The National Association for Catering and Events - Southern Wisconsin Chapter
and the Milwaukee Chapter of the American Culinary Federation invite you to join us
for a dynamic joint meeting at South Second on Monday August 29th, 2016.

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 Société Culinaire Philanthropique, the Vatel Club and the Chefs de Cuisine Association of America. They are an organization based on promoting the professional image of American chefs worldwide through education of culinarians at all levels.

 At this meeting we will experience the food of various restaurants and their knowledge in executing stations and a menu that adapts to the flow of your event. Experience a heavy hors d’oeuvre style reception followed by a panel of speakers sharing their insight on collaborating with the back-of-house team to pull off an event that flows and menu that shares the vision of your event.



Attendees are in for a treat as members of the ACF team up with our fellow NACE
members to create appetizers and displays for our cocktail hour,
vying for your votes!  This is an event you won't want to miss!
