On 31st January 2017 the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts will launch the eighth Master of Culinary Arts (MCA).  Based on the Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF), the MCA is the UK hospitality industry’s most prestigious award for head chefs, pastry chefs and restaurant managers.
“The MCA is the highest honour in the catering industry; it examines the very finest details in service, pastry and kitchen and is the pinnacle of each discipline.  For me, a Master of Culinary Arts is a person who strives for perfection in their profession and has the grace and elegance to promote our craft to the next generation.”  John Williams MBE, Executive Chef, The Ritz London/Chairman, Royal Academy of Culinary Arts
The award of the MCA is conferred on those who have displayed mastery of the complex and specialised knowledge and skills in culinary arts which are required to be a first class chef, pastry chef or for restaurant management and service.  The holder of the MCA is able to demonstrate advanced technical skill and professional ability, accept accountability for their decision-making, contribute to supervision and management, support the development of others and act in the best interests of the culinary arts profession.
