Website of the Month

Website of the Month: WACS Junior Chef Blog

Ever wonder if there’s more to our culinary family than SCA. Welcome to the family of WACS! The World Association of Chefs Societies, the global authority on food, is a global network of chefs associations with 72 chefs associations around the world under it. The organisation was founded in 1928 in Paris, with the venerable August Escoffier being its first Honorary President. More details on WACS can be found on

What I would really like to introduce to you today is the junior section of WACS. The WACS Junior Blog was set up to keep junior chefs, like you and me, informed of the latest happenings of junior chefs clubs around the world. Other news such as junior chefs competitions and scholarships can also be found on the blog. A MUST Bookmark website for all Junior Chefs…

Edwin Phua's Message

Hi to all Culinarians,

I’m Edwin, the Liaison Officer for the Institute of Technical Education (ITE). I’m currently with ITE Collage West, holding the designation as the Section Head Chef in Culinary Skills Department.

It has been a few weeks since the national culinary team has returned victoriously after a fulfilling trip from Germany. The team was there for the International Exhibition of Culinary Art (IKA), also known as the Culinary Olympics IKA. This event most likely is the most important event for chefs from all over the world. The national team had in total won triumphantly 3 Gold, 1 Silver and 1 Gold with distinction-pastry category medals. This fruitful and enjoyable experience is certainly worth reminiscing for life.

The national team was led by Captain Yen Koh, under mentorship by Chef Ivan Yeo (team coach) and Chef Jasmine Ng (team manager). The success was topped up by the great support from Chef Eric Teo and Chef Randy Chow from Singapore Chef Association.
For 9 months, the team had made a full dedication for training in hot cooking and cold table display. We have trained for many hours every week, every month, at the same time juggle between our work and busy training schedules. Although it is hectic during this period, the synergy and team spirit in us have motivated all of us to keep going; with greater assurance towards success that our efforts will eventually pay off, ensuring that the end products will be faultless.

Thank-you everyone for upholding the right spirit, common goal to maintain high standard and fantastic team work. Once again, all of us deserve a pat on our shoulder for doing our best and providing good results for this prestigious competition.

Culinary regards,
Edwin Phua
