ACF award-winning Chef Bill Yee, a certified Covid-19 food safety instructor, recently graduated a class of food service workers on what it takes to operate their businesses during the pandemic. Chef Yee received his ACF (American Culinary Federation) Covid-19 Safety Training certification in late 2020, and through his Alhambra Culinary School organized a one-day Covid-19 workshop to share his knowledge and experience during the pandemic.
His workshop also provides the fundamentals of what it takes to be a professional chef. A full uniform, French chef knife, and other equipment is included. Many food service workers did not have the opportunity for formal culinary school training, so educational workshops such as this one are highly valued, especially during these times.
Chef Yee’s class includes an introduction on culinary fundamentals with professional texts such as author Wayne Gisslen’s Professional Cooking, Servsafe Sanitation Guidelines, and the ACF Covid-19 Safety Training program. Emphasis is on PPE (personal protection equipment) such as wearing the proper masks, PM 2.5 filter, face shields, latex/nitril gloves, disinfectants, CDC, and the National Restaurant Association protocols.
Industry leaders are also invited to present their products and services, such as Sylvia Tam’s Beviva Food line for people with sensitive gut issues and Chef Lidia Felix’s line of Rim Paste adding more flavors to beverages and appetizers.
Food service workers, including front and back of the house staff, need continual professional training and education on how to safely work during the current pandemic. Chef Yee’s program is starting to address some of the major issues to help food service workers who are a critical component in food safety for the public.
