Best Chefs of Louisiana 2013 Was a Success!

Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for all of your efforts last night. The 2013 Best Chefs of Louisiana event would not have been possible without your care, professionalism, creativity, enthusiasm, and support for the hospitality industry, the ACFNO, and the children of Children's Hospital and the International School of Louisiana.

All of us at the ACFNO are touched by your generosity and spirit as we continue to serve our colleagues, our calling, and our beloved State of Louisiana.

We will soon be posting pictures of the wonderful gala.

To All, Many Continued Blessings,
