Competitions

Competitions play a vital role in culinary arts as they continually raise the standards of culinary excellence. There is no better way for a culinarian to hone their craft than by putting their skills and knowledge to the test in a competitive format.

Participation in ACF approved competitions will also earn you continuing education hours for ACF certification.

The WSCA hosts ACF sanctioned competitions on a regular basis and also enjoys hosting local culinary competitions to promote the Washington Culinary scene.

Each year schools from around the country participate in the Baron H. Galand Culinary Knowledge Bowl (jeopardy of the culinary arts!). Schools compete on a regional level to gain the chance to compete nationally at the ACF National Convention. If your school is interested in competing,  click here for more information.
