Cooks and Chefs Federation of Turkey

Gathering of five associations which are still acting in the field of culinary and food culture, Cooks and Chefs Federation of Turkey has been established in 29 January 2007 and Mr. Yasar Yalcin Manav who is the Chairman of the Kitchen Professionals Association has also been appointed as the Chairman of the Federation. Mr. Manav made a declaration about the establishment of the Federation: "The actions related with food culture and culinary affairs in Turkey have been developing recently. Also, the numbers of the associations who act in this field are increasing day by day. I suggest that everybody who deals with culinary and food culture should cooperate with each other to enable these actions to be continued in modern way. We, as those five associations who realized this requirement, decided to come together and established the Cooks and Chefs Federation of Turkey (COCFED). So, we have officially completed the establishment formalities which started on 16.10.2006. Since 2003, we have been organizing on International Gastronomy Festival (International ?stanbul Gastronomy Festival) to establish a platform for exchanging ideas and experiences as we believe the fact that 'individuals become inspiration'. We will continue to become the leader of the purpose of sharing a mutual learning platform for the next years.
