International Chefs’ Day is celebrated on the 20th of October each year. The day focuses on teaching children across the globe about healthy eating and also a day for chefs to pass on to the next generation of chefs their experience and skills.
In the United States, there are nearly 942,000 chefs, head cooks, and food and serving supervisors. Chefs also lead other cooks in the kitchen, along with managing the regular food service operations of restaurants. To create and prepare recipes, chefs use their imagination and expertise. In addition, chefs must deal with a variety of food-related problems.
International Chefs’ Day was founded in 2004 by Dr. Bill Gallagher, a renowned chef and former president of the World Association of Chefs (World Chefs).
World Chefs has used International Chefs Day for over sixteen years to celebrate the profession and teach people about healthy food. World Chefs have collaborated with Nestlé Professional over the last few years to educate kids about the value of eating healthy by holding enjoyable workshops.
