Montreal — Bocuse d’or Canada has established Chefs Canada, an organization devoted to inspiring culinary excellence, promoting Canadian cuisine, terroir, producers, ingredients and products in Canada and abroad.
Grown from a network of 500 chefs and industry professionals built under the Bocuse d’Or Canada brand, the new entity will further define and promote Canadian gastronomy through international competitions and partnerships at home and on the world stage.
“Canada is already home to unique and high-quality ingredients and products, incredible chefs as well as respected restaurateurs,” said Thomas Delannoy, president of Bocuse d’Or Team Canada and of the newly formed entity. “Chefs Canada aims to harness these strengths to share knowledge among our community of chefs, raise funds to support our culinary athletes and ultimately foster a thriving and enduring food industry.”
The new brand will feature teams, the Chefs Academy and the Chefs Pantry. The organization will continue to participate in events and will form a World Pastry Cup team as well as support contenders in the World Pâté Croûte Championship.
It will promote sharing of expertise through training, seminars and cooking lessons, Canadian cooks, chefs and industry professionals will have a reliable resource to turn to for guidance, mentorship and information.
To launch this new service, the team has partnered with Sysco, on the Chefs Academy podcast, which will explore topics affecting the Canadian restaurant industry.
Also launching in March, Chefs Canada and Sysco Grand Montreal are coming together to help keep Montreal kitchens open by offering the public exclusive dishes made in collaboration between its chefs and local eateries.
Chefs Canada welcomes opportunities to partner with other groups to create resources that will benefit our industry.
Chefs Canada will launch the Chefs Panty, a gourmet line of products to the public. Proceeds generated will directly support the development the national teams CHEFS CANADA represents.
