Culinary Arts: Visiting Chef Series

School of Distinction AwardGulf Shores City Schools

Principal, Mrs. Cindy Veazey

Superintendent, Dr. Matt Akin

The Visiting Chef Series at Gulf Shores High School was developed to create and improve community stakeholder relations while providing students the opportunity to learn from and work with world-class chefs in the local area. Bi-monthly during Focus hour, interested students attended demonstrations by visiting chefs, asked questions, and tasted the prepared dishes. During scheduled class time, chefs also taught students skills involved in preparing the demo dish or worked collaboratively with students to prepare another dish. Chefs shared experiences in competitive food, food-related travel, changing career paths, education, and time management with students. All chefs stressed the importance of finding one’s passion in determining a career path. Many of the chefs involved in the Series partnered with Gulf Shores High School to serve on the Advisory Board and provided job shadowing opportunities to students. Through the Visiting Chef Series, student participation in the Apprenticeship Signing Day via the Gateway Initiative, South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce, and Coastal Business Chamber increased significantly. As a culminating product of the program, the students and Chef Madsen collaborated with a few visiting chefs to plan and prepare an end-of-the-year multi-course tasting at a local venue.
