2022 President's Gala & Chef of the Year Dinner

Thank you for your support!

What an amazing evening we shared with you at our 2022 President’s Gala & Chef of the Year Awards dinner, as we proudly honored our Chef of the Year, Bert Cutino, CEC, AAC, HBOT, HOF.
On behalf of the American Culinary Federation, Monterey Bay Chapter, I would like to thank the generous support given by our Gold, Silver, & Bronze sponsors, wine sponsor, business partners and purveyors, as well as our local businesses that donated items to our auctions. 
I would also like to thank our guests that donated to the 100% tax-deductible Bert P. Cutino Professional Chef Scholarship Fund. Your generous contributions allow our chapter to sustain our primary mission of education for cooks and chefs.
Thank you to the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa. The success of this event would not be possible without their dedicated team of professionals, from the Catering Director to the dishwasher and all the employees in between.
Thank you to our Master of Ceremonies, David Armanasco, for your flair and abilities to make our evening more enjoyable.
Thank you to the members of our armed forces serving in the magnificent Color Guard at the start of our evening, accompanied by the singing of our National Anthem, sung by Ashley Wilson.
Thank you to our ACF Monterey Bay Chapter Board & Committee Members 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. We hope to see you at our next event.
At your service…
Chef Jacques Wilson, CEC, AAC, President
