CCKC Chefs Honored

Hey, we don’t fool around when it comes to enlisting the best and the brightest culinary instructors in the business!

Sunday night, the Greater Kansas City Chefs Association (a Chapter of The American Culinary Foundation) named Chef Jim Tinkham as its 2015 Chef Of The Year.  

Also honored as Nominees For Chef Of The Year were Chef Richard McPeake and Chef Jesse Vega.  ALL THREE CHEFS teach regularly with us at The Culinary Center of Kansas City and we couldn’t be prouder of them!  

You can get the benefit of their experience by taking a class taught by them.  Click here for our calendar and simply filter by the Instructor’s name for a list of cooking classes currently offered by each of these three amazing Chefs.  

Congrats to our CCKC Chefs!
