HANS BUESCHKENS TROPHY - GLOBAL YOUNG CHEFS CHALLENGE COMPETITORS The Global Young Chefs Challenge was created in 2002 by Worldchefs to promote and groom young chefs in their culinary careers. The competition is open to chefs aged 25 and younger.

Chef Hans J. Bueschkens, former President of Worldchefs from 1980 to 1988, was a great chef and a man with great passion and commitment. Chef Bueschkens declared his primary goals would be to create programs to interest “youth” by bringing “junior chefs” into Worldchefs activities.

He played a key role in the World Student Chefs Olympics and World Young Chefs Challenge.

Well deserved honours and accolades have followed Bueschkens the greater part of his life, this is why Worldchefs has decided to organize global young chefs challenge in his honor to win the Hans Bueschkens trophy which is now a worldwide well known trophy.
