FOLLOWING the inaugural Pacific Culinary Training workshop in the region, plans are in the pipeline to strengthen the network between chefs and local farmer associations.

This was the comment made by South Pacific Tourism Organisation project manager Chris Cocker during the final day of the culinary training workshop in Nadi yesterday.

"This is the first one (workshop) so there should be another culinary event," he said.

"What we are not sure of at the moment is what form that workshop will be in.

"We need to have a stronger network of local farmer association bodies because at the moment, these chefs don't know who to contact for local produce."

"The week-long European Union sponsored workshop had received amazing feedback," says Mr Cocker.
