I grew up in a small mountain village called Unteraegeri in Swizterland, cold and rarely sunny in my days. I had to go to school and started my culinary education on my 16th birthday in the best place in my province. Currently I work as Master Trainer at the Culinary Training Centres in Egypt (6th of October and Luxor) under the umbrella of the Egyptian Tourism Federation and the Minister of Tourism. I am also the Founder and President of the Egyptian Chefs Association and Assistant Continental Director, Middle East and Africa for the World Association of Chef Societies. My two real hobbies, besides squash and an occasional a game of golf, is, of course, off-road driving in the Egyptian desert.


Chef Markus Iten is the Founder and Honorary President of the Egyptian Chefs Association and is the representative of education of the World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) for the Middle East & Africa region. Chef Iten is a Chef Consultant and Trainer with over 40 years of experience in food preparation and management of commercial kitchens.
