Good morning Chefs !!!
Today is International Chefs Day, it time to reflect back on our last 12 months, you're ups and your downs, it is also a time to reflect that we are in a dynamic industry where no two days are the same and that is why you choose it !
Chefs have no borders, and that is why our industry is so unique, our industry is not like to corporate world and if a colleagues is in need no matter what company he works for, we are there to help and this is what camaraderie is all about.
It is also time to look at our changing world with flooding in Thailand, storms in USA and this should make us more aware of 'Sustainable Cuisine' and the big challenge on ' How to feed the planet in the future ' The world is growing rapidly, and the farm lands are becoming smaller and less desirable to work and maintain.
International Chefs Day gives us as chefs the opportunity all over the world to celebrate the ingenuity of our great profession, it is indeed a day and our industry to celebrate and to appreciate how lucky we are and also to appreciate the good things in life FOOD !
Happy cooking to everyone.
