Event Description

Dear Fellow Culinarians,

It is my great honor to host and chair the second American Culinary Federation Schenectady County Community College Spring Culinary Classic. This two day competition promises to be a wonderful weekend to display culinary talent amongst some of the best chefs in the country. We have pulled out all the stops and have opened a large number of categories for all of you to compete in.

o Contemporary W – Cyprus Hazelnut Honey Competition
The Cyprus Embassy has decided to open a Contemporary category in which the professional chef must feature their hazelnut honey. The chef may present any contemporary category but the honey must be a featured ingredient. If you wish to enter this category please call me ASAP (Christopher Tanner) so that I may send you a sample of the honey to practice with and for you to use for your dish. There will be additional honey on hand the day of the competition. The winner’s entry will be featured on the Cyprus Government’s website and the following prizes will be awarded.
• 1st Prize $1,000
• 2nd Prize $600
• 3rd Prize $400

For more in-depth information for each category check out the ACF Competition Manual at www.acfchefs.org and go to “resources” and then go to the “forms and applications” heading and you will find the manual toward the bottom of the list of forms.
