Chairman's Greeting

Greetings from the Organizing Chairman of this "Battle of the Chefs 2013", Chef Darren Tan. Warmest greetings from Chefs Association of Malaysia, Penang Chapter / Penang Chefs!

Darren Tan Is my great pleasure and honor to invite you and your organization, once again to our "Battle of the Chefs 2013" to be held from 12-14 June 2013 at Straits Quay Convention Centre, Penang, Malaysia. 

It was with your strong support from previous Battles that our event was endorsed by the World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) as a Continental Category Event for this year and we are looking forward to elevate it to higher level of recognition for our future events. My sincere thanks to Chef Gissur & the Board for acknowledging our effort to lift the standard of Asian Culinary skills.

In our home front, the Ministry of Tourism, Malaysia and Penang State Government had endorse this event as a National / State event and slated in the Tourism Calendar 2013 whereby international and domestic publicity will be emphasized. We have incorporate a theme for this year, "Celebrate Our Heritage" and we expect the chefs to prepare their dishes with their traditional and native ingredients to highlight the diverse ingredients from this region.


Message - WACS President

Gissur Gudmundsson

WACS has always believed in the value of competitions and how important it is to the chef profession. So it is a pleasure to always hear about what the Penang Chefs Association are doing with the Battle of the Chefs.

We are also very proud to see that after years of hard work, they have applied for the competition to be recognised as a Continental level event

Having been to Penang a few times, I am always humbled by the hospitality that the chefs from Penang have shown, and encouraged by their enthusiasm to learn through competitions. It is also a place that values heritage, and coming from Iceland and having travelled around the world.....
