“We may live without poetry, music and art. We may live without conscience, and live without heart. We may live without friends. We may live without books. But civilized men cannot live without cooks.”  – Owen Meredith, 1860

Just a little reminder for you to share with family and friends around the holiday table this year. In all seriousness, however, we would not be without you, our chefs. Thank you for all that you do as part of our Worldchefs family.

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy festive season,
The Worldchefs team

Dilmah Tea Moulds Culinary Ambassadors for Bocuse d’Or

After months of hard work, world class training and nail biting anticipation, the team that will represent Sri Lanka at the world’s most prestigious culinary competition has been selected. The Fortress Resort and Spa, Galle were titled Gold winners of Bocuse d’Or Sri Lanka. These culinary ambassadors will now take forth the best of our island’s ingredients including Ceylon’s finest tea to create authentic culinary masterpieces at the Bocuse d’Or Asia Finals. 

Bocuse d’Or Sri Lanka together with Dilmah Tea have been moulding culinary ambassadors for Sri Lanka since its inception in 2010. Established to uplift Sri Lanka’s culinary standards and create culinary ambassadors that could earn international accolades for their skill and passion, this year 22 teams battled it for the coveted opportunity to represent Sri Lanka.  

Speaking at the event on the importance of moulding culinary ambassadors, Malik Fernando, son of Dilmah Tea Founder, said:
