ACFLV and National ACF Culinary Awards

Each year in June, the ACFLV honors outstanding members at a gala celebration - the Chef of the Year Dinner. Our Chef of the Year 2017 Award Dinner was held at the Orleans Hotel and Casino. It was a magnificent event. Chef George Bailey's spectacular dinner menu was fit for the very finest chefs in Las Vegas.
