The illustrious event, set to take place 24-27th September in Thessaloniki, Greece, will see over 1000 chefs from 80 countries come together to share their cultures and experiences. With over 12 seminars available, those attending will also have the opportunity to learn from 34 industry experts, including the father of molecular cuisine, Hervé This.
Each masterclass will take place on state-of-the-art equipment provided by Electrolux Professional as the event’s exclusive Equipment Supplier. Ten “active” stage kitchens will feature products from the Electrolux Cook&Chill system, and will also host the hotly-contested Global Chefs Competition. Meanwhile, the event’s show-cooking arena will be equipped with the thermaline M2M (made to measure) cooking range and a Molteni stove.
Young chefs are invited to get involved more than ever. The Bill Gallagher Young Chefs forum will see industry newcomers debate rising trends and the future of global cuisine, whilst Nestlè Professional’s Chill Zone will be a place for young chefs to network and experience Electrolux Libero Point mobile kitchen units to create new and exciting dishes.
Nicoletta Drigo, Marketing Activation Manager at Electrolux Professional, commented: “As a global company, everything we do is rooted in giving chefs the world over the tools they need to deliver inspiring food which brings people together. In this light, we are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Worldchefs by supporting an event that unites the best and most promising chefs from across the globe.”
