A new four-day culinary event aimed at raising funds and donating proceeds towards culinary scholarships is set to start on May 29.

Master Class Fiji is being organised by a group of executive chefs and hospitality industry workers.

The Coliseum managing director, Valentin Corchado said: “This project will bring together a myriad of chefs and professionals like never before in Fiji.

“The aim of this event is to support and promote equality and gender balance in our kitchens, through the introduction of culinary scholarships for high potential Fijian female chefs.

“We are aiming to raise enough funds to provide six culinary scholarships”.

The event is expected to take place at The Rhum-Bar on Denarau Island, Nadi.

It will host workshops and cooking demonstrations by leading professionals.

Chefs and culinary professionals will conduct a presentation or cooking demonstration of about two to three hours.

Given the talent and skill of these individuals, Master Class Fiji would be of great interest to current hospitality work force, chefs, students in the field and general public who may be interested to see hospitality professionals and real action.

Mr Corchado added this is another sample of how chefs and professionals can work together for the benefit of our community.

He said events as such would benefit of the community.

“Over the course of last two years, we raised over $150,000 for the benefit of our community and distributed to various charities and non for profit organisations.”

The event is scheduled from May 29 to June 1.
