November will be a busy month for the Canadian Culinary Federation Culinary Teams!

CCFCC Culinary Team Canada under the management of John Carlo Felicella, has been invited to compete at the prestigious IGEHO Salon Culinaire Mondial 2013 to be held in Basel, Switzerland from November 23 -27, 2013.

The Federation has also been invited by Sheik Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Royal Palace and government of Dubai and the Emirates Culinary Guild to send a team of chefs to compete in the WACS sanctioned Dubai World Hospitality Championships, from November 17-19, 2013.

The dilemma: Culinary Team Canada is already committed to the IGEHO competition so were unable to take up the challenge.

What team of chefs could be found that were capable of producing a world class buffet table and hot main courses and desserts for 54 of the Sheik’s invited guests…..with the minimum of time to plan and practice?

Who better than the Bocuse d’Or Laureate chefs!  

Seven former Bocuse d’Or competitors – joined by Pastry Chef Arthur Chen – all readily agreed to join the team.

With one intense planning meeting held in August and a single practice scheduled for early  October, these chefs, who have already given so much of their time to compete for Canada as individuals, are now ready and excited to take on the challenge of cooking together as one team.

This extraordinary group of professionals who will represent Canada and the Federation in Dubai
