The theme for this year’s International Chef Day is, "Foods for Healthy Heroes". The importance of eating healthy and being respectful of the food one prepares and consumes is of utmost importance, and where better than to start from the grass root levels by instructing the youngest upcoming chef of this industry so that it can be cemented in their minds that they need to put to good use their culinary skill in a manner that is innovative, dynamic as well as healthy.
