Help get a Young Chef to World Chefs Congress 2018

Personal message Through family financial circumstances as well as situations beyond my control as the Young Chefs Ambassador for Africa and Middle East I am not able to personally or through affiliation finance myself to the upcoming Bill Gallagher Young Chefs Forum at the Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2018. This event brings together more than 100 member countries, industry leaders, culinary enthusiasts and gastronomy fans to learn and enjoy about culinary trends and innovations. The forum is an exciting program design for young chefs. It encompass both a learning experience and the opportunity to create friendship with fellow colleagues from around the world at varying and vast levels. The Forum is a great place to start or contribute to an already successful career. It contributes to young chefs’ success and it will open up great culinary world for ambitious youngsters who seek to thrive in the culinary community. As well as provide a global mentorship and skills sharing programme, it is my duty to not only nurture this, but to stimulate and contribute to the growth of the chef industry and more importantly to inspire young chefs to develop to their full potential. This forum is paramount to the global development of young chefs as well as it has the opportunity to bring global trends, ideas and friendships back to South Africa from the congress through the connection of the South African Young Chefs Club (past chairman) my attendance is vital and important. However, this year I am unable to finance myself. Help me get there by selecting the 'donate' button next to the barometer. #ThisIsWorldchefs
