Chef’s World Summit in Monaco

Chef’s World Summit in Monaco

By Stephanie Horsman - November 5, 2019

Three days of workshops, classes and conferences for chefs and culinary professionals from around the world will be the basis for the Chef’s World Summit at the Grimaldi Forum later this month.

These gastro-pros are coming together to discuss the changes in their professions under three main themes: eco-responsibility, training and recruitment methods for a new generation, and the latest in catering concepts.

Under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II, this 4th annual congress will see Christophe Bacquié, Executive Chef of his eponymous restaurant in Le Castellet, as Honorary Chairperson and Executive Chef at Geneva’s Hotel President Wilson, Michael Roth, as the International Sponsor. 

The event will touch on hot topics ranging from gastronomy, bistronomy, wines, trends, marketing, youth training, teamwork, and cooking for those with allergies.  

But the event is not just for those already in the culinary arts business, it is also a place for people interested in the high-end food and beverage industry, those wishing to advance their skills and knowledge, and those who are considering this career path.

In addition to the many talks, exhibitors and workshops, there will be special events such as the unveiling of the 2020 ‘100 Chefs’ from Le Chef Magazine, who will also be awarding the top 10 chefs as they see it, the International Cuisine Cup/Prince Albert II of Monaco Trophy which grants the prize to the chef who executes the best all-around meal using their own creativity mixed with adherence to French culinary heritage, the International Culinary Photography Festival exhibit, and a Chef’s Gala.

The conference runs from 24th to 26th November. For more information go online at
