Foodservice News and the American Culinary Federation—Minneapolis Chapter have had a long relationship. Why? Its membership numbers in the hundreds, and in its ranks are restaurant, hotel, corporate, country club and instructor chefs. There is not another organization that brings together that breadth of knowledge each month.
The American Culinary Federation Minneapolis Chefs Chapter (ACF) and Partnership Resources, Inc. (PRI) are proud to present the Second Annual Taste of Art, an event bringing the artistic talents of these two organizations together for an evening of incredible food and beautiful art in a festive and fun atmosphere. Proceeds from the event will go to the ACF’s culinary scholarship fund and PRI programming. PRI serves adults with developmental disabilities and provides supported employment, cultural enrichment, recreation, and volunteering opportunities to its clients. In addition to the ACF talents more & more Guest Chefs are suiting this worthwhile event.
John Schumacher is this year’s honorary guest chef and auctioneer. Schumacher is a well-known chef, author of eight cookbooks, licensed auctioneer. He and his wife, Kathleen, own and operate Schumacher’s Hotel and Grill 212 in New Prague.
