2019 President's Gala & Chef of the Year Dinner

Thank you for your support!

What an amazing evening we shared with you at our 2019 President’s Gala & Chef of the Year Awards dinner, as we proudly honored our Chef of the Year, Estevan Jimenez from Rancho Cielo’s Drummond Culinary Academy, as well as our Purveyor of the Year, Arroyo Seco Winegrowers Association.

On behalf of the American Culinary Federation, Monterey Bay Chapter, I would like to thank the generous support given by our 4-star & 3-star table sponsors, wine sponsor, major sponsors, as well as our local businesses that donated items to our auctions.

I would also like to thank our guests that donated their 100% tax-deductible paddle raise for our Marc H. Vedrines Culinary Fund. Your generous contributions allow our chapter to continue our mission in providing much-needed resources for our next generation of chefs.

Thank you to the InterContinental The Clement Monterey, Executive Chef Matthew Bolton, banquet and hotel staff for your culinary and service excellence.

Thank you to our ACF Monterey Bay Chapter Board & Committee Members and our volunteers, without all of your hard work, tireless support, and donations, this event would not have happened.

Lastly, thank you to all of you, our guests, for sharing the evening with us, I look forward to seeing you at our 2020 Presidents Gala and Chef of the Year Dinner on Sunday, June 7th, 2020 at the InterContinental The Clement Monterey, California.

With gratitude,

Chef Soerke Peters, President
