International Chefs Day - 20 October.

International Chefs Day is celebrated each year on October 20th. The day focuses on educating kids around the world about eating healthy. It’s also a day for chefs to pass on their knowledge and skills to the next generation of chefs.

The different kinds of chefs include:

  • Executive chef – as managers for multiple outlets, executive chefs do very little cooking.
  • Head chef – manages kitchen staff and controls the whole kitchen.
  • Sous chef – the chef that is second in command to the head chef.
  • Chef de Partie – runs a specific part of the kitchen.
  • Commis chef – a junior member of the restaurant staff that works under a chef de partie.
  • Kitchen porter – assists with basic food preparation, such as peeling potatoes.
  • Dishwasher – washes all the dishes and cutlery. It’s not uncommon for a dishwasher to work their way up the chef ladder.

Some chefs specialize in preparing certain kinds of food. For instance, a butcher chef is in charge of preparing meats and poultry. A grill chef manages the grill. A pastry chef is responsible for creating desserts.

No matter the type of chef, it’s not just about making food. Chefs consider their profession an art and a science. They enjoy creating delicious combinations of food but want to make it look good, too.

Esteemed chef Dr. Bill Gallagher created International Chefs Day in 2004. Gallagher was also the president of the World Association of Chefs Societies (WorldChefs). Since 2004, WorldChefs has used International Chefs Day to celebrate the nobility of this culinary profession.

The theme for this year is “Growing A Healthy Future.” The idea behind this theme is to ensure a healthy and sustainable planet for future generations. This can happen when we teach them the value of food and its impact on the environment.
