American Academy of Chefs Culinary Hall of Fame™
The founding of the American Academy of Chefs Culinary Hall of Fame™ was inspired in 1988 by then Academy Chair Jon Greenwalt, CEC®, AAC®, HOF at the ACF National Convention in Las Vegas.
“The Culinary Hall of Fame was unanimously accepted by the Academy members.
Its concept is to honor those men and women who, because of their outstanding attributes,
have won the respect and love of their professional guild. Therefore, they are so honored by
their peers as a positive reflection to all those in this profession who seek achievement!”
— Hermann G. Rusch
