As you know, all of the proceeds from my book sales through April are going to charity. I really appreciate everyone’s support for a great cause. Here is another fantastic review that I just have to share:

Throughout my career, I have had the privilege to come across a lot of talented chefs. Creative and innovative dishes have been created by these chefs while sometimes, I feel, there has been missing a platform for these chefs to showcase their innovation and share their ideas and inspirations.

 

A lo largo de mi carrera he tenido el privilegio de conocer a muchos chefs talentosos. Platos creativos e inovadores han sido creados por estos chefs aunque a veces, yo siento, que hay una falta de plataforma en la que ellos puedan demostrar su innovación y compartir sus ideas e inspiraciones.

 

Part of the inspiration to create a culinary organization was to give these chefs a platform to share their work. Another big part of this inspiration is for each of us, in the food industry, to use our individual efforts to reach a collective goal. To help make the food industry better, more creative and most of all better for all to enjoy.

 

Parte de la inspiración para crear una organización culinaria es dar a estos chefs una plataforma para que compartan su trabajo. Otra gran parte de esta inspiración es que con el esfuerzo de cada uno de nosotros, en la industria alimentaria, podamos alcanzar una meta colectiva. Y así ayudar a la mejora de la industria alimentaria, para que sea más creativa y sobretodo para que todos la disfrutemos.

 

In the coming month, I will be launching a new, creative, innovative and artistic chefs organization called the Council of Innovative chefs. For you, the chef, this will be your platform to share your work, to share your ideas and to network with the leaders throughout our industry. It will also be a platform to learn from industry leaders and artists alike.

Stay tuned for the launch of a truly innovative chefs organization and I look forward to your participation and support.

 

En los siguientes meses, estaré lanzando una nueva, creativa, innovadora y artística organización de chefs llamada “Council of Innovative Chefs”. Para ud., el chef, ésta será su plataforma en la cual podrá compartir su trabajo, sus ideas y podrá relacionarse con los líderes y artistas de la industria tal como ud.

Manténgase atento al lanzamiento de una organización de chefs realmente innovadora y estaré contando con su participación y apoyo.

Like many organizations, it important to communicate your message in the brand you chose to represent your organization. My thought behind the brand I chose for the Council of Innovative Chefs is explained as follows:

The main body of the brand is an artichoke. Naturally beautiful by nature it is a symbol of natures perfection. The green is a symbol of the earth while the purple highlights show a maturing of its body ready to be shared.

Within the artichoke is a light bulb in the shape of elephant garlic as a symbol of enlightenment through food. The filament within the lightbulb is a classical pastry garnish I am sure you recognize as a symbol of completeness. When a dish is garnished, it is complete. The lightbulb, of course, represents ideas since every great undertaking is birthed by thought.

The stem off the artichoke is drawn to replicate the base of the light bulb. This is to represent ‘plugging in’ for the idea (light bulb) to work, it needs to come in contact with a power source just as the stem connects the plant to the earth.

I believe this brand resonates with a lot of us. It is neither restricted to one country but is aimed to represent our global community of culinary innovators. It is also not restricted to one discipline of chef but aimed to represent all chefs from all levels of a brigade who are inspired to strive for the perfection of our art. The same as nature has been represented as perfect through the artichoke.

So now that you know the back story behind the brand of the Council of Innovative chefs,

I hope you will share in the organization. cheflogo_200x200_png_pagespeed_ce_1PTOxrK8cN
