Executive chefs from Fiji’s leading resorts have come together to collaborate on a mission to develop the culinary talent to an international level.
It also aims to transform Fiji into an exotic food destination.
The Culinary Federation of Fiji (CFF) has for the first time tourism, brought together the executive chefs, hoteliers, suppliers, farmers, training institutions and government agencies with the single goal of developing the country’s cuisine.
The new not-for-profit body represents chefs from the majority of Fiji’s hotel and resort properties, they include Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay, Sheraton, Westin, Sofitel Fiji Resort, Radisson Blu Resort Fiji Denarau Island, Hilton Fiji Beach Resort, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton, Castaway Island Resort, Plantation Island Resort, Malamala Beach Club, Holiday Inn, First Landing Resort, Grand Pacific Hotel, as well as local restaurants groups including Jack’s of Fiji, Cake World and Nando’s Fiji.
Federation Executive chair Prabhat Prawin said: “We hope to ignite a passion that may already be there for some and drive them to take the dive into becoming the best chefs they can be.”
The members, who are internationally-trained executive chefs, have offered their time and talent to give back to the country in the form of culinary innovation, collaborative training, food festivals and events.
The federation will also create a hype to encourage interest in the chef profession in the community.
One of the key platforms of the organisation is to develop the international culinary skills of local chefs through a paid apprenticeship programme in partnership with secondary and tertiary training institutions and CFF members.
