For the first time since its inception, the 59th General Assembly of French Master Chefs – “Maitres Cuisiners de France” – will bring their worldwide meetings to the United States, March 5-9, 2014. The event will also celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the American and Canadian delegations and the U.S. Chapter of “l’Academie Culinaire De France” (ACF).
The 5-day event will be held at the culinary capital of the Las Vegas Strip, The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas. The 5-diamond resort is home to more James Beard Award-winning chefs than any other destination. The Venetian and The Palazzo Executive Chef Olivier Dubreuil is also a Master Chef of France. It was through his hard work and dedication to the organization that his invitation to bring the meetings to America was accepted.
“We are so proud of the world-class chefs that call The Venetian and The Palazzo home and it’s even more special to host such a prestigious event and bring the culinary world to Las Vegas,” said John Caparella, president and chief operating officer of The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo.
“Maîtres Cuisinier de France” (Master Chef of France) is the most envied title that chefs aspire to have; but not everyone can become a “Maître Cuisinier” said Chef Olivier Dubreuil. The organization’s motto is “to preserve and spread the French culinary arts, encourage training in cuisine, and assist professional development.” “Maîtres Cuisiniers de France” are often given the highest classification in restaurant guides, and are regularly mentioned in the world’s leading food and travel magazines.
The Association of “Maîtres Cuisiniers de France” employs nearly 10,000 qualified people and is also closely involved in the activities of the Regional Commissions for vocational diplomas and certificates granted by specialized schools. It participates actively to promote products of “top quality” such as the Red Labels and “Appellations d’Origine Contrôlée” or European signs of quality, such as the IGP, AOP and STG.
In March, nearly 150 Master Chefs will stay at The Venetian Las Vegas to review the previous year’s accomplishments, look ahead to next year and find ways to help other communities promote upcoming events. In addition new members will be added to the Master Chef list with an induction ceremony.
The “l’Academie Culinaire de France” will also host a special dinner to elect the woman of the year and reward one of their member with the “Fauteuil de l’ Academie” for lifetime achievement.
