A Culinary Competition


meal examplesLast month, nine chefs from Independence Village and our sister company StoryPoint competed in the American Culinary Federation Competition held at Dorsey Culinary School in Pontiac. Out of the 80 chefs that participated, our nine were the only ones from the senior industry.

Two Regional Chefs along with Grand Ledge, Midland, Rockford and Portage chefs were judged by a panel that included two Certified Master Chefs (only 60 in the Country) as well as the President of the American Culinary Federation (pictured with our team below).

All nine of our chefs took home medals, four silver and five bronze. Our culinary team continues to inspire and empower in and outside of our communities furthering our purpose and spreading our message.
