IACC Copper Skillet Canadian Cook-off
Call for Entries Deadline – Friday, December 23

IACC recognizes the vital role that foodservice plays in conference venue operations. Once again, we are proud to announce that we have begun planning for IACC’s 14th Annual Copper Skillet Global Chef of the Year Competition.

This competition is designed to highlight the artistry and skills of IACC-member conference venue chefs from around the world and to honor their contributions to our shared goal of providing an outstanding conference experience.

The first stage in the competition is to invite IACC chefs to participate in their country competitions. IACC invites Canadian chefs to submit entries for the IACC Copper Skillet U.S. Cook-off taking place on Tuesday, January 24 at NAV Centre in Cornwall, Ontario.

There are two categories of entry:
1. A senior category (26 years of age and older)
2. A junior category (under 26 years)

The junior and senior winners from the Canadian Cook-off will advance to stage 2 of the competition—at the Americas Chapter Cook-off—where they will compete against the American junior and senior chefs. The Americas chapter cook-off will take place February 15 in the Philadelphia region. Venue location will be confirmed prior to the US cook-off.

The final stage of the competition is the Global Copper Skillet Final taking place on Tuesday, April 4, 2017, in Los Angeles, where six chefs will vie for the coveted Copper Skillet award.

Chefs should review the Copper Skillet international guidelines, which can be found by clicking here. The deadline for submitting entries is Friday, December 23, 2016, with selected participants being notified by Friday, January 6 — four weeks prior to the competition.
