Some of most seasoned and skilled chefs from around the U.S. will gather at Schoolcraft College to take the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Certified Master Chef (CMC) exam Sept. 30 through Oct 7. The ultimate test of culinary skill, knowledge and creativity, the exam will take place and will showcase the talents of 12 culinarians seeking the title of CMC, the highest level of certification in the U.S. that a chef can receive.
The ACF Certified Master Chef designation currently belongs to just 65 CMCs and 10 Certified Master Pastry Chefs (CMPCs). To apply for the exam, candidates must already be a Certified Executive Chef or Certified Culinary Educator, provide two letters of recommendation from current CMCs or CMPCs, and have completed education courses on sanitation and food safety, management, cost management and wine.
