ACAC Dean Bruno Cardone about receiving the Worldchefs Recognition
How do you feel about being officially recognized by Worldchefs?
The ACAC’s faculty and the entire team are very proud and delighted to receive the Recognition of Quality Culinary Education certification and obtain such positive feedback from the Worldchefs experts. It is a great motivation to continue delivering the best culinary training in terms of excellence, practice and professionalism that reflects the contemporary culinary industry and current trends.
Why was it important for you to join this network and seek recognition?
Being a WACS-certified academy and member of this network verifies that we are skillfully preparing the next generation of culinary professionals and shows potential employers that our students have gained a certain set of skills and knowledge which differentiates them in the industry.
What are your expectations in terms of future collaboration with WACS?
Hospitality is one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing industries. Today it ranks as the largest employer in the world, representing 1 in every 10 jobs. Yet, employment in the industry can be a challenge for businesses and workers alike. Joining the World Association of Chefs Societies will provide us with international visibility and a gateway to global culinary networking opportunities such as the landmark biennial Worldchefs Congress and Expo, for example. WACS also runs the prestigious Global Chef Challenge which is a great learning opportunity and experience for ACAC faculty and students to participate in.
