Springtime again.

Hello everyone,

It has been awhile since our last post, and there has been quite a bit happening between then and now. We had a culinary competition for students in March, and it was a fun and interesting time for all. Every Friday in March, we had student teams compete in a "iron chef" meets "top chef" sort of way with different meals and secret ingredients for students in a single elimination tournament. Each Friday students as well as family and friends of those competing attended watching and rooting on those competing. The event was a success and we look forward to it becoming a recurring event for our students. The Chef's Academy Sports and Activities Club organized the event.
The Chef's Academy Sports and Activities Club has their next event in the works as well, as we are pleased to announce The Chef's Academy Sports and Activities Club student barbecue contest. The contest is open to students of The Chef's Academy, Ivy Tech's culinary program, and Art Institute's culinary students. The barbecue competition will be held on Friday June 12, 2009. For more information on this event email The Chef's Academy Sports and Activities club at
The Chef's Academy also held an open house on Friday, April 3rd. We were happy to have approximately 50 prospective students attend the open house and answer questions they had regarding The Chef's Academy and our programs. All of our student clubs were represented as well as a number of our Chef Faculty and current students were on hand preparing food and answering the questions of attendees. The Chef's Academy would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work that made the event fun and successful at reaching out to our future students.
Things to be on the lookout for:
Keep your eye's peeled as there are new videos that will be making their way to youtube and our social networking sites in the near future. A spotlight on Chef Brandon Hamilton will be released soon allowing you to get the prospective from a graduate who was already an Executive Chef before entering our culinary program. There will also be some spotlights hitting the web to feature our Chef Instructors as well. If you have questions you would like to ask a Chef Instructor you can forward those to and we will make see that a chef answers the questions in the spotlight videos!
