‘Let Fiji’s Food Revolution Begin!’

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 resorts

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.

Key platform

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.
