Paris, 23 of February 2023 – Electrolux Professional has renewed as Worldchefs Diamond Partner. Celebrating 120 years of tradition, experience, and innovation, Electrolux Professional has been at forefront in offering sustainable, ergonomic, and customer-friendly solutions. The Worldchefs partnership renewal marks the continuation of a longstanding collaboration centered around the Art & Science program.
Launched in 2014, the Art & Science Come Together partnership between Electrolux Professional and Worldchefs brings chefs together to explore innovation in culinary technology through a series of hands-on workshops. Combining the creativity of professional chefs with the specialized knowledge and technology of the leading manufacturer’s commercial cooking solutions, the program is designed to empower chefs to operate more efficiently, profitably and sustainably to help kitchens across the globe to develop more streamlined cooking processes.
Restructured to fit a digital format, Art & Science Goes Digital brings the beauty of culinary innovation online, made accessible to Worldchefs’ community around the globe. Through a series of themed webinars, the program aims to empower chefs to operate more efficiently, profitably and sustainably. The webinars will be held quarterly, with the first installment on 13 April.
The program will provide participants with skills and advice from experienced professional chefs willing to share their international experience and passion for the continual discovery of contemporary developments in the culinary arts. “This partnership has launched a number of dedicated exciting activities which will unite the beauty of the culinary arts with the breakthroughs in culinary technology,” says Worldchefs President, Thomas Gugler. “What makes the Art & Science partnership so special is the ability to connect all this technical knowledge with the artistic side of the culinary industry.”
Art & Science Goes Digital will be hosted by seasoned chef and culinary trainer Paolo Pettenuzzo. Hailing from the Veneto region of Italy, by the age of 16 Pettenuzzo was competing on the Italian culinary team at the national level. By age 20, his impressive skills had earned him two silver medals in the prestigious Global Chefs Challenge. Pettenuzzo joined Electrolux Professional in 2013, where he spearheads business development in the luxury sector, including Michelin-starred projects. In 2019 he was appointed as the official Chefs Activation Manager to lead on chef training strategy organization-wide. “I live Electrolux Professional with an anticipatory perspective, working with the future to change the present,” says Pettenuzzo.
“Worldchefs is thrilled to continue our work with Electrolux Professional. Their chef-centered approach to innovation, continuous push for excellence and unwavering sustainability commitments are just a few reasons why they have been a natural collaborator and key supporter of Worldchefs,” says Ragnar Fridrikkson, Worldchefs Managing Director. “Electrolux Professional’s dedicated chefs around the world add so much value to our community and we look forward to the next chapter of our collaboration with Art & Science Goes Digital.”
