WCWB CSR Siem Reap Cambodia 2020 Postponed Due to Coronavirus

WCWB CSR Siem Reap Cambodia 2020 Postponed Due to Coronavirus

Paris, 9th of March 2020 – World Chefs Without Borders (WCWB) would like to extend its sincere appreciation to the 105 Chefs from 32 countries currently registered as participants for WCWB CSR Siem Reap Cambodia 2020.

Due to the many unforeseen difficulties and global threat of the Coronavirus, WCWB CSR Siem Reap Cambodia has been postponed until October 20-24, 2020 and will launch on International Chefs Day!

WCWB Committee Chairman, Willment Leong, stated “The objective of the Chefs Social Responsibility (CSR) is to share our happiness, goodwill and what we have with others, however, the safety of our participating chefs and their families is our first priority. By postponing the tour, we may prevent being exposed to or carrying the virus during our travelling.”

President Thomas Gugler stated, “With my personal commitment as well as involvement and heartfelt pain, it’s a hard step but we don’t want to risk the health of our participating chefs and their families or the well-being of our hosts and those families we are going to Cambodia to help.” He further commented “We want to spread happiness and health all around the globe by involving as many nationalities as possible but due to the growing restrictions, which we are facing, it’s the wisest decision to wait for a more fortunate time.” 

WCWB would like to extend its appreciation to everyone for their continued support and looks forward to meeting all the passionate chefs in Cambodia on October 20-24, 2020, when we can enjoy and spread our positive emotions, feelings and passion throughout Cambodia and the world.

Together, WCWB believes we can overcome any obstacles and perform what we believe to be, our Chefs Social Responsibility.



Willment Leong, WCWB Chairman

Introduction to Chefs Helping Chefs

Introduction to Chefs Helping Chefs

Full Scale Training, Education and Consulting to

Bring Your Team to the 5 Star Standards of Excellence

Introduction to Chefs Helping Chef, LLC

Kindly let me take the liberty to introduce myself; I am Chef Jeffrey Rotz, globally certified Executive Chef through World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) and the American Culinary Federation (ACF). I am also Certified Culinary Educator (CCE), and the principal owner of Chefs Helping Chefs (CHC); a company solely created for the betterment of the hospitality industry.
Over the past 10 years, “CHC” has become a leader for gastronomical training in the Caribbean and Mexico. Our past clients also include properties in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, and the cruise ship industry.

As the name of my company implies, we are here to provide a helping hand to the Chefs and Hospitality Professionals around the globe, mainly by providing live and in person training needs where busy schedules often get in the way of furthering employee education and certification. We assist in preparation for the written and practical exams for the prestigious ACF and WACS certifications. However, our training is not limited to Nutrition, Food Safety & Sanitation, Supervisory Management and Cost Control, but can also encompass additional hands-on training of every aspect of back or front of the house job skills.

Contrary to our competitors, all of our instructors have worked over 20 years in the industry; we teach from experience not only book knowledge. Curriculum are property-specific written, not one fits all, and we are cost-effective and results-driven; while keeping the students and properties success at the forefront of all training.
Today’s travelers are more educated and more aware of the “behind the scenes” of the hospitality industry than ever before. Television and media have taken their cameras into kitchens, and with that, your employees and your property are in the spotlight immediately as it happens. Development of your in-house food and beverage team is critical to attaining and maintaining high ratings in the travel industry.

Education and certification are the best way to get there. The “JCTI”, Jamaica Center of Tourism Innovation, has recognized the growing demands and observations of travelers and implemented an initiative whereas every graduate in culinary and hospitality will enter the workforce with an ACF or NRAEF certification, in addition to investing in a “Train the Trainer” course administered by Chefs Helping Chefs LLC.

We are looking forward to discussing your training needs.
