Culinary Team USA

April 30, 2009

Why hasn’t the United States Army Culinary Arts Team (USACAT) been under the ACF National Team umbrella in past Olympic and World Cup years?

  1. This question is perhaps best answered by our current administration. One possibility is the inability to financially support all the Teams at that time.

    With this being said, we need a major overhaul of the current teams, which include but is not limited to a change in philosophies. At the Southeast Regional Conference, last year in Williamsburg, VA, I made a request (with Joe Aiello present) of Chef Kinsella that he allow the next elected President to appoint a new team manager, of course with his assistance.

    Chef Kinsella agreed that he would do this; that was in February of 2008. Now, it is my understanding that (prior to this election), he plans to name the new team manager, separate the team from the ACF, and make a separate foundation. If he is successful, this NOT only will be detrimental to the team, but will pull the team further away from the members.
