Speakers in attendance were Top Chef Judge Bobby Chinn, Director of Culinary and F&B, Palazzo Versace Dubai Chef Mansour Memarian, and Senior Advisory Chef, Nestlé Professional – MENA Chef Mohammed Al Ghazzaoui.
“It was a valuable participation in this webinar and I was honoured to have a chat with Chefs Bobby Chinn and Mansour Memarian. We spoke about the effects of COVID-19 on a chef’s life and duties, shared our experiences on restaurants opening and our involvement, gave some tips for new, young chefs, and answered webinar attendees’ questions which provided for amazing, memorable engagement. Many thanks to Hotel & Catering News and especially to the editor Dina Maaty for the amazing organisation,” says Al Ghazzaoui.

I really enjoyed listening and learning from my colleagues’ perspective on this very difficult situation. These are extraordinary times, and they will pass, and in the meantime I do hope we can all do our best to remain positive.”
