A Great Team Effort!
Hello, Chefs & Culinarians,
We are home from Atlanta after a great SE Regional Conference.
We started off on day one with Central Florida Chapter being named the SE Chapter of the Year. A HUGE thanks to Past President Joe Alfano for his leadership last year to reach this goal! Also a very special thank you and kudos to our Marketing Director, Lynda Gail Alfano, for putting together an outstanding 52-page application for the award. Hard to top that!
Chef Dawn Viola presented her Holistic Cooking seminar — “Food as Medicine” — to a full house of over 75 Chefs. Congratulations, Dawn!
Last but certainly not least, to put the icing on the cake, Chef Kathleen Vossenberg fro Le Cordon Bleu was selected as the SE Chef Educator of the Year. Congratulations to you, Kathleen!!
Thanks again to everyone involved in these successes for our chapter. Now, it’s on to Phoenix in July for the ACF National Convention — and many more challenges ahead!
See you at the next chapter meeting!
