The British Culinary Federation
The formation of the British Culinary Federation is the result of the Midlands Association of Chefs and the Chefs & Cooks Circle joining together. The Chefs & Cooks Circle was the most senior chefs’ association, founded in 1948 and the Midlands Association of Chefs was an immediate success story, following its foundation in 1978.
The British Culinary Federation, World Association of Chef Societies National Member has been founded on a partnership between the Chefs and Cooks Circle and the Midlands Association of Chefs who, between them have over 85 years of experience in the industry.
The BCF is the only internationally recognised Chefs organisation for England.
