Kenn Enochs Auxchef Chair 5 NR


I was very impressed with the training I was given in the Auxchef program conducted by Kenn Enoch and Ted Ballin. Professionally. I have been through many seminar training sessions and this presentation was one of the best and most prepared. The weekend experience was knowledgeable and very well presented. Even though cooking is a important part of my life, personally, professionally and as a hobby, I learned many things I had never known. The Auxiliarists that were part of my training included first time novices to those who have been kitchen savvy for years. It is a testament to our training that the entire team worked as one and we had lots of fun doing it. M. Librizzi

Do you like to cook or work in a kitchen? Would you like to work on a cutter or at a Coast Guard Station or just help out for special events and where you can. Then, this program is for you. You do not need to be a chef or experienced cook, just willing to help out and become an AUXCHEF member. You will learn at the Coast Guard Station Atlantic City on Sunday... a great opportunity!
