Combined Services Culinary Arts

The Combined Services Culinary Challenge (CSCC) identifies military chefs, who demonstrate outstanding talent and potential at the very highest level, to go forward to compete on behalf of the UK’s Combined Services Culinary Arts Team (CSCAT).

CSCAT was formed in November 1997 to represent the three Services in world-class national and international culinary competitions; in particular, the military section of the culinary olympics. The CSCAT team consists of 24 individuals made up of eight cooks frome each of the three services.

The Worshipful Company of Cooks,together with other catering industry sponsors, provide a grant that goes some way to enabling the team to compete on the world stage. In March 2010, Past Master Alan Fairbrass was made Honorary Vice-President of CSCAT in recognition of his support for the organisation, the team, and the events.
