Welcome to the Michigan Chefs de Cuisine!


The online classes will be a fun and personal way to connect to other home chefs and gain real-time access to Certified Executive Chefs while supporting a fund designed to get much needed money into the hands of Detroit Area restaurant owners and their staff who have been decimated by the pandemic restrictions through NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN. 100% of donations (less admin. fees not to exceed 10% of donations) will go directly to the local hard working restaurant owners and their staff who have been either furloughed or have reduced hours or tips due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. There will be 3 tiers of participation, based on individual donation amounts. $25.00 or more will provide a link to the online cooking presentation, $200.00 or more will provide a link to the online cooking presentation as well as a basket of ingredients needed to participate in cooking, and a $250.00 or more donation will include the prior plus a bottle of wine selected by the Chefs presenting the class.

"Over the last 20 years I can’t thank the American Culinary Federation enough for all the opportunities they have provided me. Every job I have gotten was from networking with individuals at various chapter meetings. My confidence from ACF mentors has enabled me to excel in some of the highest volume banquet center around the world. Some highlights of my carrier that ACF networking provided was opening a restaurant and brew pub, participating at the White House with Chef Move to Schools and participating in events with food network star while volunteering with Share our Strength. I would highly recommend getting involved."
