This time last year Chef Network was still an idea. IFSA has seen the need for a platform to bring chefs together. They decided to step up to the plate and ask chefs what they wanted. The idea of Chef Network was born. In November 2015, focus groups of chefs came together in Dublin and Belfast to develop it’s mission, vision and objectives. Chef Network - an open, inclusive platform connecting chefs online & offline, dedicated to professional development and education for chefs – launched in February 2016.
