We asked Rosalyn a fre questions, Joining the YCDT Committee, what would be your 3 objectives to achieve?

1. Arrange for more young Canadian chefs to go abroad for training, international competitions or employment (in regulated co-operational programs) and let them experience the positive influences for themselves.

2.Develop a mentoring program for young female chefs to gain confidence and to empower themselves to aim for the same positions as their male counterparts.

3.Increase awareness toward the benefits of culinary diplomacy, not only to young chefs but to people who are not in the hospitality industry.

We cannot wait to get started with working with Rosalyn.
