Welcome and thank you for visiting our web site. The ACF Philadelphia is the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Culinary Federation. We are very active in Philadelphia and the five counties that surround it. We have over 200 chefs, Sous chefs, cooks and apprentices as members.
Spring has come and almost feels that it has gone already.
I would like to that everyone at Montgomery County Community College for hosting our April general and sharing with us their new program and great food. Their facility is beautiful and we wish all of you the best of luck.
Please don't forget about our culinary competition coming up on May 18 and 19. We are looking forward on a big turn out.
Please remember to cast your votes for the National Election for Chef Tom Macrina and Chef Bill Tillinghast. Every single vote member vote is appreciated so log onto www.acfchefs.org starting May 6 - May 27 to vote.
I would like to say a "special thanks" to Cindy McClure for a great job with our Annual ACF Philly Cooks event and our friends at the Desmond Hotel (another year of a job well done) , the Home of the Sparrow and Women in Motion for their support in ticket sales and printing of our program. So far, this year was the best year yet, and it just keeps getting better. This was our 4th year and over 60% of our vendors have been with us since conception. Their support of our chapter each year makes all the difference in the total outcome. The auction items were a huge success and a special thank you to the Decorating Den for their donation of the cast iron, tile top table (retail value of over $1,500). Next year we are looking to change the name if anyone has an ideas please e-mail Cindy or myself.
Our next general meeting will be on May 14th at the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College PM. On June 15th, we will be volunteering our services again to the Home of the Sparrow. We need volunteers. Thanks and have a great Day!!
This years Golf Outing, Monday, August 5th will be sponsored by Deerfield Country Club hosted by Chef Paul O'Toole, CEC AAC. Thank you Chef Paul for the support!
