Dear friends and colleagues around the world, What a year this has been! Since our Congress in Chile we have moved very fast with different programs and work for WACS. The First Edition of the World Chefs Magazine had a blast with over 10,000 copies printed and almost the same amount downloaded off the WACS website, and as the news continues to flash forth, it continues to gain popularity internationally. I would especially like to congratulate our Office Manager, Ragnar Fridriksson and his team for their amazing work on this endeavor. We look forward to a very successful Second Edition.

Through this Magazine, we want to give our members an opportunity to showcase their thoughts, work, passion and businesses, so we are reaching out to all Chefs and Culinaryrelated Institutions or Businesses to step forward and reserve a space for their articles and advertisements for the next magazine as soon as possible. I encourage you all to share photos, ideas, stories with the office to make our Chefs World spicier. It will open eyes and grant new opportunities to many.
