A note of interest for our Chef de Cuisine Certified (CCC) Members, did you know that you can use your CCC to receive the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Certified Executive Chef (CEC)? There is a simple transferrable process. A copy of your Canadian Chef de Cuisine and the application and fee is all that is required to earn the CEC. If you are a member of the ACF, the cost is $50.00, and for non-ACF members, the cost is $75.00.If you are interested, please reach out to Kivi Hermans, Culinary Programs Specialist, at the ACF!
