The 38th biennial Worldchefs Congress arrives in Malaysia


Headliners include Andre Chiang and the ‘Demon chef” Alvin Leung, as well as key speakers from around the world


The 38th biennial Worldchefs Congress celebrates the association’s 90 year anniversary with an extra bang this 2018, with a stellar line-up of iconic speakers, intense culinary action with the Global Chefs Challenges  and a spectacular Expo with exhibitors.  With iconic chefs such as Andre Chiang   (chef founder of Restaurant ANDRE) and Alvin Leung (Executive Chef and co-founder of Bo Innovation) set to share their expertise and dish out tips, it’s an event that should not be missed.

For the first time, the Congress is hosted by the Professional Culinary Association (PCA) and also the premier time it is held in Malaysia.

Says Thomas Gugler, President of Worldchefs, “The Congress is THE event for all chefs, when you can see thousands of chefs from around the world gather in one place. It’s a time when you can witness a unique mix of camaraderie, learning and progress. The Congress committee has worked very hard to put together a fascinating programme, and this would not have been possible without our sponsors.

Andy Cuthbert, Chairperson of the Congress Committee shared, “We have been refining the programme of every Congress edition to make it even more  relevant to the chefs of today. We are very glad to have a diverse mix of speakers and activities, who will inspire the chef of today, whether you have been in the industry for 30 years, or just two years.
