Chefs de Cuisine of San Diego and student culinarians.
WHAT: The Chefs de Cuisine Association of San Diego inducted 31 student culinarians at its October 2012 monthly meeting.
WHY: The Chefs de Cuisine will be hosting different charity and special events during the year that require student culinarians to help with food prep and maintain professional standards in a busy public atmosphere. Earning their membership in the Chefs de Cuisine Association through in-kind service, the students gain practical resume-building experience while boosting the mission and energy of the 501(c)3 non-profit Chefs de Cuisine Association.
WHO: With a mission to promote cuisine and offer professional educational opportunities for its member chefs, the Chefs de Cuisine Association of San Diego was founded in 1961, making it the oldest affiliate of the American Culinary Federation (ACF) in the San Diego region.
The Chefs de Cuisine Association offers educational programs, competitions and events for professional chefs and culinary students, and works with the national ACF to offer professional certification exams.
The Chefs de Cuisine also supports an Explorer Post, the first in the nation, for youth aged 14-20 to explore culinary careers.
