My vision as President :TechnicalChef is not about numbers of members, it is about quality. Particularly a professionals “SAKE”; in other words, their combined proven, Skills – Attitude – Knowledge and Experience that demonstrates they are a PROFESSIONAL CHEF. Let those who wish to be just called a chef, continue, as it is their right and in any case not within our jurisdiction. However those who are professional chefs, who practice in the commercial cookery industry and bound by codes of practice and standards be acknowledged as a TechnicalChef.

My vision as Education Liaison Manager:Coming soon.

My vision as Branding Manager:Unfortunately in the todays world, anyone with an inclination, and the ability to pick up a knife, tends to call themselves a Chef, regardless of skills. It is my belief that those who have the dedication, drive, and determination to perfect their craft, and devote the many years required for this end. Should be recognized, they should be rewarded for their passion, their sacrifices, their journeys. It is a crime to even contemplate the thought one is the same as the other, which to the layman they appear to be. A clear distinction is required, to sort out the gold from the dirt.
