What is a Master Chef

A Master Chef exhibits the finest culinary talent, innovative skill, and exemplary craft. TOMC chefs have won James Beard Foundation awards, Food & Wine's Best New Chef, and many more awards and honors.

A Certified Master Chef is presented by the American Culinary Federation (ACF), and is the highest level of certification for a chef. Chef Rich Rosendale, a featured chef of TOMC, is one of only 68 CMCs in the nation.
