Born in France, the Association of Disciples Escoffier International was created to honour the memory of Auguste Escoffier, credited for elevating French Haute cuisine to new heights. As with the theme of Voilah this year – France Imagines, France Innovates, the festival is also looking to pass on the innovative spirit of Auguste Escoffier through this programme.
 
Contributions of Auguste Escoffier
·         Revolutionised the way fine dining kitchens were organised, with his ‘Brigade’ division of labour system – which was so efficient that it can cater for up to 500 people at a time
·         Instilled strict hygiene standards, and made the Chefs’ traditional white toques and uniforms into the worldwide industry standard they have become today
·         Wrote the book Le Guide Culinarie, which is now considered a timeless ‘Bible’ for classic French cooking, and is still used today by chefs around the world
·         Developed a new gastronomic philosophy – a sense of highly refined simplicity in dining, taking into account nutrition principles and freshness of ingredients
