ACF Culinary Team USA shares menu at exclusive dinner
Recently, ACF Culinary Team USA got out of the practice kitchen and into a working kitchen together to host a fundraiser at Myers Park Country Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. The team served their food to 80 diners who were eager to learn more about culinary competitions and be a part of a unique dining experience.
“As we develop our menu, we will be using these dishes for a competition session at the ‘culinary Olympics,’ says Joseph Leonardi, CEC, team manager. “Guests of our fundraiser events will experience looks and tastes of the very menu that we are going to use to compete against 55 other nations in Germany in 2016.”
The seven course dinner was a compilation of dishes team members have been perfecting as they work toward a final menu for the “culinary Olympics” in Erfurt, Germany, October 2016. In addition, attendees were introduced to delicious Wisconsin cheese from the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, one of the team’s sponsors.
