Busy Busy Month!!

December 12, 2011

Hello Everyone!  Back again from our travels and with the holiday season added to the mix, this past month has been quite full!!

In November we traveled back down to Jumby Bay ,a 300-acre private Caribbean island in Antigua, for some training to their Hospitality staff. 11 Food and Beverage Managers each received 16 hours of ServSafe Training for a total of 176 hours and 81 Food and Beverage Team Members each received 3 hours of Food Handlers Training for a total of 243 hours.  Chef Matthew and I were treated like royalty.  I want to send out a special thanks to Leisa McDonald, Executive Chef Yann Giacomoni,  Executive Sous Chef Juan Bochenski and the entire Jumby Bay Staff.

This visit was definitely booked solid with some serious class time and everyone was a joy to spend the week with.  As always, we’re looking forward to our next visit with them as they continue to keep their team trained and compliant with all areas of safe food handling and sanitation.

Then it was back to the States for a circuit around the county schools as a guest speaker to the Culinary Technical Classes.  There are a lot of promising Chefs coming out of those programs and it’s so exciting to be a part of their education.

Many of the students participated in a day of helping the less fortunate when we went back to the Christian Care Center to prepare some great food for their daily meal at their Men’s Center.  All are welcome as they open their doors to bring a hot meal to anyone in need.

Still off and running with a few more trips planned to visit our always accommodating and gracious hosts in the beautiful Caribbean Islands.  More updates coming soon!!

To all of you and yours, enjoy this beautiful, blessed and wonderful time of year!!
