has teamed up with the American Culinary Federation
The ACF was started in 1929 and now has more than 20,000 members. ACF is the culinary leader in offering educational resources, training, apprenticeship and programmatic accreditation designed to enhance professional growth for all current and future chefs and pastry chefs. In addition, ACF operates the most comprehensive certification program for chefs in the United States. Furthermore, this organization is home to ACF Culinary Team USA, the official representative for the United States in major international culinary competitions, and to the Chef & Child Foundation, founded in 1989 to promote proper nutrition in children and combat childhood obesity.
The American Culinary Federation provides accredited educational programs, certifications, competitions and networking designed to enhance professional growth for all current and future chefs and pastry chefs. Their vision is to be the leader in professional and personal development for the culinary community, while promoting current culinary techniques and preserving the history and skills of our craft.
Red Onion Restaurants desires to be a part of training the next generations of chefs, creating a culinary community that works together to provide great dining experiences for our locale as a whole. We realize that if talent is confined, eventually the community around us will suffer. In combining talents and resources to train the next generation, as well as provide education for our guests, we will all succeed in laying the foundation of great food for years to come.
This is why the Red Onion has been a member of the ACF for over a year now and is working to bring the benefits of this cooperative and educational approach to our own neighborhood. So foodies, chefs, or restaurateurs, come join us and be a part of this community. Let’s bring out the best in all of us!
