The Emirates Culinary Guild

The Emirates Culinary Guild (ECG) is the UAE’s association of professional chefs. It is a non-profit-making organisation dedicated solely to the advancement of the culinary art of the UAE.

The World Association of Cooks Societies (WACS) is a 52-nation fellowship comprising the world’s various professional chefs’ organisations.

The ECG received its charter into WACS at a ceremony in Stavanger, Norway on June 28, 1994, during the WACS 26th World Congress. WACS endorses the ECG as the authorised UAE culinary institute. The ECG, thereby, has an international culinary focus and multi-national support for the staging of its various competitions, seminars and events.

World Association of Chefs' Societies

The World Association of Chefs' Societies, or WACS in short, is a global network of chefs associations first founded in October 1928 at the Sorbonne in Paris. At that first congress there were 65 delegates from 17 countries, representing 36 national and international associations, and the venerable August Escoffier was named the first Honourary President of WACS.

Today, this global body has 93 official chefs associations as members that represent over 10 million professional chefs world wide. The biennel congress is a hallmark tradition of WACS and has been organised in over 20 cities across the world throughout its illustrious 82-year history.

WACS is managed by an elected presidential body consisting of the WACS president, vice president, treasurer, secretary general and ambassador honourary president, as well as a board of continenal directors that look after the regions of Asia, Europe, Africa, the Pacific and the Americas. Our programs and different activities are managed by three separate committees, the Culinary Competitions Committee, the Education Committee and the Marketing and Communication committee as well as several sub-committees.
