Congratulatory well wishes from the big family of WorldChefs

On Saturday 31st of January a new baby was born - the Egypt Young Chefs Club - the youth arm of the Egyptian Chefs Association. Its official inauguration was celebrated at the Swiss Club in Cairo.

On a brilliant sunny day Egypt’s young chefs celebrated the launch of the Egypt Young Chefs Club. This is the realization of a dream of the nine member committee involved in its conception and development. Andy Cuthbert, Chairman of the Young Chefs Global Development Team for Worldchefs, had flown in from Dubai to attend the inspirational day and add his celebrity presence to the occasion. The day’s festivities were a marvellous celebration of Egypt’s young talent. 

The Egypt Young Chefs Club (EYCC) is the youth arm of the Egyptian Chefs Association. The new organization nurtures youthful talent in the food and beverage field and is reputed for its distinctive mission, excellent culinary standards and dedication to promoting continuous improvement in the profession.  The launch event brought many young Egyptian chefs together and provided a platform for the culinary professionals to interact, have fun and interact with the rising stars of their profession.

Committee members and their colleagues of the Egypt Young Chefs Club volunteered in preparing a delicious selection of canapés to welcome the guests. After the official inauguration speeches the guests enjoyed watching a slicing and dicing competition and then joined the chefs to watch Nubian musicians give a traditional song and dance display in the gardens. After all this excitement it was time for yet more food. The BBQ stations opened and offered a varied selection of Egyptian fair accompanied with interesting condiments. The festivities were concluded by the official cutting of the celebration cake prepared by the Cairo Marriott Hotel.
 The launch party was a celebration of the committee's aspiration to build a community where young professionals will enjoy an open society in which information exchange and networking are the hallmarks of its mission.
 The Egyptian Chefs Association wishes to say a big and sincere ‘Thank you’ to the main event sponsor Unilever Food Solutions. It also wishes to thank everyone who contributed to the successful launch of the Egypt Young Chefs Club.

To all the Young Chefs in Egypt we say Congratulations! The future is yours!
