A chef’s influence on students’ performance and results is rarely spoken or written about. However, being aware of the vital impact chefs’ choices and skills can have on the well-being and success of both individuals and institutions, in the short and long run, the Inter-European Education Department decided it was high time to organize a training event for chefs, having in mind EGW’s words: ‘Cooking may be regarded as less desirable than some other lines of work, but in reality it is a science in value above other sciences. 

Thus God regards the preparation of healthful food. He places a high estimate on those who do faithful service in preparing wholesome, palatable food. The one who understands the art of properly preparing food, and who uses this knowledge, is worthy of higher commendation than those engaged in any other line of work. This talent should be regarded as equal in value to ten talents; for its right use has much to do with keeping the human organism in health. Because so inseparably connected with life and health, it is the most valuable of all gifts.’ Manuscript 95, 1901

The initial public target was made up of chefs from secondary schools, and universities, but later on we decided to extend the invitation to chefs from our nursing homes and health centers as well, so that more of our institutions could benefit from their chefs’ enriched talents. Therefore, participants from Germany, Austria and Romania gathered, 25-28 August ,2019 in the campus of the Adventus University, Cernica, Romania.
