Each year on October 20th we celebrate International Chefs Day.

 Since its creation by esteemed chef Dr. Bill Gallagher in 2004, Worldchefs has committed to using International Chefs Day to celebrate our noble profession, always remembering that it is our duty to pass on our knowledge and culinary skills to the next generation of chefs with a sense of pride and commitment to the future.

As Chefs, we are all paying closer attention towards keeping ourselves and others healthy. Having a strong immune system and eating "stress-busting" foods will help us through these challenging times. 

In 2021, International Chefs Day will also emphasize sustainability and the environment to ensure a healthy planet for future generations. 


This year the ACF Invites you to join us in October celebrating a mutual love for food & our industry


It is the perfect opportunity to share what we love about being a and share healthier menu options to inspire our industry. We invite you to create a 2min video that we will share on our website and social platforms. You can make a quick dish or convey an inspirational message. Send your videos in by COB October 16, and we look forward to showcasing our incredible chefs and the significant contribution they make toward creating a better future for our youth and our industry.
