On this page you will not only find a link to the ACF’s home page but also a bit about who they are. I joined the ACF on 08/31/2010 and any time I update my activity with them or make a post in rearguards to my activities with the ACF I will post it under the “ACF” category.

“The Authority on Cooking in America”

The American Culinary Federation, Inc. (ACF), a professional, organization for chefs and cooks, was founded in 1929 in New York city by three chefs’ organizations: the Societe Culinaire Philanthropique, the Vatel Club and the Chefs de Cuisine Association of America. Since our inception, little has changed in our principal goals. We are an organization based on promoting the professional image of American chefs worldwide through education of culinarians at all levels.

In 1976, ACF forever changed the culinary industry by elevating the position of the executive chef from service status to the professional category in the U.S. Department of Labor’s Dictionary of Official Titles.

Since this change, the culinary industry and our organization have grown tremendously. In fact, ACF is the largest professional chefs organization in North America. We are made up of more than 20,000 members that belong to more than 225 chapters in four regions across the U.S. Today, the ACF provides accredited educational programs, certifications, competitions and networking designed to enhance professional growth for all current and future chefs and pastry chefs, our mission.

We offer culinary competitions, certification, national apprenticeship program, regional and national events, magazines and much more to help foster the growth of professional chefs and the food service industry.
