20 October is celebrated (not quite enough, I think) all over the world as International Chefs Day. Today is a time to celebrate who chefs are, what we do and the delight we share in the trust we are given.
Trust is a big deal in the food world ... no one ever goes into a restaurant and asks about the chef's safety record ... we just don't. We may want to see their Michelin Stars, but everything else is taken on absolute trust ... which is why it is absolutely verbotten to ever fool around with food offered to someone. Chefs are utterly trusted, and that trust must never, ever be broken.
Today we celebrated International Chefs Day in two ways ... one serious, one just with a sense of fun.

In the afternoon we all hustled down to The Good Shepherd Mission (on Queen East at Sackville) and spent the afternoon preparing and serving a meal for about 400 guests after a welcoming tour of the Mission from Rebecca, the volunteer co-ordinator.
Well done, everyone!
