 Having Fun in ’21!!!


Chaine Buffalo will be hosting the 2021 The Chaine North East Regional Young Chef Competition and we will celebrate this event with our first dinner of 2021 at the Country Club of Buffalo. Professionel du Vin Jon Notarius, and Vice Echanson Sharon Osgood have chosen several delightful wines to complement the culinary wizardry of Chef Rotisseur Joe Piazza and his team. Chef Piazza, CEC, AAC, was recently inducted into the American Academy of Chefs. CCB was lucky to woo Chef Piazza, with his extraordinary pedigree, to Buffalo.  This CIA trained dynamo has served as Executive Chef at four clubs including (most notably) the nationally regarded Congressional Club in DC, Cherry Hill Country Club and as Executive Sous Chef of Oak Hill Country Club. He served as President and then Chair of the ACF Denver Chapter, medaled several times with gold and several at numerous culinary competitions and was 2007 USA National Chef of the Year Runner Up, and Western Region Champion. In 2009 he was certified as an Executive Chef by the ACF.


It is important to note that registration for this event will be limited due to social distancing requirements. Priority will be given to the Young Chef Competitors joining us from all over the North East and their sponsors, inductees and members. So, I encourage you to register ASAP.


Having waived local membership fees for this year, it is imperative that your national dues are paid to partake in this event at the member’s rate. Please be mindful that membership remains the lifeblood of both the local and national Chaîne, so if you have any friends who value camaraderie, fun dining experiences, food and wine, please don’t hesitate to recommend them to me for consideration of membership.


An invitation for “Caviar and Champagne will be coming out soon (planned in the brand new BAM Gallery(Buffalo Art Movement), with the option of virtual attendance, and shortly thereafter we will be enjoying an evening at Oliver’s (Sunday April 25th). I am just finalizing details for the venues and menus.


Because of Covid, I will honor requests for smaller tables, and also specific seating requests. Masks must be worn away from tables, and hors d’oeuvres will be served plated at tables. There will be no reception prior to being seated, so a timely arrival is important. There will be abbreviated inductions and elevations during the course of the dinner at each of the next few events. So if you are due to be inducted or elevated, now is your time at last!
