This is the first post of many to come. I am the head chef of a crew of White Mountain Apaches, including myself. As a Native Chef, this basic fact is very important because I have cooked in many places in the United States and around the world and this is the only kitchen that is filled with Native people, White Mountain Apaches for that matter, including the chef. We focus on training and fundamentals in our kitchen. Communication and professional terminology is also utilized and reinforced on a daily basis. As the chef, I tell the crew of the possibilities at hand and great opportunity to grow as a team and just as importantly as individuals.
