The Panel of Chefs of Ireland & The Irish Foodservice Suppliers Alliance (IFSA) Welcome the The Chef Ireland Culinary Competitions
The Chef Ireland Competitions was an immense success with over 250 student and culinary chefs taking part, and many spectators cheering on their favourites.
Professional Cookery Competitions play a vital role in culinary arts as they continually raise the standards of culinary excellence. There is no better way for a culinarian to hone their craft than by putting their skills and knowledge to the test in a competitive format. With this in mind, the Panel of Chefs of Ireland Ltd. will host The Chef Ireland Culinary Competition 2020, in the Citywest Conference and Event Centre, Dublin, at the Food & Bev Live 2020 exhibition, on the 4th and 5th of February 2020.
This year our competitions are going GREEN and our theme is sustainability with an emphasis on awareness of ingredients and origin of the foods that chefs will be cooking with. We will for the first time be featuring all electric cooking equipment for our competitors this will include induction cooking plates in place of open gas fire cookers. Our mission is to promote quality and excellence in all activities related to the culinary arts, in particular the development of the craft in Ireland. The subject of sustainability is currently in sharp focus and we want to encourage our competitors to embrace this change by challenging and encouraging them to use clean energy technology when creating their culinary creations. This also extends to their ingredients, judges will be looking for locally grown and sourced seasonal ingredients to be featured in their menus and dishes. - Paddy Brady, President, Panel of Chefs of Ireland.
