National Chefs Move to Schools Day will be held May 8th, 2015

Did you know that you can join in the fight against childhood obesity by partnering with schools? Chefs are in a unique position to use their creativity and culinary expertise to get children and communities excited about eating healthy foods. Whether it is only 30 minutes or an hour, we are inviting chefs across the country to volunteer at a school in their community on this special day.

Culinary art

posted in: General | 0

Culinary art, where “culinary” means “related to cooking“, is the art of the preparation, cooking and presentation of food, usually in the form of meals. People working in this field – especially in establishments such as restaurants – are commonly called “chefs” or “cooks“, although, at its most general, the terms “culinary artist” and “culinarian” are also used. Table manners (“the table arts”) are sometimes referred to as a culinary art.
