The Worldchefs Congress & Expo is a bi-annual must-attend global chefs event, which brings together more than 105 member countries to learn about the latest in worldwide culinary innovations, to raise global culinary standards through idea-sharing, and of course to experience unmatched camaraderie and networking. Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2018 – Asia on a Plate – is taking place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia between July 11 – 14, 2018.


The World Association of Chefs' Societies, or Worldchefs, is a global network of chefs associations first founded in October 1928 at the Sorbonne in Paris. At that first congress there were 65 delegates from 17 countries, representing 36 national and international associations, and the venerable August Escoffier was named the first Honorary President of Worldchefs.

Worldchefs is a non-political professional organization, dedicated to maintaining and improving the culinary standards of global cuisines.

We accomplish these goals through education, training and professional development of our international membership. As an authority and opinion leader on food, Worldchefs represents a global voice on all issues related to the culinary profession.
