I am honoured to welcome you again to Bangkok, Thailand, for the Thailand Ultimate Chef Challenge (TUCC). On behalf of the Thailand Chefs Association, I would like to extend my warmest greetings.


TUCC, a landmark chef competition in Southeast Asia, is a pivotal event that brings together the Thai chef community and welcomes chefs from around the globe to present a rich blend of cross-cultural experiences.


The competition presents exceptional excellence, passion, technique and creativity and serves as a launchpad for tomorrow’s greatest chefs to gain international recognition. Beyond the contest, it also provides growth opportunities as a chef and individual.


I wish all competitors a successful and fulfilling TUCC experience. To our spectators and supporters, brace yourself for a week of thrilling culinary action, delicious food and celebration!


Let the culinary magic commence!
