHEFS.ORG

WORLDCHEFS – WORLD CHEFS WITHOUT BORDERS
My name is Myat Bhone Nadi. I was born in a small village of Iodputta Township, Ayerrawady Division. My parents worked in the farm and took care of 4 children. Our village ran out of luck when I was 6. That day, the weather was fine in the morning and afternoon. But in the evening, it’s getting windy and heavy rain. We thought it would be another bad weather like every year. When it started to get dark (around 7), the rain increased and the wind started demolishing our village. The village was flooding and our house was in water. Our family and the villagers ran and stayed in a big boat from the village. The water level was higher and the wind speed destroyed every house and the trees. The boat was moved away by water waves and we started screaming. My father tried to tie the boat to a tree nearby. He took the rope and dived into the water. But that was the last time I saw my father. He sank. The boat also sank a few minutes later and everyone on board was separated. I found a wood in the water and grabbed firmly but I passed out. I woke up on an island on the dead bodies.The dead bodies were everywhere. Some villagers on that island saved me. I survived but I lost all my family and friends. 3 days later, the rescue team arrived to the island called Main Ma la. A woman from that village told me that she wanted to adopt me but I wanted to come to Twontay Township. Sayadaw Yay Wa Ta from Dhamma Linkara Monastery saved all the children of Nargis Cyclone’s victims. He takes care of us and gives us education. Now I am 16 and studying 9th grade in High School. Thousands of villagers and children from 20 villages gathered together between Napyaw su Village and Ka yin Kyaung Village to welcome the Chefs and show appreciation for their humanitarian efforts. In addition to the 10,000 meals prepared and provided to the villagers and children, sporting items and WCWB teddy bears were also shared. A total of 8100 dry food relief packs was distributed throughout the day by the Chefs. As a finale to the boat trip, the Chefs released 50,000 young milk fish in the Ayeyarwady River Delta near Ka yin Kyaung village to help replenish the food supply for the years ahead. In addition to participating in the Tour, Chef Eddy Nielsen, the oldest participating Chef (68 years old) demonstrated another example of CSR - Chef Social Responsibility by donating a variety of slightly used kitchen knives that he brought from Denmark to a local culinary school. WCWB acknowledged all the participating chefs and presented them with WCWB Medals of Humanity during the WCWB Myanmar Tour for Humanity Farewell and Appreciation Dinner. The VIPs for this event included the 12 local labourers that assisted in the delivery of the dry food relief packs during the Tour, who were also awarded WCWB Medals of Humanity for all their tireless efforts and contributions. Worldchefs Managing Director, Ragnar Fridriksson and media specialist Linh To were also recognized for all their support and contributions, and a very special appreciation was extended to Oliver E. Soe Thet and his wife, Khin Khet Khet Khaing for organizing such an incredible and monumental humanitarian global initiative. Myanmar Chef Association President Oliver E. Soe Thet shared the country’s appreciation with the Chefs, “The Myanmar people in Yangon, the Delta and throughout the Nation, are proud and thankful for the efforts and support of World Chefs Without Borders, in particular the 60 Chefs from 22 countries that came together and initiated such a once-in-a-lifetime event in Yangon and Nargis Delta.” WWW.WORLDCHEFS.ORG

WORLDCHEFS â€“ WORLD CHEFS WITHOUT BORDERS
WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
BEHIND THE SCENES WILLMENT LEONG Chairman of World Chefs Without Borders shares his thoughts
Communication was our biggest challenge. In order to save cost so we can reserve more funds for the villagers, we did not engage any professional event company to organize the event. The entire 9 months of planning and execution was solely done by the World Chefs Without Borders committee. This meant that on top of their daily jobs, the chefs had to communicate with all participating chefs and partners in Myanmar. HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER EVENTS?
HOW DID THIS IDEA COME ABOUT? It has always been our dream and plan to gather passionate chefs to participate in a major charity event. Most chefs are very passionate in helping others but the issue we identified was that there is a lack of a dedicated platform, which led to us pioneering this project. Each chef needs to contribute 1000 euros plus their own flight to travel to Myanmar. After all the costs have been deducted, the remaining amount went to 12,000 hot meals and 8,000 dried food relief packs for the villagers in Myanmar. WHAT WAS THE INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION LIKE? We had 65 chefs from 24 countries, which included the Korea Chefs Association President and Indonesia Chefs Association President.
Most of our past humanitarian efforts focused more on responding to natural disasters. With this event, we are able to plan and arrange to meet the villagers and spend time to understand their needs. WHAT ELSE CAN CHEFS EXPECT FROM WORLD CHEFS WITHOUT BORDERS? More of such events, and we are exploring new platforms to encourage more chefs to contribute to Chefs Social Responsibility (C.S.R). This is my personal belief: If you donâ€™t believe in helping others without any return, it does not mean that others will not do so. If you cannot perform your C.S.R due to whatever reason, you can still do your part and encourage them. At the end of the day, we must recognise we are chefs and we have no borders.

WORLDCHEFS â€“ FEED THE PLANET
#FEEDTHEPLANET The planet is not in good shape. What can we do about it? 16 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE
WORLDCHEFS – FEED THE PLANET
THE FACTS We produce enough food to feed approximately 9 billion people each year. Of the 4 billion metric tons of food we produce each year, one third is wasted, costing the global economy nearly $750 billion annually. 1 in 9 people go to bed hungry every night. Based on a study from the Ministry of Agriculture in France, we have acknowledged that within the collective catering, we waste an average of 167 grams of food per person. In the commercial catering sector, we waste an average of 211 grams of food per person.That includes the traditional restaurants with 230 grams, the gastronomic restaurants with 229 grams and finally the fast food with 175 grams.
WHAT’S THE PLAN? 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. Because we Love Food, we Hate Waste and we want you to Save Money, we devoted 1 full day at the Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to talk and listen to different top keynote speakers to try finding the solution. Chris Koetke, the Feed the Planet Chairman, introduced to 7 000 chefs a new program designed by Worldchefs called: The Food Waste Challenge! The Worldchefs Food Waste Challenge for Foodservice Operations is a way for restaurateurs, chefs, and cooks to learn about how to reduce food waste in their kitchens and commit to reducing their own food waste.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE How can we contribute and better the lives of others?
WORLD CHEFS WITHOUT BORDERS COMMITTEE WILLMENT LEONG Chairman – Thailand
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED AS CHAIRMAN OF THIS COMMITTEE? I was appointed by Worldchefs in 2013 to be the World Chefs Without Borders Committee Chairman HOW IS THE WCWB COMMITTEE STRUCTURED? We have 10 committee members from 10 different countries who are each responsible for various roles such as organising a fund-raising gala with a solid background award-winning culinary competitions, the social media team promoting WCWB, education team conducting workshops for the young / professional chefs in term of charity, food waste and skill development, emergency task force team for natural disasters and financial team. WHAT TYPES OF PROJECTS OR INITIATIVES CAN WORLDCHEFS MEMBERS EXPECT FROM YOUR COMMITTEE? Our committee is experienced in large scale coordination in regard to aid relief efforts for natural disasters, organising a fund-raising event for either a local charity fund or towards WCWB global emergency relief fund.
WHAT CAN WORLDCHEFS MEMBERS LOOK FORWARD TO FROM YOUR COMMITTEE IN 2018 AND 2019?
Most of WCWB project or initiatives are posted on Worldchefs.org, the World Chefs Without Borders Facebook page or they can contact the WCWB chairman directly to seek more information.
WCWB launched our 1st Myanmar Tour for Humanity from 9-13 June 2018 and the objective was to encourage chefs to contribute in our very own initiatives CSR (Chefs Social Responsibility). We had 60 chefs from 22 countries respond, and each participating chef contributed 1000 euros to cover all expenses during their stay in Myanmar and the balance contribution benefitted 12,150 people in Myanmar. We hope to launch this initiative on a yearly basis in different parts of the world.
WHAT IS THE KIND OF WORK THAT GOES BEHIND THE PLANNING OF YOUR PROJECTS OR INITIATIVES?
HOW CAN WORLDCHEFS MEMBERS PLAY A PART TO HELP YOUR COMMITTEE?
Communication is the most important part of our projects. To communicate within WCWB Team and updating one another on the progress of each project milestone is the key to our successful work. Apart from communication, we will also send our team ahead to travel and access the situation before working on the entire project plan.
Not many chefs can appreciate the true meaning behind CSR. But they need to understand that culinary competitions are about personal gain, while CSR is for the benefit of others. We hope all Worldchefs country presidents can encourage or support their chef participant in our CSR initiatives. Perhaps they can set up a funding program for those

passionate chefs in their respective countries as some chefs really want to contribute but lack the personal funds, and country presidents can play the role by supporting them. HOW CAN YOUNG CHEFS SUPPORT THE WCWB COMMITTEE? Young chefs could be as one of the driving forces behind WCWB by attending our “WCWB traveling workshop” which we will launch at a later stage. Apart from attending workshops which will help them gain a better understanding of our work, the young chefs could also participate in our projects and gain experience that most workshops cannot provide, and at the same time network with those chefs that are attending. Any young chefs that are interested in supporting or getting involved in WCWB can always reach out to us through social media platforms. WCWB welcomes everyone! OVER THE NEXT 2 YEARS, WHAT IS THE OVERALL IMPACT THE WCWB COMMITTEE HOPES TO MAKE? We hope that each association can set up their very own WCWB Committee within their country. Apart from only young chef club, competition and education, it would be a good idea for them to organize an annual Tour for Humanity program in their country and also seek more passionate chefs to join their team. WHERE DO YOU HOPE TO SEE WORLDCHEFS IN 5 YEARS? Sharing of different types of cuisines is the key to being a successful chef. Hopefully we can see more multi-national chefs, cultures and cuisines involved in the Worldchefs platform. We are Worldchefs and we represent the world’s cuisine. COMPLETE THE SENTENCE – WORLDCHEFS IS... A platform for creating opportunities for chefs and at the same time promoting the roots of our cuisine to the world.
GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT OF YOUNG CHEFS COMMITTEE ALAN ORREAL-LIANG Vice Chairman – Australia
WHAT IS THE MISSION OF THE GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT OF YOUNG CHEFS COMMITTEE? Our Mission is… To drive and encourage the development of Young Chefs Clubs to our members around the world while mentoring and leading our Global Young Chef Ambassadors to develop and deliver initiatives such as the Young Chef Culinary Culture Exchange program and the Billy Gallagher Young Chefs Forum. Through our four pillars of Friendship, Education, Cuisine and Culture we provide mentoring support to our global network of Young Chefs Clubs and deliver a world class educational mentoring forum.

WORLDCHEFS – INSIDE WORLDCHEFS
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED IN THIS COMMITTEE? I have had the great fortune to be directly involved long before our committee was formed. It was one of the greatest privileges of my life to have met Dr Billy Gallagher at the Kyoto World Congress in 2002 where the very first Billy Gallagher Young Chefs Forum was held and where after Billy continued to mentor me. We worked together to continue to build the Billy Gallagher Young Chef Forum. It was 2008 that the Committee took on a formal structure where I have since had the honor of working with Andy Cuthbert, our amazing committee members and Ambassadors.
grassroots organization and we will always need people on the ground being effective at home helping Young Chefs in your association. HOW DO YOU GET YOUNG CHEFS INVOLVED ON THE GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT OF YOUNG CHEFS COMMITTEE? We are constantly on the look out to develop young talent and to have them join us on our committee, particularly at the congress. It’s the perfect time to assess leadership qualities and to find our next set of Ambassadors to become future leaders. Mostly we encourage the Young Chefs to focus on their Young Chefs Club to help it to grow and support the Young Chefs in their area.
HOW IS THE GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT OF YOUNG CHEFS COMMITTEE STRUCTURED?
HOW CAN YOUNG CHEFS GET INVOLVED WITH THEIR OWN WORLDCHEFS NATIONAL MEMBER SOCIETY?
Our Committee is structured very flat and equally yet unique. We have the Chairman and Vice Chair and beside us we have the Committee that is formed from a global prospective ensuring that we have representation from all continents with two Mentors that are usually Continental Directors or Country Presidents. Next, we have a growing working group of Ambassador Mentors and the Ambassadors themselves. Ambassador Mentors are usually past Ambassadors and as the name suggests they guide and Mentor the Ambassadors.
Become a member and get involved, ask your National Society if they have a YCC and how can you help to make it better. I encourage anyone to log onto the Worldchefs web pages www.worldchefs.org and read about Young Chefs and our committee contacts are all there.
WHAT TYPES OF PROJECTS OR INITIATIVES CAN WORLDCHEFS MEMBERS EXPECT FROM YOUR COMMITTEE? Part of our main mission is to drive and encourage the development of Young Chefs Clubs to our members around the world, this we do by direct engagement with member countries. We can provide support and direction suggestions on a club formation and structure and give many examples of activities that Young Chefs can do to make their club a place that other likeminded Young Chefs would want to join. Our Ambassadors assist, drive local initiatives and give support to the YCCs in their regions. We are responsible to continue the legacy of Dr. Billy Gallagher and the Forum for Young Chefs held at each and every congress. WHAT CAN MEMBERS LOOK FORWARD TO FROM YOUR COMMITTEE IN 2018 AND 2019? Currently we are building a Young Chef Culinary Culture Exchange programme, an extension of the Billy Gallagher Young Chefs Tour. This is an exciting time for Young Chefs and opportunities abound, we will seek out and engage with the Young Chefs Clubs to collaborate together further and have combined events. WHAT IS THE KIND OF WORK THAT GOES BEHIND THE PLANNING OF YOUR PROJECTS OR INITIATIVES? We have a group monthly skype conference call to the global team and then many smaller calls and messages to individual Ambassadors and YCCs to help support their ideas. The Billy Gallagher Young Chefs Forum is many hundreds of hours of planning and coordination planed over 18 months. This year we have 250 Young Chefs from all over the world coming together to enjoy the forum to network and learn together. HOW CAN WORLDCHEFS MEMBERS PLAY A PART TO HELP YOUR COMMITTEE? The best way to help us would be to support your local YCC to get started or to help them grow with your National body. This is a 20 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE

Our facebook page WorldChefs Young Chefs Club www.facebook.com/ wacsyoungchefs/ and Blog www.wacsyoungchefs.blogspot.com. There you can find many resources and our contact information of the committee and Ambassadors for your region and links to all the Young Chefs Clubs. OVER THE NEXT 2 YEARS, WHAT IS THE OVERALL IMPACT THE GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT OF YOUNG CHEFS COMMITTEE HOPES TO MAKE? We hope to continue to build our network of Young Chefs Clubs worldwide and build our communication, engagement and relevance within our Society of WorldChefs. Our long term goals include creating a network of support through which we can help to educate and promote culinary brotherhood and friendship, helping member countries to create a safe, inviting environment for Young Chefs to meet, learn and share together and to foster engagement with the National Associations, and growing the future leaders of tomorrow. WHERE DO YOU HOPE TO SEE WORLDCHEFS IN 5 YEARS? I think Worldchefs is on the right track, so over the next five years I would like to see our society have an even larger influence on the global food industry. Perhaps with greater engagement and a working relationship with relevant universities and research institutes for the study of future food production and education, governments for policy inclusion, NGOs for the delivery of initiatives and other industry leaders for the betterment of the industry as a whole. Chefs are decision makers and have the ability to influence trends and shift markets. More importantly, we have a primary responsibility to pass on our skills through education and training. Furthermore, we work hard to protect our planet and its limited resources for future generations. COMPLETE THE SENTENCE – WORLDCHEFS IS ... WORLDCHEFS is a global leader in Culinary Arts and an influencer of food trends, a leader in Culinary Certification and a home for Chefs all over the world to network learn and share best practices while fostering the growth of leadership for the betterment of our associations and industry as a whole.

FEED THE PLANET AND SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE SHONAH CHALMERS Vice Chairmam – Canada
Many hands make light work, is how the committee is able to be successful in executing as many plans as they currently carry out. With conference calls, many emails and assistance from our partners Electrolux & AIESEC we managed to have several irons in the fire at the same time. There are culinary centres being built all over the world where there wasn’t any culinary support for young chefs previously, and many new schools are implementing the sustainability curriculum with the support of our committee.
WHAT IS THE MISSION OF THE FEED THE PLANET AND SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE?
WHAT CAN WE LOOK FORWARD TO FROM YOUR COMMITTEE IN 2018 AND 2019?
The mission of the Feed the Planet and Sustainability Committee is to motivate culinary professionals to improve the global situation of sustainable food consumption through education and support systems in partnership with AIESEC and Electrolux.
Our committee is excited to release a new sustainability proposal that all members of Worldchefs can participate in. With this, we can all make a huge change in reducing food waste! There are also many regional educational programs planned for this time frame that members can be a part of if they are interested. Our hope is that all Worldchefs members can get motivated to participate in their local initiatives and can look to our committee for some effective plans and ideas to help facilitate their culinary plans.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED ON THIS COMMITTEE? I eagerly joined the Feed the Planet and Sustainability Committee as Vice Chairman in December 2016, as I had a passion for the ideas held by this committee and since I’m in the education sector, it seemed like a great fit for me. WHAT TYPES OF PROJECTS OR INITIATIVES CAN WORLDCHEFS MEMBERS EXPECT FROM YOUR COMMITTEE? Our Committee facilitates two very different efforts, the first is to help support many different culinary education sites for those in need globally by creating new culinary education centres, where there are currently none available. The second is to share an amazing fully comprehensive food-service specific sustainability curriculum. This sustainability education is available to culinary schools and Worldchefs associations around the world. We can also facilitate the success of a local initiative, by sharing our current successful practices.
OVER THE NEXT 2 YEARS, WHAT IS THE OVERALL IMPACT THE FEED THE PLANET AND SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE HOPES TO MAKE? Our greatest hope is to have sustainability champions from every Worldchefs country, to spread the word and act as a leader on the subject. The objectives of sustainability and alleviation of hunger are within our grasp to have a major impact on if we all do our part, to educate ourselves and share the best practices in all of our regions. Aligning our efforts with like-minded organizations may help our greater cause to have a stronger united voice.

International Chefs Day 20 October 2018 38 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE
WORLDCHEFS – INTERNATIONAL CHEFS DAY
INTERNATIONAL CHEFS DAY
The power of Chefs’ Education HOW DID IT ALL START? International Chefs Day was first established in 2004 by the esteemed Dr. Bill Gallagher, who was the incumbent President of the World Association of Chefs Societies, Worldchefs. On October 20th every year, chefs get together to give back to the community through education, while also using the chance to advance the career of chefs and help change their local communities. Since 2016, Worldchefs have been collaborating with Nestlé Professional to create different themes for Chefs around the world to celebrate. This year’s theme, “Healthy Foods for Growing Up” aims to teach kids to eat like their healthy (every day) heroes. By teaching children the importance of eating healthier, they will adopt healthier eating habits and become healthy succesful adults.
WHEN YOU ARE A CHEF, YOU CAN EDUCATE YOUR COMMUNITY AND TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD As chefs, we are the custodians of the world’s food supply. We have a role to play in changing the way the world grow, cook and enjoy food on a large scale. In this hyperconnected world, we cannot lose sight of the power of chefs transforming society! Through history, chefs have broken boundaries and transformed societies:, Auguste Escoffier, Paul Bocuse, Alain Ducasse and Andre Chang. Where would the culinary world have been if a chef like Joel Robuchon (who wanted to become a priest in his early days) chose a different path instead?
THE COST OF UNHEALTHY EATING IS HIGH! According to the WHO, the global population of children younger than 15 years of age has increased, from 0.87 billion in 1950to 1.96 billion in 2017. Unfortunately, 23% suffer from stunted growth, 6% are overweight and 11% are not achieving their growth potential. This large demographic is a special target group to food marketers as they tend to influence their parents’ buying decisions while grocery shopping or eating at restaurants. The situation is worsened by the fact that these children will have their own purchasing power in the near future.
Each day, the fast food industry spends almost 5 million dollars marketing products high in sugar, fat and salt, while also suggesting portion sizes grossly disproportionate to a child’s energy needs.. Remarkably, studies demonstrate that even very young children exposed to persuasive advertisement can develop food cravings for unhealthy foods that they have never even tasted! food cravings for unhealthy foods that they have never even tasted! What could we do with that amount of money spent… • In Nigeria for example, “the effect of food insecurity on children’s health is obvious; children, particularly those under age 5, are vulnerable to life-threatening malnutrition. Less obvious is the devastating impact of the crisis on children’s education. When there is not enough to eat, school can quickly become an afterthought” wrote Chris Tidey from the United Nations • “The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is running out of food. About a quarter of the population – some 6 million people – don’t have enough to eat, according to a new report by UN agencies. Nearly a million of them are children under the age of five” wrote Chris Niles from the United Nations • According to Rose Reisman, a nutrition & dietetics specialist, it seems cheaper to eat junk food than to select the healthier options. For example, a burger from a fast food joint or a slice of pizza can cost as little as $1.99 which would certainly be cheaper than buying ground beef and buns, pizza dough, cheese and pepperoni. But you can’t think of that as a comparison. Processed fast foods usually have fewer nutrients than homemade meals and furthermore, by choosing the fast food option you’re increasing your intake of salt, fat and sugar. Overtime, these foods can lead to obesity and chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart and stroke disease and certain cancers.
EATING IN A RESTAURANT IS AN OUTSTANDING MOMENT FOR EVERYBODY, REALLY...? Dining in restaurants is a popular activity because it sometimes allows for better communication than dining at home. Furthermore, diners have the opportunity to taste new cuisines that they’ve never tried before. When looking at the chef ’s special dishes, you can actually feel your stomach growling! But what about children’s menus? Unfortunately, they are a “necessary burden” or a last minute afterthought for most restaurants. Very rarely, do they receive the same attention as the “Chefs Specialties” on the a la carte menu? In most cases, childrens options are restricted to an uninspiring mac & cheese or the salty fries alongside a burger bun with two slices of tomatoes that give the illusion there are some vegetables in this dish.
WORLDCHEFS & NESTLÉ PROFESSIONAL HAVE IDENTIFIED THE EDUCATION NEEDS… As part of the world’s largest Food and Beverage Company, Nestlé Professional has access to extensive research on food preferences and healthier eating. Food preferences are formed in the first two years of life. Most are learned, but some are innate. A child’s food preferences directly affect WWW.WORLDCHEFS.ORG

their eating behaviour, which in turn is linked to overall health, wellness, and the formation of obesity. This has a direct consequence on the formation of potentially lifelong, unhealthy food preferences associated with the development of obesity and all that comes with it. Although food preferences can be unlearned, this is often a monumental task as we age.
THIS IS WHERE CHEFS CAN PLAY A ROLE! Investing in kids by providing an “eating better” education can accelerate the fight against stunted growth, obesity and wasted growth. There’s overwhelming evidence that educating young children is one of the most effective ways to change the world’s behaviour. However, the fight against unhealthy food and kids’ education on eating better is not enough. Worldchefs have therefore decided to fight back to make the world a better place for us! As we celebrate International Chefs Day, let’s shout out strong messages: “Empower chefs” “Connect with chefs” “Bring chefs together to create a network” because Worldchefs & Nestlé Professional truly think that International Chefs Day is the key to enabling healthier eating!
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE? All chefs from around the world are invited to host a “Healthy Foods for Growing Up” workshop in their local community.

FOOD FOR CHANGE: SUSTAINABLE EATING At the Philippine Sustainable Gastronomy held from 2-3 August 2018, the conference focused on how sustainable food practices could minimise climate change.
WE BID GOODBYE TO THE GREAT JOEL ROBUCHON French celebrity chef Joel Robuchon passed away in August 2018, aged 73. Chef Robuchon was renowned for his perfectionism and his preference for keeping his food as simple as it can be, so that the individual ingredients can shine. “The older I get, the more I realise the truth is – the simpler the food, the more exceptional it can be,” he told Business Insider in 2014. “I never try to marry more than 3 flavours in one dish. I like knowing that the dishes are identifiable and the ingredients within them easy to detect.” He opened his restaurant Jamin at age 36, and within a year it won a Michelin star. Over the course of his career, he would go on to earn more than 30 Michelin stars, the most of any chef ever. In 1989, he was named “Chef of the Century” by the Gault Millau restaurant guide. “When an old man dies, a library burns down,” Joel Robuchon once said.
Key topics included sustainable farming, discovering local produce, ethical food consumption, reducing food waste and positive action plans for sustainable eating.
GO VEGAN? NOT ALL CHEFS ARE READY Though the vegan lifestyle has seen an increase in popularity recently, with celebrities such as Beyoncé and J.Lo adopting the vegan lifestyle and cutting out meat and dairy from their diets, not all fine-dining restaurants are so keen to jump onboard. After all, how would they craft their dishes without meat and dairy? When asked if they would adopt the vegan lifestyle, it might surprise you that certain chefs were open to the idea, at least when eating at home. It’s hard to ignore the facts that veganism can be healthier than other diets and is environmentally friendly too.
IN&OUT OF THE KITCHEN HEAD OVER HEELS FOR QUANTUM PRO We’ve got 3 reasons why chefs love the premium kitchenware line by Q Industries: 1. To see the quality of the craftsmanship, Q Industries goes to the extent of cutting the induction pot in half, so they’re confident of all the details. 2.The handles of their frying pans are all intentionally hollow, so it’s less likely for you to burn yourself. To ensure absolute hygiene, spot welding is used for all pots and pans, meaning there are no rivets to trap dirt. 3.

A CULINARY TOUR OF PERU From 23 September to 7 October, four of the world’s leading chefs went on a tour to explore Peru’s rich culinary landscape. The chefs are Ana Ros (Hisa Franko, Slovenia), Daniela Soto-Innes (Cosme, USA/Mexico), James Lowe (Lyle’s, England) and Jock Zonfrillo (Orana, Australia) and they travelled through the four gastronomic regions of Peru – Tumbes, Iquitos, Cusco and the Colca Valley in Arequipa. The trip was organized by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, who will produce articles, films and photographs of the chefs’ experiences.
Here’s what they found: 1. Efficient equipment is now standard in many restaurants. Most restaurants use energy-efficient lighting, and many use U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Energy Star®-rated kitchen equipment. Water-saving innovations are also gaining ground, from lowflow toilets to efficient pre-rinse spray valves. 2. Restaurant operators are recycling and focused on packaging. Large majorities of restaurant operators engage in recycling. Most restaurant operators source at least some packaging and supplies made of recycled content.
A GOURMET JOURNEY THROUGH TAIWAN AND JAPAN Executive Chef Agustin Balbi of HAKU who was named Best New Chef 2016 by Hong Kong Tatler, and chef Kai Ho of one-Michelin starred Tairroir in Taipei City joined hands to present a 9-course dinner with cocktail pairings from one of Japan’s top cocktail bars. Exclusive dishes that represent the cuisines of both restaurants included Les Poisson du Jour with fish skin, HAKU’s house-fermented miso, Hokkaido potatoes and leeks; and Creole Duck with hibiscus celery, shishito-hoisin and “flat pancakes”. No excellent dining experience is complete without an equally robust drinks program, a task best handled by Shuzo Nagumo of Mixology Salon (#40 of Asia’s 50 Best Bars), whose inventive, award-winning cocktails have been designed to complement each dish. 44 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE
MORE RESTAURANTS ARE CHOOSING INNOVATIVE, SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES The National Restaurant Association has noted an increasing trend of restauranteurs who are adopting new methods of operating more sustainably.
3. Reducing food waste is an emerging area for action. About half of restaurant operators track food waste in their operations, with many of them doing so daily. More than one in five operators donate edible leftovers to charity and more than one in ten compost at least some of their leftover food. 4. Sustainability is a mainstay on restaurant menus. Restaurant operators and chefs say environmental sustainability, local sourcing and food waste reduction are among the top trends affecting restaurant menus. As both operators and consumers increase their knowledge about where and how food is produced, menus are also evolving to reflect the growing request for transparency.

DON’T BREAK THE HOLLANDAISE! Stress is part and parcel of a chef ’s life. The difference is how you cope with it. For Jeremy Abbey, it’s all about learning how to ‘emulsify your life’. BY JEREMY ABBEY WCMC, CEC, CEPC, CCE, CCA
Every cook and chef at some point in his or her career has made a hollandaise sauce. This lovely, rich buttery, slightly acidic sauce with the ever-so-slight hint of spice from cayenne is one of the classic Mother Sauces and on menus across the globe. Making this sauce requires the perfect balance of temperature and ingredients to create a suspended emulsion of liquid and fat. That is when the challenge really starts; it must hold this emulsion for the entire length of service. I will never forget holding my breath when I was a cook and the chef reached for the hollandaise I made to sauce the lobster dish, hoping that it was still holding on to its emulsion. Only once, in my time at that French restaurant did it come flying across the kitchen, narrowly missing my head. The chef was clearly unhappy. The sauce had broken. What did I learn from that night? Make sure temperatures are perfect when executing a hollandaise (bonus lesson: how to make a hollandaise in under a minute). 46 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE
Every cook, chef, dishwasher and expediter has to balance multiple tasks while working in a kitchen. If you have worked in this industry for any length of time, you’ve developed exceptional skills in multi-tasking. Chefs that stay in the industry and seek to enhance their skills, learn not only to balance all the tasks necessary to run a successful operation but also how to make time to better themselves. Often this comes at the cost of having a personal life (no news here). In today’s society more than ever, the industry needs to focus on our own personal mental health. Just like the hollandaise, chefs are slightly “acidic,” can be a little bit “spicy,” but above all are warm, heart-soothing and full of love. To continue in this industry, all chefs have a desire to please people; from the customer, to his or her employees, every kitchen employee is in the hospitality business.This need to please often comes at the cost for our own mental stability. We are consumed with orders, execution, hiring, and training, developing….the list goes on and on. Rarely do we take
IN&OUT OF THE KITCHEN – SUSTAINBILITY
time to reflect on our own thoughts and actions and discover what we need. More times than not, our thoughts are flooded with “How could I have executed that last dish better?” The words of Salvador Dali, “Have no fear of perfection….you will never reach it,” constantly comes to my mind. Recently scientist have begun to study the hospitality industry and the impact of stress on its workers that are common. According to the study 2013, Work-related Stress in Hotels: An Analysis of the Causes and Effects among Frontline Hotel Employees in the Kumasi Metropolis, Ghana, the causes that lead to stress in the industry are confirmed; long hours, customer demands, low wages, constant rush. All of these factors lead to work related stress and well, they are not going away. Almost 300 front line employees were surveyed in the study and the results confirmed what we all know. 39.9% of the respondents reported they feel frustrated when stressed; about 30% report a lack of motivation and inability to concentrate. 22.3% put on weight when stressed and 10.8% reported an elevation in blood pressure (Journal of Tourism and Hospitality, Wireko-Gyebi Sampson* and Oheneba Akyeampong
Struggles exist in the culinary industry and anyone that has worked long enough in the field can relate to the concerns. Some of these struggles are what draw us to the kitchen and keep us going. The joy it brings when people are happy with the food we create, seeing someone learn a new skill, achieving the targeted food cost are all items that fuel us on a regular basis. Now more than ever before it is more important that we take time to reflect on how we manage these struggles internally to achieve a work-life emulsification. If the butter is too hot, the hollandaise will not hold. If the acid is to strong, it will not hold. Take the time to take care of yourself. Develop the tools necessary for you to create a work-life balance. Practice and practice to hold that emulsion as long as you can. By taking care of ourselves, we are better equipped to take care of others both in and out of the kitchen.
Department of Hospitality and Tourism, Christ Apostolic University College, Kumasi, Ghana, West Africa). These findings are probably not surprising to most chefs and cooks. So how do we overcome the challenges of the industry without engaging in destructive behaviors that are all too prevalent in the culinary world?
“DON’T BREAK THE HOLLANDAISE” Don’t break the Hollandaise. The egg yolks must be cooked to a perfect temperature before adding melted butter. The trick to ensuring a proper emulsion lies in making sure these two ingredients are the same temperature. Quickly mixing the two together, adding the acidic component and seasoning, will result in a perfect hollandaise.This sauce provides a great analogy for the culinary work force. Once we end a service, we need to ensure that we cool down. Before you leave work and enter into your personal life, pause for a moment and make sure that your temperature matches the next step in your life. Are you going to be able to “emulsify” with your family, friends and other relationships outside of the kitchen? Once we have our lives nicely emulsified, just like the hollandaise, we need to find that perfect holding place. The area that makes us feel relaxed and is the perfect environment to hold that emulsion. Every kitchen has one and if you work with hollandaise, you know exactly where it is in the kitchen. We need to take time in our lives to find that perfect place to maintain our personal “emulsifications.” Even if it is for five minutes a day, find that place to reflect on work, your actions, how you treated others, what you can do better both inside the kitchen and out. Reflect on the changes you are willing to make to increase your balance in life to make you happy, not only others. It takes practice. Making a hollandaise sauce that can hold up for the length of entire service takes practice. Repetition in the process gives the cook an opportunity to discover the wonderful nuances of the ingredients. Achieving perfection with this sauce is impossible as it must be discarded after a period, but the quest for perfection is the best part of working with food. Taking a few simple ingredients and transforming them into a classical sauce is an awesome feat. As you stand there over a double boiler whisking the yolks, think to yourself, “How can I improve the simple ingredients that make up my life to create a perfect balance?”

The chef is in charge of the kitchenâ€“the heart of the restaurant. By taking the time to evaluate the menu, update serving standards, and educate staff, it's possible to set all kinds of positive changes in motion.
Set a new standard Ultimately, controlling portion sizes is the chefâ€™s responsibility. By implementing this easy, five-step plan, you can help everyone in the kitchen prepare orders consistently and appropriately. Step 1
Develop specifications for each ingredient you use. (What size of potato, filet, or bread loaf should be ordered?)
Write up standardised recipes that include specific weights and measures of each ingredient. Make sure the tools your staff needs to reproduce those weights and measures are readily available in the kitchen.
Create a plating guide with photos or diagrams to model appropriate servings for your culinary crew.
Prepare each order by following the recipe and plating guide. Use standardised measuring tools to serve up the food.
Make a habit of monitoring actual portions served, comparing them against the standard to train staff, decrease waste, and manage food costs.
How much is too much? Over the past few decades, serving sizes have risen dramatically. As portions increase, it becomes more difficult for a person to accurately guess how many calories a serving contains, so they end up eating more.2 A guest who ordered the same menu item in 1995 and 2015 could easily have doubled the number of calories they consumed, as shown in the comparison below.3

Make a plan Itâ€™s not necessary to take a radical approach to changing everything at once. Instead, try a long-term plan to gradually reach portion size goals without upsetting guests or disrupting their value perception.
Traditional Portion Incremental adjustments can be made to any recipe and any portion size.
Year 2: Adjust Recipe Only Maintain size while replacing half of the meat in the sauce with diced vegetables to reduce the calories by about 10%.
2.5 Cups Pasta 1.5 Cups Sauce 2 Tbsp Cheese
2.25 Cups Pasta 1.25 Cups Sauce 1.5 Tbsp Cheese
Year 1: Reduce Portion Reduce the overall volume of the dish by about 10 to 15%. The difference will generally be hard to notice.
Year 3: Reduce Portion Reduce the overall volume again and use a wide-rim dish to make the smaller serving seem more abundant.

Understanding the guidelines Serving appropriate portion sizes begins with knowing what they look like. While guidelines may vary from country to country, some helpful tips are literally right in your hands, as shown on the next page. With this in mind, itâ€™s also helpful to visualize what a single meal should look 50 WORLDCHEFS MAGAZINE
like. Various health authorities provide helpful guidance, such as MyPlate in the US and the EatWell Plate from the Food Service Agency (FSA) in the UK. In general, the focus is on increasing vegetablesâ€”half of the plate should be made up of fruits and vegetables. Then, another quarter comes from (preferably whole) grains, and the last quarter from lean protein.4,5
While these models are easy to visualize, controlling portions is more challenging when food groups are mixed together. For dishes like noodle bowls, stews and pasta, standardised measuring tools can help the kitchen keep portions consistent.

On the Plate 10 Tips for Plating: One of the challenges of right-sizing portions is meeting the expectations of guests and not compromising on their perceived value equation. Try these clever plating techniques from chefs and researchers to help support a mission of moderation.
1 Experiment with plate size to create a perception of visual abundance.7
7 Arrange leafy vegetables to take up space on the plate.
2 Make use of wide rims to frame the dish.7
8 Instead of one large piece of protein, offer two or more smaller pieces. Multiple items tend to increase the perceived amount of food more than overall size.9
3 Slice protein and fan pieces across plate. 4 Choose elongated, thinner cuts which may make items appear larger.8 5 Use sauces to create visual value around the edges of the plate, or pour sauce into a small ramekin to emphasize its presence and value. 6 Create visual interest with dark or bright sauces on white plates.
