Professional chefs' association in the making
published: Thursday | April 26, 2007

Jamaican chefs are currently in the process of forming a professional chefs' association.

Under the acting chairmanship of Round Hill Hotel's director of product development, Bill Moore, approximately 25 executive chefs, sous chefs and pastry chefs have been meeting monthly since January to investigate the need and potential for a professional association.

Sounding board

The chefs seek to act as a sounding board and influence the training of young professionals, the continued development of sustainable agriculture and the development of standards that speak to their own professional certification. They intend to forge a close working relationship with the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA), the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB), Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC), Tourism Development Company (TPDCo.) and the Ministry of Agriculture.

Nominations

They are currently in the process of nominating the executive committee for the association. Nominations will remain open until May 28, when the election and swearing-in of officers will take place.

Once formed, membership will be extended to junior and student members, allied members from the supply industry and culinary educators.

"Jamaica has a unique position in the development of a world-class Caribbean Cuisine and it behoves all of those involved in the industry to come together and work for the common good," stated Bill Moore.

For more information on the development of the culinary association please email:bill@roundhilljamaica.com or call 956-7050.
