An important meeting for our Chapter for a few reasons.  

First, Chef Jerry Edwards, NACE member and internationally acclaimed Chef, will create an interesting, informative and educational and quite tasty wine event for us to enjoy.  We'll learn about wines, how to taste them and how to pair them!

Secondly, and very important, this will be the meeting where we vote for our Board of Directors to serve for the upcoming year.  If you have an interest in serving on the Board or even being part of a committee, please reach out to Rachel Hoffberger at  Be a voice in the leadership of our Chapter and be a part of its growth.



JERRY EDWARDS, CPCEPresident and Corporate Chef
In addition to building one of the most successful catering companies in his region, Jerry has traveled the world, training and assisting caterers, chefs and event planners to animate their guest’s culinary experience.

Since inception, Jerry’s leadership led to two separate National Catering Company of the Year Awards. He personally won over 50 industry awards and holds an honorary doctorate in hospitality, but is most proud of his NACE Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement Award.

Jerry has been a contributing writer for several national magazines including Catersource, Special Events and Catering. He is currently working on two books, one for the industry titled “A Chef’s Perspective” and one for the culinary public titled “Seasons of the Grape,” a book on seasonal cooking and wine pairing in wine growing regions around the globe.

Jerry also champions many charities for children’s issues, social causes and adult diseases. Jerry is the current spokesperson for Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland. Each year he also spearheads a Chef’s Dinner, raising over $100,000 for the charity. In 2011, Chef’s Expressions was honored with the Business Philanthropy Award from the Maryland Chamber of Commerce.

Outside of catering, consulting and administration, Jerry finds peace and solitude in his farm-style kitchen where he creates wine dinners for both family and friends.
