It’s the middle of February and past the New Year, New Me stuff yet for the ACFAZ, it continues. The first meeting of the year, and with the new board happened January 13th at Agave Farms and yes, it was a good turn out with many reasons to get excited about the new year for the association. Pictures of that event are below.
Agave Farms is a great place to hold an event, get involved with a community garden, but also a great place to purchase plants as well. I was impressed with their selection of roses. Roses grow very well in Arizona yet the colors of roses offered at local retail stores are very limited. Only one color is what I found last year.
The new board election confirmed at the November 4th meeting held at Southwest Gas. Below are pictures from that event, and here is a list of the new ACFAZ Board of Directors.
Fast forward to February again, much follow up happening and have to get into blogging again and getting the newsletter(s) fired up too. There is also chapter information I need to share too, and working on that too. You can see some of that on the ACFAZ.org website and on the ACFAZ Facebook page.
The next ACFAZ meeting is March 9th at Barry Goldwater High School in the school’s restaurant, Avenue 27, which is also their culinary arts department.
Here’s information about this event.
“On March 9th, ACF Chef’s Association of Arizona welcomes Culinary Love, a local collective of chefs promoting wellness in the hospitality industry.
Culinary Love believes we are “an industry in need” of supporting the individuals who give so much of themselves in kitchens and dining rooms across all venues of foodservice. The meeting will feature a panel discussion with ACF and Culinary Love members.
