Paris, 26th of August 2022 – The Worldchefs community mourns the death of Michael Ty, former American Culinary Federation (ACF) National President, who passed away on 22 August 2022.
Michael Ty served two terms as the ACF as National President from 1993-1994 and from 2009-2013. He was a force in our community and the culinary world. There was never a need for recognition, as he quietly did what he loved to do in support of community and his passion for the culinary arts.

Our thoughts go out to all those who loved him and we wish them strength at this difficult time in dealing with his enormous loss.
