The 2018 CAFE (Center for the Advancement of Foodservice Education) Leadership conference in Milwaukee this month, was an extremely rewarding and impactful conference. I am extremely appreciative to everyone involved in selecting me as the 2018 Educator of the Year Award recipient. Many of us in the food industry have attended many food conferences but CAFE always stands out. I had a chance to meet so many amazing people that are not only passionate about food and sustainability like myself but are culinary educators as well as. Being acknowledged for my efforts in food innovations, professional commitment, professional development and my leadership amongst such talented chefs and culinary educators was truly amazing. Thank you!
