MAY, 2017: The triumphant 18th edition of the Hospitality Salon Culinaire took place at HORECA Lebanon last month. This Worlchefs and L’Académie Nationale de Cuisine endorsed event was a jewel in a rich program of events.
In a follow-up to our initial coverage of this exciting event which can be found here, we are proud to announce below a complete list of winners.
Congratulations to all who took part!
Through more than 30 live cooking and display competitions, the profile of more than 300 chefs in Lebanon was elevated. Special competitions were also held for the Lebanese army chefs to highlight their skills. Gold medal winners at the Hospitality Salon Culinaire were awarded cash prizes and international training opportunities.
Elsewhere, the Junior Chef Competition provided a platform for young talents and professionals to showcase their skills.
HORECA returns to Beirut, Lebanon on 20-23 March 2018 for its 25th edition.
