A Message from the Young Chefs Chairman Andy Cuthbert

Young chefs of the World, come to Norway from July 2nd to 5th 2014 and experience a once in a life time event, at the Bill Gallagher young chefs Forum. The Bill Gallagher forum is in its 12th year and from its first gathering at the Kyoto Congress  it has now grown over the years to form an integral part of the WACS Congress and is dedicated to Young chefs attending the congress. In Norway the WACS young chefs development team and WACS young chefs ambassadors will welcome young chefs from all corners of the globe to interact and network and form friendships for life during the Forum. An important part of the forum is the opportunity to meet peers from all over the world and form strong bonds with fellow chefs and during the 4 day interactive programme there is no better place than the forum to do this.
This year the programme is packed with hands on cooking  with Nordic chefs serving lunch for 8000 guests, trips on the beautiful fiords of Norway to see first-hand Sterling Halibut farms and trips to the Figgio chinaware factory to over a glimpse of a side of the industry that very few get a chance to see.

During the forum, young chefs will have dedicated speakers present to them, they will hear from Young chefs Presidents from the around the world speak to them about how to set up and run a successful young chefs club. A fun hands on session with America Chef Rick Tramonto awaits four lucky young chefs who will come on stage in front of the main congress body. A wine and food tasting training will be another key learning for the young chefs with matching a wine and aquavit with salmon and Norwegian dishes, to ensure the young chefs get a broad learning from the forum. This is just a taste of what a delegate of the Bill Gallagher Young chefs forum can expect out of their four days which we promise will be a life time experience that stays with you for ever.

Of course there must be fun and all delegates will be attending all the social activities after the congress and I am sure we will find some special places to visit in the late hours of the night as Young chefs must do!!

Young chefs, I look forward with our team to welcoming you to Stavanger in July 2014 for a great time that only chefs can have.
