Welsh chefs will celebrate the 60th birthday of the Culinary Association of Wales (CAW) at a Gala Dinner at the International Convention Centre Wales (ICC Wales), Newport on June 20th 2023.
CAW members can take advantage of an early bird ticket offer of £60 before the end of May, otherwise tickets cost £100 each or £900 for a table of ten. Contact secretary@culinaryassociation.wales to book a ticket. The evening will include a canape reception as well as a three course dinner with Welsh wines.

CAW president Arwyn Watkins said: “We are planning a great night with some wonderful speakers, catching up with past Culinary Team Wales members, National and Junior Chef of Wales winners, enjoying great food and wine, as well as connecting with our business partners. It has been a rollercoaster ride since the CAW first started in 1993, with many highs and a few hurdles to overcome, which we have done with grace and hard work.

“Many of our board members cherish the first Welsh International Culinary Championships in 1994, but my personal landmarks are achieving Worldchefs membership in Kyoto, Japan in 2002 and, on New Year’s Eve last year, winning the bid to host the Worldchefs Congress in 2026.”

Watkins believes the gala dinner will provide an opportunity for the CAW to build new and develop existing business relationships in the run up to the Worldchefs Congress at ICC Wales.
