Change in Credit Card Processing Procedures

The Chefs de Cuisine website will no longer accept credit card payments for meetings and special events, as the processing fees used by the website processing provider were climbing. However, we will continue to accept credit card payments at the door for each event, using a moble card reader that has lower processing fees. For all future events, please bring your payment (credit card, cash, or check) with you to the event. Thank you for your understanding.
