A free-to-attend skills enriching program for the next generation of chefs in Malaysia.
Alongside the schedule of dining events, masterclasses and talks, Kita Food Festival presents Horizons, a mentorship program which will see a selection of handpicked junior chefs guided through a series of skill expansion activities. Over the course of three months, 12-15 promising young chefs who have shown commitment to their profession will be introduced to a series of experiences and mentors designed to inspire, evolve and broaden their horizons.
The 2022 Program includes:
An excursion to visit local farms focusing on community development and sustainability
A full day of cooking demonstrations by some of Malaysia’s finest culinary heritage keepers and avant-garde chefs
Three senior chefs from KL, Aidan Low, Ka Hong Lau and Mandy Goh, will then guide teams of Horizons chefs as they source, prepare and cook a selection of dishes using offcuts of meat and grade two vegetables – produce often destined for landfill – for the Kita Food festival Thank You dinner on Monday, 28 November 2022
