Chef Victor Kendlehart of the central Florida resort earned an honor bestowed on only 12 chefs nationally for significant contributions to the culinary profession.
Chef Victor Kendlehart of Streamsong Resort, Bowling Green, Fla., was presented with the American Culinary Federation’s (ACF) President’s Medallion Award at the 2014 ACF National Convention in Kansas City, Mo., at the end of July.
The prestigious honor—bestowed on only 12 chefs and one culinary school nationally—is designed to recognize those who contribute significantly to the culinary profession.
”Victor is a key member of our culinary team,” said Richard Mogensen, Streamsong’s General Manager. “He’s passionate about creating memorable dining experiences and is a true mentor to others on the team. We congratulate him for this well-deserved recognition.”
At Streamsong, Kendlehart assists in recipe and menu development, employee training, and the resort’s overall dining operations. He joined Streamsong prior to the Lodge’s grand opening in January 2014, and brings a depth of hospitality dining experience from his work at hotels, resorts and clubs across the country.
Kendlehart is a certified member of the ACF and is the current president of the ACF’s Young Chefs Club. He is a graduate of The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College in Pennsylvania.
