As mentioned elsewhere , I have the not so “deplaisant” task of introducing you to our next competition “The Escoffier Challenge 2011” . This competition has seen the day and was and still is organised so for to promote the industry , our industry , offering to professionals and students a chance of striving and challenging themselves , gaining very useful tools , equipping one with serious knowledge , organisation and confidence , very often neglected beside the winning prizes.
Of course a beautiful trophy , diploma or medal along with a seriously merited added experience to one Curriculum is not to be neglected . Nevertheless , let the cooking do the talking.
I may only wish the very best of luck to all participants.
