Kyle & Emily are OK, but have lost just about everything. Chef Emily's parents have set up a fundraising page to help them both rebuild their lives, and to also help others in need that are on the island.We encourage every member to send well wishes and support during this difficult time for them.

As we are in the middle of what presumably is the busiest time of the year, we'd like to just stop, and take a moment to recognize our President, Chef Nancy L. Geddes, C.E.C, A.A.C., C.D.M., C.F.P.P.
This week she was officially inducted into the American Culinary Federation's American Academy of Chefs. We would like to congratulate you, Chef Nancy, on such a momentous achievement.
For those of you not familiar with the American Academy of Chefs, it is an honor society the American Culinary Federation created to distinguish its' most accomplished Chefs within our organization. There are seven mandatory requirements, and then a chef has to complete 10-22 elective attainable goals. This is no easy task and takes a minimum of 15 years to achieve. Only a small handful of chefs are inducted, and must be nominated by two other academy members.
Read Chef Geddes' report on the ACF National Conference, held July 9th through July 13th in Orlando, Florida.
