Calling all Professional Chefs

The Knowledge Bowl Team
Needs your Help

February 7, 2015
9 am to 12 pm

Le Cordon Bleu St. Louis
7898 Veterans Memorial Parkway
St Peters, MO 63376

The Knowledge Bowl Team is looking to hold a scrimmage between themselves and any professional chefs in the area. We need anywhere from 8 to 12 chefs to help with this event. The professional chefs will make up one or two different teams, taking on our current 2015 Knowledge Bowl Team. Anyone can volunteer for this event: Teachers, Executives, General Managers, Sous Chefs and etc.

We could really use your help.

The current Knowledge Bowl Team has never competed in competition and could use all the help we can give them. This will give the current students of the Knowledge Bowl Team much needed practice in a real-life competition setting. If you can come and compete against our students, please call or email Coach Heather Roehl at:

314-210-7030
hroehl@sbcglobal.net

Once you have decided to volunteer, we will send out some guidelines and rules for how a Knowledge Bowl scrimmage will take place. This will help for anyone that will be new to Knowledge Bowl Game.

ACF Central Regional Culinary Salon

March 6-7, 2015

Pulaski Technical College
Little Rock, AR

 


This year, the ACF is shaking up their annual Regional Conferences. Rather than holding separate conferences for each of the 4 regions, in 2015 they will be consolidating them into two mega-regional conferences, calling them ChefConnect. However, they needed to retain the regional competitions. So the regional competitions will be held separately from the ChefConnect conferences.

For the ACF Central Region, the Culinary Salon will be held in Little Rock on March 6th and 7th, 2015. The ACF Competitions being held are:

  • ACF U.S.A.'s Chef of the Year - sponsored by: Unilever Food Solutions
  • ACF Pastry Chef of the Year - sponsored by: Plugrá® European-Style Butter
  • ACF Student Chef of the Year - sponsored by: Custom Culinary, Inc.
  • ACF Student Team Divisional Competition - sponsored by Vitamix® Corporation

Change in Credit Card Processing Procedures

The Chefs de Cuisine website will no longer accept credit card payments for meetings and special events, as the processing fees used by the website processing provider were climbing. However, we will continue to accept credit card payments at the door for each event, using a moble card reader that has lower processing fees. For all future events, please bring your payment (credit card, cash, or check) with you to the event. Thank you for your understanding.
