Sixth Edition Of International Young Chef Olympiad kick Starts In New Delhi

NEW DELHI – The sixth edition of International Young Chef Olympiad kick started in the Indian capital New Delhi on Tuesday.

Participants from 55 countries across the world will be competing in various Indian cities for the next five days and will be judged by a panel of 24 chefs on 2 February.

This edition of the culinary competition will focus on sustainability and organisers have introduced a special category called the sustainability champion, founder Suborno Bose told EFE.

“The winner of the competition gets $10,000 and the sustainability champion gets a one year paid internship in the USA along with the cash award of $500,” he added.

Competitors will be judged on the skills, flavours and techniques they use in bringing the recipe together.

“It is not like cooking at home, it is a professional food production for the hospitality industry and that is what we are looking at,” David Foskett, YCO chairman, said at a press conference before the opening ceremony.

Brain Tuner, one of the panel judges, also speaking at the press conference described cooking as an essential life skill.

He added that the competition will encourage the youngsters to learn this valuable talent.

Enthusiastic participants accompanied by their mentors wore their countries’ traditional dresses as they took part in a flag march at the opening ceremony.

Claudia Cebria Ross, 25, who represents Spain in the competition said she has been preparing for the event since September.

“I hope to do my best but if it doesn’t work out, it will still be an incredible opportunity to learn,” she said.

She added that she was the first woman to represent her school in the competition.

Awards for best hygienic practices, best dessert, best hospitality and others will be conferred to the participants.

The competition organized by the International Hotel Management Institute and the International Hospitality Council provides a platform for aspiring young chefs to showcase their talents.

It was founded in 2015 in a bid to become “the best platform to bring the world closer, via food as food unites people,” according to its website.
