A series of culinary competitions accompanied by a new trade exhibition aims to change the landscape of the cooking and baking industry in the region.
Traditionally held in February within the Gulfood exhibition, the Worldchefs accredited Emirates International Salon Culinaire will move to an exciting new home in 2019. A platform that will put chefs, pastry chefs, bakers and cooks as the primary audience of an event dedicated specifically to the culinary community.
Uwe Micheel, president of the Emirates Culinary Guild (ECG) and someone who has seen the Emirates International Salon Culinaire develop over 25 years said: “The Salon Culinaire started with just a handful of chefs in an exhibition that used one hall, it now commands more than 1300 entries into one of the world’s leading culinary competitions. It has been a wonderful partnership with Gulfood and the support of DWTC has been much appreciated.
“An exhibition focused on our core interests, surrounding the region’s longest running event for chefs will take us to a new level. I am looking forward to our regular classes and to the new elements of ExpoCulinaire 2019.”
Andy Cuthbert, chairman, ECG said: “It has been a pleasure to grow alongside Gulfood and to mirror its success with our competition. It is equally important to secure the most appropriate future platform for our specialised sector and ExpoCulinaire is an exciting opportunity to do that while maintaining our Q1 calendar slot.”
ExpoCulinaire will take place from 4 – 6 March 2019 at Expo Centre Sharjah.
