Bite of Apprentice 2022


Monday, OCTOBER 24th, 2022 @ Bell harbor Conference Center

Wow, “The Bite of Apprentice” turned out great. Lots of tasty bites and creativity. It was wonderful to see a lot of friends, families, and guests. The apprentices did a super job showcasing their individual “Bites.” Watching them explaining the composition of their Bite was a joy.

I appreciate All the volunteers that helped make the event an enormous success. Special thanks to our Apprentice Chair, Chef Tony Parker CEC AAC, for organizing the event, to Chef Diana Prine CEC for collaborating with our apprentice team and Scott McLean CEC for helping facilitate the beverages and awards. Of course, we cannot forget the front desk and helping with tickets and registration: Thanks to Michael Ventura, Jeff Pratt, and Erick Swenson CCC for their help.  It takes a lot of hours of communication and meetings to make this work. Thanks again to all those who participated  for making this event an ENORMOUS success.
