Dear Fellow Members,
It gives me great pleasure in welcoming all of you to the Singapore Chefs’ Association website. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome on board our new corporate members and Chef members who have joined us for 2018. I would also like to thank all existing corporate members and industry partners who have rendered us your generous support throughout the years.
Special thanks to each and every Committee Member of the Singapore Chefs’ Association. They have taken time off their busy schedules to help further the single belief of the association – growing the brand of local chefs and nurturing the next generation of chefs for the nation.
2017 had been an excellent year for SCA. We launched the SCA Commemorative Book: Firestarter, to celebrate 33 years of culinary excellence by the association; our historic wins and being crowned championed in the World Cup, Culinary Olympics and Young Chefs Challenge. It is a labour of love made possible only by the support of E2i and our industry supporters.
We had a strong performance in the Competitions front, with a Gourmet Team led by David Toh. SCA also believes in being public-spirited. We believe in giving back to society and helping the needy, therefore we would always include CSR activities into our calendar. In 2017, our Olympic Team cooked for a few Charity Dinners: Dr. NK Yong, World Gourmet Summit, Red Cross, Singapore Symphony Orchestra, just to name a few. We also participated / cooked in other corporate events, eg. STB-Streats, SG Day, SG Masters, Gourmet Nights, Chaîne des Rôtisseurs and Wine & Dine.
In 2018, we will once again be setting our sights on new heights. We will be having two teams (Gourmet Team and National Team) competing in the Food & Hotel Asia 2018 in April. The Luxembourg Expogast World Cup in November will also be a challenge for us, as we will be defending our title of Champion. To our Sponsors and Supporting Partners, we would once again ask for your utmost support in helping us achieve this.
We are also please to announce that we will be sending a strong delegation to the Worldchefs Congress in Kuala Lumpur in July. It shall be one of the largest delegation that we have send for Congress thus far, incorporating Chefs from SCA, SJCC and SPA.
With our Social Activities Calendar planned by Elvin Chew, I am confident that members will have fantastic time of networking and having fun throughout the year.
I would like to reiterate a big thank you to all corporate sponsors and industry partners who have always believed in us while empowering us to do what we do best. At the end of the day, it really is about how “our success is your success”.
With Culinary Regards,
Chef Edmund Toh
Singapore Chefs Association
