The FIFA World Cup wrapped up just last month, but there is yet another world cup event that also takes place every four years. The Culinary World Cup! This competition takes place during one of Europe’s most popular culinary fairs, EXPOGAST. The Culinary World Cup is rated the second most important culinary competition worldwide, and it is an event not to be missed. More than 45 culinary teams from around the world will travel to Luxembourg to take part in this extraordinary culinary competition for an opportunity to showcase their gastronomy and culinary workmanship skills. The teams are judged by an international panel of chefs for a chance to win bronze, silver, and gold medals – with the best teams in each category receiving the Culinary World Cup. The most exciting part about this event (at least for those of us here at Dorsey Schools) is that our own Chef Jeremy Abbey and Chef Matt Schellig are a part of one of the teams that are traveling to the culinary world cup in Luxembourg! The team of chefs includes:
- Chef Jeremy Abbey, CEC, CCE, CCA, Culinary Director at Dorsey Schools’ Waterford-Pontiac Campus.
- Chef Matt Schellig, CEC, CCE, Culinary Instructor and Catering Manager at Dorsey Schools’ Roseville Campus.
- Chef David Daniot, CEC, Chef of the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club.
- Chef Tom Giles, CEC, Executive Chef at Bronson Healthcare Group in Kalamazoo, MI.
- Chef Jake Williams, CEC, Cooking Matters Coordinator at Gleaners Community Food Bank, Detroit, MI.
- Team Manager: Chef John Piazza, CEC, Culinary Arts Program Director at Dorsey Schools.
You can see if Dorsey Schools’ own chefs win the Culinary World Cup gold from November 22-28.
