Also, the numbers of the associations who act in this field are increasing day by day. I suggest that everybody who deals with culinary and food culture should cooperate with each other to enable these actions to be continued in modern way. We, as those five associations who realised this requirement, decided to come together and established the All Cooks Federation (TAF).
