Chef Cher Harris, CEPC, executive pastry chef at The Hotel Hershey, has been named Pastry Chef of the Year by the American Culinary Federation at the Cook. Craft. Create. Convention & Show in Phoenix. Not only that, but she received a gold medal award, based on a points system from ACF.

Harris was named Northeast Region Pastry Chef of the Year earlier this year, which qualified her for the national competition. At that same event, she won the highest gold medal, meaning she scored the highest out of every competitor both inside and outside the pastry division.

“I’m so proud to have represented the Northeast Region, as we haven’t won the national title in quite some time,” says Harris. “It’s a very important accomplishment, and I’ve had so many strong mentors throughout my career from the ACF.”

The competition took place on Monday, July 18; the winner was announced Tuesday, July 19. The ACF Pastry Chef of the Year award recognizes a pastry chef who displays a passion for the craft, has an accomplished reputation in the pastry field and has helped educate others by sharing skills and knowledge.
