President Message



Dear fellow Chefs, ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the October issue of our Gulf Gourmet.
First, the greatest news. Our Young Chefs Team has lifted the African Culinary Cup in Mauritius. We had 4 teams competing in the final on September 30 (Mauritius, Namibia, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates). This is the first time the team had brought the Cup home. We will have all the details in next month’s issue. Great competition, and a very high standard. Congratulations to all 4 teams for the great job done.
Our next big one is our Pastry Team in Milan; we wish them all the best. Our Team will be supported by our Honorary Vice President Andreas Kurfurst and our Vice President Dubai – Thomas Haller.
Chef Ramon Salto, K.A.C. Prasad and myself will travel to Milan as well to visit HOST Milan; we will come back with a full report in the November issue.
If you have not yet registered for the WorldChefs Congress July 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, make sure you register as soon as possible, we are looking forward to a great Congress. Andy Cuthbert and the Organizing Committee are working very hard to put up an amazing Show for us together. Do not miss it.
In the meantime, our Culinary Team for Singapore and Luxembourg got together and started their training.
The registration for the La Cuisine Du Sial in December is open. I know that some of you are already in full training. Look forward to seeing you all in Abu Dhabi.
