Mourning the Loss of Chef Claudio Ferrer

Naples, Florida: 3 August 2020 – It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Chef Claudio Ferrer.

As a Chef, Educator, Judge and Worldchefs Continental Director of the Americas, Claudio inspired chefs and culinary students around the globe with his kindness, mentorship, support and humor. He was a great friend to all, a proud family man and an accomplished Chef.

Chef Claudio was well known for his big heart and passionate dedication to Worldchefs, the American Culinary Federation and Culinary Arts. He was devoted to preserving and promoting Latin American culture, its authentic flavours and heritage cuisines, and most of all its people. 

Worldchefs would like to convey our sincerest condolences to Claudio’s family and may we all find warmth and comfort in the wonderful memories shared together throughout the years.
