Culinary Leadership Council

Chefs and culinarian leaders from all segments across the country make up the Culinary Leadership Council, a foody think tank where innovation happens and new trends begin.

Culinary Leadership Council Pillars

People

Culinarians are creatives and are not content to keep using yesterday’s recipes. We are driven to find better, more sustainable processes, healthier choices and create more engaging experiences through food.

Purpose

By coming together regularly, sharing our learnings and best practices, we inspire each other to think bigger and continually reshape our culinary future and our customer’s experience.

Pertinence

To be a leader in culinary innovation means to be relevant and aware of what our customers want. Our passion for food and service keep us close to the marketplace so we are setting trends, not following.
