PHILADELPHIA -- Aramark said 18 of its chefs recently graduated from the ProChef certification program at The Culinary Institute of America. These chefs create the menus for and serve colleges, universities and preparatory schools across the United States and Canada, and join the 250 Aramark chefs who have already received their ProChef certification.

The CIA ProChef Certification is a three-tiered, comprehensive professional development and culinary proficiency program that measures core culinary, managerial and financial acumen, including a chef's skill in flavor development, proper cooking methods, dish profile authenticity, plating, use of ingredients and sanitation.

 "These chefs will use what they've learned to improve culinary operations and provide training to their staff, so they can deliver on Aramark's mission of enriching and nourishing the lives of our students, customers, clients and consumers." said Annette Gray, lead chef, Culinary & Innovation Aramark.

The ProChef Certification program was created by the CIA to provide hands-on skill validation, recognize professional achievement and give knowledge and credentials to advance chefs' careers. Certification from the CIA provides the ultimate stamp of approval in the culinary world.
