Message from the President

Greetings my fellow Culinarians, I Hope everyone had a successful Easter Brunch and also had time to spend with all of your families . As the spring is quickly moving into summer we have a few events coming up. For those interested please have the ACF Continuing Education/Travel Scholarship form submitted to me by April 23rd. I will announce the recipient on April 24th at our April Meeting. Cook, Craft and Create will be Held at the Walt Disney resort in Orlando FL from July 9-13th.
 
The ACF Golf Tournament is July 17th at Millwood and will be chaired by Jason Pooker. We are looking for volunteers interested in helping with the silent auction.
Our May Meeting will be hosted at the Oasis Hotel and Convention Center. It will be on May 22nd one week early due to the last Monday falling on Memorial Day. I also wanted to say thank you to Edgewood Creamery for an outstanding meeting last month. This was a well-attended meeting with a lot of first time high school and college dulinary arts students attending. The meeting was very educational about milk and cheese production. Edgewood was gracious enough to give away some great door prizes.
 
At the March meeting I was pleased to announce a partnership with the Missouri Restaurant Association. We will host a trivia night on September 23rd at the Oasis Convention Center in the Grand Ballroom. All proceeds will be split between our two organizations. We will also be giving away a joint scholarship at the MRA Annual Golden Fork awards In January 2018.
 
I hope to see you all Monday April 24th at Barley Wheat and Rye Social House for our April meeting, hosted by C and C Produce.
 
Cheers,
