The James Beard Foundation and Prosciutto di Parma have joined resources to:

  • Introduce you to the new curriculum for reducing waste in restaurant kitchens
  • Have you fully utilize a boneless leg of prosciutto beyond the beautiful thin slices
  • COMPETE in small groups to produce dishes not only measured on their taste but also their waste component! 

There are some terrific resources to review before the competition. Go to Also check out the JBF curriculum at for some brief videos focusing on this topic.

Did I mention prizes for both participants as well as for the winners? Of course!

This class will be a great blueprint for classes you can offer your students. It’s all about good taste, practical usages, and helping the universe.

Sign up for this Master Class to be held at Johnson & Wales University, from 3-6 pm on June 20th in Charlotte. Cost is $25! Spaces are limited. Click here for hotel information as well as registration for the 15th annual CAFE Leadership conference, June 20-22 in Charlotte.
