Paris, France · 13 December 2019 · The Results Are In! Check Out the Final Counts for International Chefs Day 2019


Greetings Chefs and Colleagues!

Children around the world had a chance to spend time with Worldchefs members, like yourself, this year on and around October 20th to celebrate International Chefs Day 2019.  With the theme “How Healthy Food Works,” provided by our sponsor Nestlé Professional, all were able to print materials from the toolkit including recipes, badges, certificates, games, and even placemats to make your event complete and with ease.

Chef Dr. Bill Gallagher, founder of International Chefs Day in 2004, would be so proud of this year’s efforts as you continued his vision of celebrating our noble profession and passing on our knowledge and culinary skills to the next generation with a sense of pride and commitment to the future.  

I am also very proud of the International Chefs Day Committee who volunteered their time this year to get the word out and answer any questions you had about the 2019 campaign. Everyone played a big role in making this a great year.

Thank you to my Team!!! 

Adelina Sisti-DeBlasis, Canada

Joanna Ochniak, Poland

Mathew Shropshall, England

Ann Brown, Scotland

Kim-Håvard Larsen, Norway

Venessa Barnes, Australia

David Keir, South Africa

Ines Maria D’Amico, Ecuador

Tony Chang, Taiwan

And now what you have all been waiting for… Just look at our final counts for 2019!

Children Reached: 72,957       Chef Participation: 1,849

Congratulations! This is a great stride and everyone should be proud of what you have accomplished, and that is, sharing with children healthy eating habits and of course, our profession.  If you missed sharing with children this October, perhaps you can participate in 2020 by joining more chefs around the world for next year’s International Chefs Day campaign.

I leave you with this final thought, by Chef Dr. Bill Gallagher: 

“Progress is incremental so concentrate on what you can do today that you couldn’t do yesterday.”

Dear
Passionate Chefs,

 

World Chefs
Without Borders (WCWB) Chefs Social Responsibility for Vietnam program, WCWB
and Saigon Professional Chefs Guilds and 20 international chefs including WCWB
Committee members traveled at their own expense to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam to work
on this meaningful CSR project from 18-21 October 2019. Chefs shared their “money,
knowledge and time” with 600 Vietnamese children and 280 kind, passionate diners
at the gala dinner.

 

World Chefs
Without Borders is proud to announce that our 3rd Chefs Social Responsibility
(CSR) for Vietnam event was held in Ho Chi Minh City from 18-20 October 2019 in
conjunction with International Chefs Day. This charity event was supported by
Saigon Professional Chefs Guilds. The event included a VIP Gala Fundraising
Dinner for 280 guests, and cooking 600 meals for 600 students.

 

We would
like to extend our sincere appreciation to New World Saigon Hotel for hosting
our entire event, especially Chef Alexander Chong, Executive Chef of New World
Saigon Hotel, who coordinated the entire CSR tour – a Malaysian chef but with a
kind heart and passion towards Vietnamese people, truly representing the spirit
of World Chefs Without Borders. Not forgetting all the lovely sponsors and
guests that purchased gala dinner tickets, as all fund raises make a difference
towards our CSR project.

 

The combined
efforts of WCWB, SPC and sponsors contributed to (refer to pictures)

WCWB has
always believed in sharing money if you can, sharing knowledge if not money, and
spending time doing charity if you do not have either of the two. We strongly
discourage you from criticizing those that perform their CSR. Instead, give
support and encouragement!

 

We, as chefs, may not be able to change lives but we can make a difference.

We are
chefs, we have no borders, and together let’s perform our Chefs Social
Responsibility.

 

We heartfully extend our thanks to the Vietnamese for allowing World Chefs Without Borders to
perform our Chefs Social Responsibility.

 

Willment

How Healthy Food Works: International Chefs Day

How Healthy Food Works

INTERNATIONAL CHEFS DAY – OCTOBER 20

Greetings Chefs and Colleagues!

As we continue to prepare for International Chefs Day on October 20, it is important to take a moment and think about how our profession can have an impact on children everywhere.  Teaching and sharing our skills are the most important things we can do to help children in our communities.  Cooking and establishing healthy eating habits can positively affect their entire lives. So how will you make a difference in a child’s life this International Chefs Day?

Let’s hear from two Chefs who have had an impact in their communities. 

Thomas Gugler, Worldchefs President

“For me as the Worldchefs President, it is always very important to support children and promote healthy eating habits in my region and all around the world.

I personally involve myself in the education and alertness about healthy eating habits to make children aware why it is so important to have healthy and fresh food in their daily diet. Especially in Saudi Arabia where the wrong eating habits (including fast foods) have caused severe health problems for children, teenagers and even adults.

Children in Saudi Arabia have been very keen about International Chefs Day events. They always enjoy trying healthy dishes they cook and prepare together with members from the local chef’s society. It has also been a common practice for chefs to go to local schools in KSA to provide tutorial and practical lessons, resulting in a great and positive outcome for all.

I urge all chefs from around the world to be part of this fantastic initiative from Worldchefs and Nestle Professional. We must all ensure that our children and the children of our children find a healthy food environment and share their knowledge with generations to come.

After all, healthy food is the key for a long, happy and healthy life.”

Emmanuel Lorieux, Global Food Executive Chef, Nestlé Professional

“At Nestlé there are several events at the Alimentarium to educate children on how to choose the best fresh products and how to recognize the different kinds of fresh products. There is a real educational garden around the Alimentarium. They can also pick up the ingredients and cook them with the chefs and eat the meals that they prepared.

Chefs are now highly concerned about healthy eating and about teaching kids how to eat better, so as a chef and as a parent, I encourage all the chef communities to make that a mission to educate kids for better and sustainable eating as often as they have the opportunity.”

More Tips for International Chefs Day from your Chairman Venessa Marquis:

  • Use social media & hashtags below to show the world this fun day.
  • Don’t use a flash for pictures, use natural lighting.
  • Be sure to leave branded items out of your pictures.
  • Only take photos of children with permission badges. Print from toolkit.
  • Use the colorful place mats in the toolkit or food pictures and to brighten up the room.
  • NEW: Return the Tracking Form to Worldchefs at [email protected] immediately after your event (by October 25) so we may share how many children and Chefs joined us to teach How Healthy Food Works.
  • And lastly, HAVE FUN!

It’s not too late to participate. Take a moment to share with your children at home too!

International Chefs Day: Help teach kids How Healthy Food Works!

Not only is the cucumber high in water content, it also…

– contains antioxidants

– lowers blood pressure

– good source of potassium

– supports healthy skin

– boosts bone health

So at your International Chefs Day event, try adding cucumbers and honeydew to your water dispenser for children to drink. This will help them stay hydrated during your fun-filled event.

And you can add this cute character above by printing it from the toolkit on www.internationalchefsday.worldchefs.org and placing it next to your infused water dispenser.


Fun fact: The biggest cucumber, grown in southern China, was 67 inches long and weighed 154 pounds.

International Chefs Day is Almost Here!

INTERNATIONAL CHEFS DAY IS ALMOST HERE!

Can it be true? Yes, International Chefs Day 2019 is soon to come! It is almost time once again to support the children around the world on this special day. 

On October 20th we invite you to make a difference in your communities by making healthy eating fun and exciting for children.  

This year’s campaign theme is, “How Healthy Food Works!” Once again, made possible by our partner Nestlé Professional.  


How can you participate? It’s so easy!  Since last 2018, Nestlé Professional has prepared and tested recipes to make it easier for you. Just go to www.internationalchefsday.worldchefs.org and download the recipes, along with the toolkit provided. This will help you to organize and launch your International Chefs Day 2019 Super Workshop, or to make this even more fun for the children, why not call it a party?

With only a few months left, it is time to start thinking of where you will have your International Chefs Day 2019 Party.  For example:

  • Contact a local culinary school kitchen and get their students involved to help you.
  • Reach out to your local public or private schools.  Get the cafeteria supervisor involved and do this together with students.
  • Reach out to your local chef’s association for other suggestions or venues they can give you access to without having to pay rental fees, or for basic utensils and equipment.
  • Or, simply share your knowledge and cook with your children in your very own kitchen and invite their neighborhood friends.

And please keep be sure to read in your toolkit about the Health & Safety considerations.


Who’s got your back? We do! The International Chefs Day Committee Members and the Nestlé Managers are here to help you.

Every year we have more chefs participating, so let’s get bigger and better!  But, if October 20 is too busy for you, then pick another day that week. And who’s to say you can’t do more than 1 workshop/party that week? Why not? I am!  

It’s very humbling to share with children a new fruit or vegetable they have never tried. To see their expression when they try it for the first time or with a combination of flavors!

In 2004, Dr. Bill Gallagher implemented International Chefs Day to celebrate our profession, to share and pass on our knowledge and culinary skills to our children. It’s our legacy to help children get excited about healthy food and our industry.  

I like to say, we are “Preparing Children for a Healthy Life!” Food is something we need every day, so let’s all join together and teach the children, “How Healthy Food Works.”

For questions and support, please don’t hesitate to email us at [email protected].


Warmest
Culinary Regards,

Vanessa
Marquis, Chairman

Selected school sections that participated in this cooking game were Third Class of this Primary School. Specifically, 50 students from the 28th Primary School of Piraeus came in contact with various culinary techniques and created healthy dishes based on the recipes of the organizing chef.

 

The young chefs shared commemorative gifts such as hand-made cooking uniforms made especially for the children, recipe books created for the children with the recipes of the event, certificates of participation in the cooking game and all this in a colored bag containing fruit, vegetables, and bottled water.

Nestle Professional inspires children to live healthier lives for International Chefs Day

International Chefs Day saw Australian school children get a taste of healthier eating when Nestlé<span lang="EN-AU" style="mso-bidi- Healthy Active Kids program teamed up.

At St Catherine of Siena school in Sydney, students swapped the classroom for the kitchen in the name of healthy eating.

More than 80 children from the school got creative with healthy food and had the chance to prepare dishes, including Berry Banana Boosting Smoothies and Fantastic Broccoli Noodle Cups, alongside professional chefs, Julio Azzarello and his team from the ACF.

“Learning to eat well and preparing healthy food plays an important role in teaching kids from a young age. This is a great opportunity for kids to try new and interesting foods that they may not eat at home. It’s about establishing the foundations for healthy eating,” Mr Azarello said.

Australian Institute of Sport Diver, World and Commonwealth medallist Declan Stacey, spoke to the kids about his journey to top-performing athlete, and the important role nutrition and exercise play in helping him reach and stay on top of his goals.

Nestlé Professional Nutritionist Karen Kingham was on hand to teach the children about healthy eating and said that International Chefs Day is all about inspiring kids to eat well in a way that’s engaging and interactive.

“We had a fantastic day with the children at the St Catherine of Siena school cooking up a range of dishes with the help of some of Australia’s leading chefs and a special physical activity session thanks to diver Declan Stacey. We hope today’s event showed the students that eating well and physical activity can help them lead a happy and healthy life, no matter what they might want to be when they grow up,” Ms Kingham said.

International Chefs Day is a global celebration of culinary arts. This year’s theme “Healthy Foods for Growing Up” encourages kids to think about the profession they would like to have when they grow up, and how healthy eating today can help them get there.
