The formation of the British Culinary Federation is the result of the Midlands Association of Chefs and the Chefs & Cooks Circle joining together. The Chefs & Cooks Circle was the most senior chefs’ association, founded in 1948 and the Midlands Association of Chefs was an immediate success story, following its foundation in 1978.
We are now one of the largest associations in the United Kingdom and our membership is spread throughout the country in hotels, restaurants, contract catering, colleges and the Armed Services. We also have members in Canada, South Africa, Germany, Malta and the USA – in fact, in most countries around the world!
We aim to promote culinary skills throughout the industry and protect the interests of our membership. We are available to support and gain recognition for our members as highly skilled professionals within the catering industry and can provide information at all levels of the profession. To help us achieve this, we liaise with examining bodies and other educational and vocational establishments in relation to the culinary arts.
