  • Worldchefs has announced the collaborative launch of DigiChef Academy, a 100% online learning platform that is recognized by Worldchefs and designed by At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy, Singapore’s premier culinary school for culinary, pastry and baking skills and food & beverage management education.
  • The platform provides globally recognized 6-month online career diplomas offering skills and knowledge in East and West, Old World and New World cuisines. 
  • With 9 culinary modules, 9 Pastry & Bakery modules, and 7 F&B Services modules taught by leading industry professionals, the Diplomas are awarded by At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy and endorsed by Worldchefs, delivering new opportunities to upskill kitchen and F&B training.


Paris, 8 of September 2021 – Worldchefs has announced the collaborative launch of DigiChef Academy, a 100% online learning platform that is recognized by Worldchefs and designed by At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy, Singapore’s premier culinary school for culinary, pastry and baking skills and food & beverage management education. 


For the past 20 years, the At-Sunrice has been cultivating global chefs and F&B professionals in an experiential environment of culinary authenticity and best-fit apprenticeship. Pioneering applied learning strategies with study and work apprenticeships and international qualifications, At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy is a leader in shaping culinary training. The DigiChef Academy platform represents a new chapter in their mission to build craft-based education.


The experiential online learning platform provides innovative teaching and learning methodology, with an overall learning journey designed in three integrated phases:

  •  Phase 1 – The first phase is 100% online and optimized for access across devices to empower learning 24/7. Students are given full access to the course materials in an interactive formation, allowing for self-paced study that breaks the monotony of reading from a textbook.

  •  Phase 2 – The second phase provides on-site employment experience shadowing a DigiChef Academy-trained supervising Chef to support leadership training. Students learn by watching their supervisor formally or in informal demos within an everyday kitchen or restaurant environment.
  •  Phase 3 – The third phase focuses on practice and peer learning. Through shared video within the platform, students track their own skills development in a fun and engaging way. Posting their videos promotes communication and encourages students to push each other to constantly improve. 

To promote interactivity between learning peers and instructors, an innovative digital Dashboard allows instructors, trainers, and employers to fully track learners’ progress.         

“The partnership of Worldchefs and At-Sunrice to create DigiChef Academy platform has been in the works for three years. The result is the three six months online Career Diplomas twinned with Employability which we are launching today,” says Dr. Kwan Lui, founder of At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy.


“With Worldchefs, we are now able to open up this new horizon with no border restrictions and 24/7. We welcome any WC members to support in numerous possibilities as employers, as DigiChef Academy Instructors, DigiChef Academy assessors, or to provide scholarships to DigiChef Academy student chefs.”

The launch of DigiChef Academy marks another step into the digital frontier for Worldchefs and their efforts to expand educational standards and training opportunities for their international membership and culinary community. 


The global non-profit has focused on providing culinary professionals with opportunities to upskill and access quality training resources, from their free online Worldchefs Academy Pre-Commis Chef training course, Global Hospitality Certification program, online catalog of Worldchefs Approved Schools, Sustainability Education curriculum, industry webinars, podcast, regional initiatives, and more.


The partnership with At-Sunrice also includes a series of educational webinars, livestream programs, and skills training recipe demos.


“Worldchefs continues to be inspired by the teaching innovations of our friends at At-Sunrice GlobalChefs Academy,” says Ragnar Fridrikkson, Worldchefs Managing Director. “We look forward to our continued

collaboration and to the bright futures for future culinary students and professionals around the world.”

Mark Your Calendars for International Chefs Day 2021!

Mark Your Calendars: International Chefs Day is October 20th!

Each year on October 20th, we celebrate International Chefs Day.  Since its creation, by the Late Chef Dr. Bill Gallagher in 2004, Worldchefs has committed to using International Chefs Day to celebrate our noble profession, always remembering that it is our duty to pass on our knowledge and culinary skills to the next generation of chefs with a sense of pride and commitment to the future.

Over the past years, Worldchefs has partnered with Nestlé Professional to teach children around the globe about the importance of healthy eating by hosting fun-filled workshops worldwide.

In 2020, many Chefs around the globe did not have the opportunity to have events due to COVID-19 and created short videos to share with children on social media, which became a big hit. The videos allowed us to reach approx.112,000 children. Unfortunately, uncertainty is still around many of us, but we will continue to reach as many children as possible either in-person at a workshop or through online learning and social media. To help, Nestlé Professional has made fantastic adaptions to the toolkit to make online learning easy and accessible.

As Chefs, we are all paying closer attention towards keeping ourselves and others healthy. Having a strong immune system and eating “stress-busting” foods will help us through these challenging times.

We can also help our children, the Worldchefs way by working together in Preparing Children for a Healthy Life. International Chefs Day will once again promote the theme: Healthy Food for the Future.

In 2021, International Chefs Day will also emphasize sustainability and the environment to ensure a healthy planet for future generations. It is vital for us to teach children about the impact that production and consumption of food has on the environment.

We will use this opportunity to teach children about healthy eating by letting them be creative with food. With the Chef’s input, education and help, children will be able to create recipes out of healthy foods and support Healthy Food for the Future.

HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?

All Chefs from around the globe are invited to host their very own Healthy Food for the Future workshop in their region. It can be a workshop for your own children, or a workshop for 300 children, every child can benefit from this experience, and it is important to share this opportunity and message for them to learn and enjoy eating something new!

A toolkit with everything you need to run an event, from instructions to materials to recipes to social media tips, has been prepared for you. Thanks to the Chefs who contributed to the 2021 campaign by submitting recipes! The complete toolkit can be downloaded below. International Chefs Day Committee members and Nestlé Professional regional managers in selected areas are standing by to help you find a venue, connect with schools and more. Just ask, we are always here for you.
Get started by downloading the toolkit

To host a  Healthy Food for the Future workshop on or around October 20, 2021, please contact Vanessa Marquis, Chairman, International Chefs Day Committee at internationalchefsday@worldchefs.org.

Download your toolkit today and join Chefs from around the world by sharing and making a big impact with the children in your community.
