International Chef’s Day 2022: International Chefs Day is observed every year on October 20th to honour culinary masters who have designed to protect the value of food and are passing on the same utterance to future generations.
This year’s theme is “Growing A Healthy Future.” The idea behind this theme is to ensure that future generations have a healthy and sustainable planet. This is possible if we teach them the importance of food and its impact on the environment.
International Chefs Day dates back to the early days of the WACS, when the organization’s founders recognised the need for a day to honour chefs and showcase their talent to the rest of the world. WACS hosted its first International Congress of Culinary Professionals in 1974 in Geneva, Switzerland. During this congress, it was decided that each year on October 20th, an International Chefs Day would be held.
Happy International Chefs Day 2022.

International Chefs Day: Quotes
“Chefs don’t make mistakes; they make new dishes.” – Elizabeth Brigg
“I believe that there is always something new to learn, in fact, that is one of the three reasons that I chose to become a chef, that my education is never over.” – Anne Burrell
“Skills can be taught. Character you either have or you don’t have.” – Anthony Bourdain
“In cooking, you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” – Julia Child
Here are a few cooking helpful hints from the best chefs to help you improve your cooking and make it easier, less stressful, and more delicious!
1. Add Salt During Cooking: While the food is still cooking, sprinkle a little salt on top of everything. Remember to season and taste as you go. When you leave it until the end, it loses its ability to deepen various flavours.
2. Prep In Advance: Celebrity chef Kishwar Chowdhury believes that planning ahead of time for a meal is a great way to keep your kitchen organised for the entire week. She also stated in an Instagram live that she keeps herbs in paper-lined containers in her own kitchen.
3. Control Temperature: Temperature is also important in the cooking process of any dish. “You can always fix an undercooked situation, but there’s nothing you can do once you’ve gone over.” So, when working with ovens or air fryers, make sure to keep the temperature under control.
4. Make use of fresh ingredients: While the cooking process is crucial, the raw materials are also absolutely essential. “Never compromise on the quality of ingredients,” says celebrity chef Jason DeSouza. “The freshest and best ingredients elevate your cooking and dining experience.”
5. Maintain Simplicity: Complex instructions or convoluted cooking methods frequently confuse us. In times like these, it’s best to keep things simple, and chef Ashish Singh agrees. “Many people believe that adding soda to dal will make it cook faster, but this is not always the case. When boiling Dal, always add a few drops of oil. As a result, the simplest method of cooking any particular dish is the best method,” Singh concludes.
