The Chef of the Year must be nominated by a fellow member of the USPCA. Criteria for this award innovations in their business, community outreach, mentoring or volunteer work, and success in the personal chef field. “The USPCA has been instrumental in every step of the way,” said Chef Cantrell. “The community of chefs that are a part of it have been instrumental to my growth in business, but the life-long friends I have made as a result are invaluable. Winning Chef of the Year at this conference was without a doubt the pinnacle of such a long road in my ‘cheffing’ career. I am honored and grateful to my friends and colleagues that voted for me.”
“We are incredibly proud of all that Chef Deb has accomplished,” said USPCA President Larry Lynch. “Deb has always been open and giving to her fellow members and with her community. She is a wonderful chef and is well deserving of this award. “
