The Calgary Chef Association is the local branch of the Canadian Culinary Federation. We are a professional not for profit association promoting the culinary arts. The Association was formed at the first meeting held at the Crossroads Hotel in the fall of 1958, and was incorporated in 1961 as the Academy of Chefs Calgary. The familiar name Calgary Chef Association we now use dates back to 1986. In 2004 the name designation Culinary Federation Calgary Branch was added.
