About The Culinary Trust
The Culinary Trust gives culinary professionals the tools and opportunities to understand and act on critical issues in the world of food.
The Culinary Trust started its corporate life on February 7, 1984 under the name Cooking Advancement Research and Education Foundation (CAREF). Its first Trustees were the late Julia Child, CCP, Shirley Corriher, CCP, and Marlene Sorosky, CCP. CAREF was a charitable foundation formed to support research and education in the broad fields of culinary studies, whether from a scientific, literary or practical standpoint. Among CAREF’s significant accomplishments was providing scholarships for culinary education and grants for culinary research at a time when the culinary field was emerging from its popular perception as a trade to its current status as a profession.
The International Association of Culinary Professionals is The Culinary Trust's supporting membership based organization. The IACP connects culinary professionals with the people, places, and knowledge they need to succeed.
