Besides, during this interval, GSA would be able to focus on a more ambitious project namely Vietnamese Food Lovers (see more at here: website and Fanpage This is a forum for foodies and culinary experts who are fond of Vietnamese cuisine. The debut also strengthens the organizer’s attempt to introduce and promote Vietnamese cuisine and culture to local and international friends.

Also, the Awards launched its eponymous professional chef’s club (GSA Chef’s Club) with more than 100 members who used to be 15 finalists of previous editions, culinary experts and prestigious chefs nationwide. Since its inauguration, the Chef’s Club has succeeded hosting professional workshops with multiple topics: Euro-Asia Cuisine, Wine & Dine, etc.

On the way to revamp this reputable competition, the organizer came across both objective and subjective obstacles. Therefore, the Golden Spoon Awards 2018 cannot return at full strength to meet the community’s expectation. Thanks to a longer interval, the GSA organizer commits to broader publicity for the Chef’s Club and participation in more culinary events to promote the national food heritage to the world.

On behalf of the organizer, we look forward to your continued companionship, support and kind understanding in order for us to achieve more with the one-and-only mission: Vietnam to be “Kitchen of the World”.
