• Chartwells Culinary Innovation Council

    The Culinary Innovation Council is a collective of Chartwells chefs from around the country who work together to bring the latest food trends and new menu items to your schools. Beyond serving as culinary trend-spotters, throughout the year, council members are given culinary challenges to develop new recipes based on student feedback, marketplace insights and menu development needs. This process continually expands your recipe set and promotes engagement in the cafeteria with opportunities to meet the chefs and taste/vote for new menu items. The council also reinforces our chef-driven menu development approach and provides opportunities for culinary career development.
