History of Hong Kong Chefs Association
HKCA was founded in 1991 with a mission to create an association for professional chefs of all nationalities working in Hong Kong.
Up until this point the chefs´ association in Hong Kong had been the international Les Toques Blanches. The problem, however, was that it was perceived to be a club for expat executive chefs. Although this was untrue, the perception did prevent many local and other nationalities from joining.
The existing committee of Les Toques Blanches (Hong Kong) deliberated long and hard on how to increase membership and to attract more locals, making the association a truly Hong Kong chefs´ Association and that is how the idea was born.
The committee decided to become independent of Les Toques Blanches and created the Hong Kong Chefs Association (HKCA). The same committee members took over the new association, at least at the beginning.
Heinz Egli was the driving force behind this move and he was also elected the first President of the HKCA. Some of the original committee members left for career moves to Singapore and elsewhere, so other members joined the team, including Susan Field, Franz Kranzfelder and Chow Len Yuen.
