The Craft Guild of Chefs' Culinary Academy is calling for chefs who think they can do better than our failed football team to put themselves forward for this year’s Culinary World Cup
Taking place in Luxembourg from 20-24 November, the Culinary World Cup will see teams from 28 countries compete in a series of hot and cold food challenges.
Fergus Martin, the British team manager is looking for eight seasoned competitors plus two junior chefs to take with him to attempt to better 2006’s champions Norway.
He said: “From personal experience, the World Cup really is an opportunity of a lifetime and the atmosphere is like nothing else. The four days themselves can be tough as you are literally working round the clock but it is an exhilarating experience, especially if you win.
“We are currently at the stage where we are finding out who wants to go. Once we’ve got the team together, I will be working with the Craft Guild’s Michael Godfrey to prepare the team members, appraising and advising them each step of the way. We’ll ask each competitor to tell us what they want to achieve and then enter as many classes as we can.”
All those interested in joining Martin at the World Cup should call 020 8948 3870.
