Indian Culinary Forum announces 18th Annual Chef Awards

Over 100 chefs to compete in eight different categories to take home the coveted best chef awards

The Indian Culinary Forum is organising the 18th Annual Chef Awards 2021 on the occasion of International Chefs’ Day at The Park Hotel, Connaught Place, New Delhi on Wednesday, October 20, 2021. On this occasion, the Indian Culinary Forum will be honouring the achievements of outstanding culinary artisans by conferring them with awards. ICF has officially associated with BW HOTELIER as its media partner.

Over 100 chefs from starred hotels and high-end stand-alone restaurants will participate in the awards. The chefs would be competing amongst themselves in eight different categories at this culinary platform in their bid to take home the coveted best chef awards. The Jury comprises renowned chefs under the chairmanship of a WACS-certified chef. NotedChef Umesh Mattoowill presides as the Chairperson of the jury in this year’s competitions, while Chef Sireesh Saxena will be the organising secretary.

The chef summit that will complete nine years this time is also another highlight of the glittering event. Since the last nine years, ICF has widened its scope of activity by conducting a Knowledge Summit with the award ceremony, wherein the veteran chefs and stalwarts linked with the food and beverage industry share their knowledge and experiences with new and upcoming chefs. The Knowledge Summit also provides a platform for discussing and deliberating the issues concerning the industry, planning how to put Indian cuisine on the global culinary map and chalking out the way forward for the food and beverage industry.

“We have been organising the Annual Chef Awards since the last 18 years as part of the celebrations of the International Chefs Day. The prime objective of the Chef Awards is to provide the chefs with a platform where they can exhibit their culinary, preparation, and presentation skills and get rewarded for the same, in our bid to encourage them to match the International standards. The event would also serve as a medium to bring the best out of the upcoming chefs while also maximizing the potential of the existing ones for their growth in the sector,” said Chef Davinder Kumar, President, Indian Culinary Forum.
