Improve Your Food Selfies

Improve Your Food Selfies

 

If I have not had the chance to introduce myself, here's my chance. I'm Tiffany Square, most of our chefs/employees know me as the HR assistant but I also write these blogs and I am the one responsible for posting College Chefs' food pictures onto our social media.

The reason that it looks like we have the best food in the fraternity & sorority catering business is because we do!  Most fraternity & sorority kitchens don't have a photo studio in them so we make best with what we have! 

On a daily basis I receive dozens of pictures which are then reviewed, cropped, & selected for our social media. The process that I have created for myself allows me to quickly review each photo and select the most appropriate.

There're several key qualities I look for in finding the "winning picture". Some of those qualities include lighting, angle, presentation, and overall creativity. 

While I am thankful and appreciative to all of our chefs and sous chefs who take the time to snap pics and send them to me, I have helpful information that can improve food "selfies".  

Hope you find this blog helpful.

Chef Robert Schumacher - Area Manager

Chef Robert Schumacher - Area Manager

Young, energetic, and eager, Chef Robert Schumacher has the proven abilities to be one College Chefs' top chefs.


 With an unknown passion for the culinary arts that started off as just a way to eat in class, a then teenage Robert picked a culinary class during his sophomore year in high school just as a way fill his schedule. Not knowing that cooking would become such a big part of his life, Robert went with the flow and blossomed throughout his high school years.  

Not losing his fiery desire to continue his path in the culinary arts, after graduating high school he obtained his culinary arts degree.  As well as taking advantage of many opportunities to work alongside classically trained chefs fancy restaurants that you usually only see on TV and movies.

A now mature Chef Robert is powerhouse pumping out delicious gourmet style dishes for the brothers of Kappa Alpha Order at the University of Florida and they are loving it!  To quote College Chefs' GM of Business Operations, Dave Tarrant, "Chef Robert is one of our up-and-coming superstars, plain & simple.  Knowing that we have talents such as him on our staff is exciting... We are so thankful we have him in Gator Country!"



Don't stop now, read more about my conversation with Chef Robert.

Meet The Dream Team -- Delta Gamma at the University of Oklahoma


Yes you heard right...The Dream Team, dream team of chefs that is!

These three young chefs are taking over the kitchen at the Delta Gamma House at the University of Oklahoma with their creative style, sharp presentation, and delicious food combinations. 

There's no doubt that "the dream team" are exactly on point with the College Chefs vision and leading an excellent example of how and what the Greek food industry should look like.

But hey, don't let me do all the talking, check the article that College Chefs very own Scott Bachman (supervisor) wrote...Scott also supervises their area and knows them personally.

Enjoy

Chef Gary Klein, Sigma Phi Epsilon @ UNC

Chef Gary Klein, Sigma Phi Epsilon @ UNC

 

I had the chance to catch up with Chef Gary Klein over at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity at the University of North Carolina. Gary and I had an absolute blast digging into his cooking experiences, funny stories on life, and him being in a metal rock band. 

From cooking for huge corporations, traveling as a regional chef, to signing million dollar food contracts as a food broker, there is no stopping Gary Klein when he is determined. 

Now situated in North Carolina cooking for 50+ young fraternity brothers at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house in beautiful Chapel Hill North Carolina, the next step for Gary is to become a Master Chef and he is holding himself to it. 

Read on and enjoy my Q&A with Chef Gary Klein

Welcome To College Chefs

Welcome To College Chefs

With the healthy growth over the last couple of years, College Chefs has been able to provide the opportunity to hundreds of Chefs across the country to work for a thriving leader in the Greek Food Industry.

From this hiring spree also came with a scattering of employees throughout the states, with most employees working in several states away from College Chefs main headquarters in Champaign, IL. The College Chefs management team and myself thought that it only makes sense that we give our employees a glimpse of the College Chefs office, so...here you all go.

Enjoy.
