International Chefs Day

Remember when we only had special days celebrating mothers and fathers, or cupid with his arrows?  Now we also have International Chefs Day on 20 October!

From around the globe “culinarians” (as “food lovers” like to be referred to) have set aside a commemorative day celebrating the art of cooking.  This special occasion salutes the profession and creates awareness about chefs who have set remarkable industry standards in the art of cooking. 

The South African Chefs Association has planned a charity event at Cressent House, Johannesburg, but is encouraging everyone in the industry to celebrate this special day in his or her own way.  The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy is making a contribution by baking muffins and distributing it in and around Pretoria.  This initiative is driven by the Second Year Professional Cookery learners and Chef Lecturers.
