ICM has been presented with a recognition award from the Chefs’ Association of Pakistan (CAP) for being the first international awarding body to accredit practical food-related programmes in Pakistan.
ICM accredits the Culinary Arts Awards available at Pakistan’s College of Tourism & Hotel Management (COTHM). Mr Babar Sheikh, COTHM’s Director Coordinator, communicated the benefits such international recognition could give to students, and also encouraged more student chefs to apply for these courses.
The award was aptly presented on International Chef’s Day, 20 October – the first time this international occasion has been celebrated in the country. More than 300 students, professionals and executive chefs attended the ceremony.
