Culinary Federation Winnipeg held a meet and greet on Wednesday, March 20 at Maples Collegiate Commons. The event was attended by Chef and Young Chef members as well as students from culinary schools like Maples, Tec Voc and Red River College. There was a chance to hear about the upcoming local and national initiatives and a number of competitions and activities that are planned for the next few months. The evening gave us a chance to get on the same page for the national conference to be held in Edmonton at the end of May. We welcomed new board members to our association as well as a number of new young chef members. We are happy to have Chef Steven Strecker (Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology) and Chef Richard Duncan ( Canada Life Centre) and associate Lyndsay Kapkey (Perfect Perogy) join us as new members of our executive board. A big Thank-you to Chef Jeff Bilous and the Students of Maples Collegiate for hosting the event.
