Qatar Tourism prepares to kick off the "World Class Chefs" project

The two-year initiative in collaboration with Qatar Airways, Qatar Aircraft Catering company (QACC) and Kings of Kitchen, will bring world's top chefs to Qatar

  • The project aims to further enrich the country’s thriving culinary scene and explore investment opportunities 

Qatar Tourism, in collaboration with Qatar Airways, Qatar Aircraft Catering company (QACC) and Kings of Kitchen, is all set to kick off the “World Class Chefs” initiative later this month. The two-year initiative aims to host high-profile and award-winning international chefs from all over the world in Qatar, with the purpose to further enrich the country’s thriving culinary scene and explore investment opportunities.  

Through the “World Class Chefs” project, Qatar Tourism, in collaboration with its partners, will diversify the country’s tourism offerings for domestic audiences and international visitors by introducing new gastronomic experiences. Qatar Tourism facilitates investment opportunities in various tourism sub-sectors, particularly the hospitality sector, strengthening Qatar's position as a tourist destination featuring restaurants by high-profile international chefs. Qatar currently boasts an eclectic dining scene with restaurants by many globally celebrated chefs, as well as a strong and diversified multi-award-winning hospitality sector, which makes the country a promising destination to introduce new concepts in fine dining.

Berthold Trenkel, COO Qatar Tourism commented: “The food & beverage sector in Qatar is reflective of the country’s patchwork of residents and is a key element of our tourism offering.  Food-related events are extremely popular in the country, and we are excited to introduce the ‘World Class Chefs’ project, along with the return of beloved events such as Qatar International Food Festival, in the coming months. With a multitude of food experiences, such initiatives help showcase the country’s offerings in the sector to more varied audiences.”

The “World Class Chefs” project will kick off in end of October, with the visit of the French Chef Julien Roucheteau, who is a Michelin Star Chef and has many international awards to his credit.

Qatar Tourism has launched several initiatives and festivals to support the hospitality, retail, and food & beverage sectors. These include the “Qatar Clean” program in collaboration with Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), as well as the “Chefs of Qatar” virtual food festival and the country’s most celebrated Qatar International Food Festival. With the borders now open for international visitors, Qatar Tourism is maintaining a strong focus on improving the visitor experience to ensure the country is ready to welcome guests to enjoy the country’s tourism products and offerings.
