From Bethlehem University Institute of Tourism Training (BUITT)

On Thursday, 9 November 2017 the launch ceremony for “Young Chef Olympiad 2018” (YCO) took place in the presence of the YCO executive committee, along with the Official Draw. The Official Draw decided the grouping of the participating teams from 50 countries for Round 1 at the Olympiad which is being scheduled for late January 2018. Five groups were alphabetically named with 10 teams in each group. The results showed Palestine – represented by Bethlehem University –  in “Group B” along with the teams from Scotland, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Sweden, Russia, N. Ireland, Bahrain, Maldives and Canada. It is worth mentioning that Mr. Julian Rishmawi, a graduate of the Culinary Arts vocational program overseen by Bethlehem University Institute of Tourism Training (BUITT), will be representing Palestine in the Olympiad. He shall be accompanied by the mentor Chef Peter Hermantas, the Cooking Instructor at the institute.

Wishing our team much luck and success in the Olympiad.
