Delivery Date for August Center of the Plate and The National Culinary Review revised
ACF's goal is to bring you the most comprehensive coverage of the ACF National Convention in San Antonio. To that end, our August editions of COP and NCR will be delayed until late August/early September so we may better inform our members of the events at convention. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we will resume our schedule with the September issue delivery, quickly on the heels of the August editions.
