THE VIBE OF YCO
Young Chef Olympiad is the biggest platform for student chefs to showcase their talent and also to mingle with talent from across the world. The energy, the vibe, readiness of young talent is outstanding in a space which is international and huge like YCO. For me, IIHM today represents the pulse of the youth and the pulse of the young chef. And an event like Young Chef Olympiad totally encapsulates that pulse, the energy that today’s young chefs have. It’s the greatest initiative for student chefs on this planet. I am very happy to be a part of it.
yco — BIGGER & BETTER
Each year YCO is a vast leap from the earlier season in terms of organisation, quality of talent, and overall level of the competition. The food pleasantly surprises all of us judges with its quality, creativity, and thought. I am looking forward to more excitement and interaction next season.
