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.

A WORD FROM OUR CHAIRMAN

We are hot off the heels from the Culinary Olympics in Stuggart, Germany where both National Senior and Junior Culinary Teams were competing in the Restaurant of Nations and the Chef’s Table categories.  For the Senior National Team they had to prepare a three-course meal for 110 guests served at the restaurant table and a Chef’s Table comprising of six dishes for 10 guests (two for the Jury) served at a large table in front of the competition kitchen.

The Junior National Team’s competition is very similar and comprises a three-course meal for 70 guests served at the restaurant table and a Chef’s
 

Table comprising of six dishes for 10 guests (two for the Jury) served at a large table in front of the competition kitchen. I am delighted to report their hard work and dedication paid off!

 

Congratulations to the Senior National Team who received two Silver medals and the Junior National Team who picked up two Bronze medals. Chris Zammit, who was responsible for the Senior National Teams Centre Piece for the Chef’s Table, received the highest marks out of the 24 competing teams producing an AI inspired masterpiece.

 

I’d like to also add a special thanks to all our National Team sponsors, competition support and everyone who supported the teams.
