Dear Fellow Club Chefs,
I hope that this newsletter finds all of you well now that we are finally at a slower time in our seasons. We are currently working on our education schedule for the rest of the year. If anyone has any suggestions please direct them to Lenny Phillips our Education Chairman. I am also happy to announce that Mike Dolan has agreed to be our new Membership Chairman. Many thanks to all who have worked so hard to make us a GREAT organization.
I would like to thank General Manager Az-dine Boucetta and Executive Chef Fay Reyes and her entire staff, as well as Argentine Asados Chefs James and Diego for an amazing BBQ dinner at The Mill River Club. The two different styles of BBQ were amazing. Thanks Blake for helping us on this one.
