ACF_HPSt. Augustine, Fl - The American Culinary Federation, Inc. (ACF) honored chefs, culinary industry professionals and foodservice establishments at the 2012 ACF National Convention held at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando recently.

More than 1,000 chefs, cooks, students and foodservice professionals attended the annual event in Orlando. The convention provided attendees with opportunities to advance their professional development and enhance their culinary skills through informative workshops and seminars, cutting-edge demonstrations, a trade show featuring more than 100 exhibitors, national competitions and ACF’s annual national awards.

This year’s guest presenters included Food Network’s Robert Irvine in an interactive demonstration about maintaining nutrition and presentation in every dish while tackling the impossible. Culinary legend Paul Prudhomme, HAAC, HHOF, inspired chefs with a one-of-a-kind presentation where he discussed his career successes, challenges and motivations. Iron Chef Cat Cora also made a special appearance at the convention, emphasizing to attendees what it means to be a chef. On July 17, ACF adopted the “Feed the Planet” declaration established by the World Association of Chefs Societies and the city of Daejeon, South Korea, and joined in the worldwide chefs’ initiative. Then, Rick Moonen, an early supporter of sustainability, motivated guests to understand the chef’s role in feeding the world.
