For more than 20 years The Club Chefs of Westchester has helped define culinary experiences in private clubs throughout the greater metropolitan New York area.

With monthly meetings, our members enjoy educational seminars, product and technique demonstrations and lively discussions about current trends and issues facing the Club Chef on a daily basis. All of this and some exceptionally prepared food by fellow member chefs.

Members also enjoy daylong culinary trips and filed trips to local dairies, farms, smokehouses, wineries and more. The highlight for many is our annual culinary trip which has included France, Portugal, Spain, Bologna, Naples,Peru, Ireland and England, not to mention California and the Pacific Northwest.

As members of Club Chefs of Westchester we are also in a great position to give back to our local communities. We raise funds for several worthwhile organizations including POTS and Jansen Hospice . We also host our Annual Golf Outing which is in honor of our friend and fellow chef Christopher Gasse, we donate all proceeds to the Chris Gasse Family Education Fund. We also participate in the Annual CMAA Vendor Show as well as our Annual Holiday party and the Chef/Spouse Dinner in June.

As well as dealing with Chef related issues we also have numerous events in conjunction with Club Managers from the local chapter of CMAA. We work closely with the CMAA to provide better opportunities for growth among chefs and their managers.

We have accomplished a lot over our first twenty plus years and we look to continue to grow and learn and contribute to our industry in the future. We are always looking for new members and fresh ideas and energy to help drive us forward to a greater and brighter future in the Club Industry.

From the President

I would like to invite you to join our association and become part of this ever growing and evolving group of profession chefs. We are dedicated to learning and expanding our knowledge in every aspect of the culinary business. We focus on Clubs and club related issues and concerns. We all share the common goal of providing the best possible dining experience to our members by ensuring we are staying current with trends, dietary and allergy issues and health department regulations. We try to offer as much training and guidance as possible to our members so they can in turn train their staff to ensure the happiness, safety and well being of each member at their Club.

I look forward to welcoming you to our group.
