There are many American Culinary Federation chapters across the state of Michigan. However, in the heart of southeastern Michigan, there is a very special chapter. The Michigan Chefs de Cuisine Association was founded in 1970 by Master Chef Milos Cihelka, CMC, AAC, HGT, whose vision it was to create one of the most prestigious professional associations in the nation. The chapter consists of about 450 members.
