NAMP Announces Center of the Plate II Course March 27-28, in Chicago
AMSA is partnering with the North American Meat Processors Association (NAMP) to host the 2012 Center of the Plate Training® II: Cuts to Culinary Workshop. Registration is available now at www.namp.com. The 2 day course will be held March 27-28 at Kendall College in downtown Chicago. Last June, close to 100 people attended the inaugural course as Kendall College. This year, AMSA members will receive the discounted member-only rate.
The course was developed in response to demand from attendees at its Center of the Plate Training® I courses, and from industry focus groups that wanted to learn more about these topics.
Featured Speakers Include AMSA Members:
• Dr. Chris Calkins, Nebraska Beef Industry Professor of Animal Science at the University of Nebraska, on the factors that influence meat quality and tenderness.
• Dr. Thomas Powell, Executive Director of the American Meat Science Association, on common misconceptions about meat production and processing.
The course will feature tastings of the recipes demonstrated during the class, as well as wine & specialty beer samplings.
