Welcome to the Singapore Junior Chefs’ Club website! To those who are visiting this site for the first time, a very warm welcome to our family of fine young chefs.
Another year has passed and a new one has already begun. Let us all work together to make this year of the Ox even better!
The Club is celebrating its 5th Anniversary and the committee has planned out many interesting events for its members this year. Spearheading the year would be the Nestle Challenge which was a success in February. There’ll be edu-trips, culinary workshops and forums just to name a few.
Yes, the year of the Ox is destined to be a tough and challenging year for us all. Worry will not get us anywhere nor solve any problems. We must provide the solutions ourselves.
I am proud to be born in the year of the Ox. . The Oxen has a gentle yet steadfast character. Like the ox, we must emulate its steadfast and gentle personality: We must be steadfast in our goals, take on any challenges set before us head-on, and yet be gentle to the people and environment around us.
In this volatile economy, nothing is certain, except for one thing: Life must go on.
It’s not going to be easy, we’re all in for a rough ride. Hang on. Mooooooo! (Cheers!)
Your fellow culinary conductor in the kitchen
