Chapter Partners are businesses in the St. Louis area that support our Chefs de Cuisine chapter by providing us their time and effort, products and services, sponsorship and funding, and most importantly, their participation, expertise and advice about developing trends and needs in the culinary industry, Without them, we could only accomplish a small portion of what we set out to do.
