Kindly let me take the liberty to introduce myself: I am Chef Jeffrey Rotz, globally certified Executive Chef through World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) and the American Culinary Federation (ACF). I am also Certified Culinary Educator (CCE), and the principal owner of Chefs Helping Chefs (CHC); a company solely created for the betterment of the hospitality industry.
Over the past 10 years, “CHC” has become a leader for gastronomical training in the Caribbean and Mexico. Our past clients also include properties in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, and the cruise ship industry.
As the name of my company implies, we are here to provide a helping hand to the Chefs and Hospitality Professionals around the globe, mainly by providing live and in person training needs where busy schedules often get in the way of furthering employee education and certification. We assist in preparation for the written and practical exams for the prestigious ACF and WACS certifications. However, our training is not limited to Nutrition, Food Safety & Sanitation, Supervisory Management and Cost Control, but can also encompass additional hands-on training of every aspect of back or front of the house job skills.
Contrary to our competitors, all of our instructors have worked over 20 years in the industry; we teach from experience not only book knowledge. Curriculums are property-specific written, not one fits all, and we are cost-effective and results-driven; while keeping the students and properties success at the forefront of all training.
Today’s travelers are more educated and more aware of the “behind the scenes” of the hospitality industry than ever before. Television and media have taken their cameras into kitchens, and with that, your employees and your property are in the spotlight immediately as it happens. Development of your in-house food and beverage team is critical to attaining and maintaining high ratings in the travel industry.
Education and certification are the best way to get there. The “JCTI”, Jamaica Center of Tourism Innovation, has recognized the growing demands and observations of travelers and implemented an initiative whereas every graduate in culinary and hospitality will enter the workforce with an ACF or NRAEF certification, in addition to investing in a “Train the Trainer” course administered by Chefs Helping Chefs LLC.
We are looking forward to discussing your training needs.
