FoodService Director is pleased to welcome some new members to its Culinary Council, a panel of chefs from C&U, B&I, hospitals, senior living and K-12. On a rotating basis, these experts answer questions about food trends and ideas. And in October, FSD will host a dozen Culinary Council members at our first Culinary Council Summit at the University of Michigan, sponsored by Avocados From Mexico and Land O’Lakes. Look out for highlights in the pages of FSD and online in the coming months.
