ALB Offers Curriculamb for Culinary Schools
January 19, 2018

In an effort to educate culinary students and chefs, the American Lamb Board has developed a variety of tools - from posters showing the most common lamb cuts used in foodservice to step-by-step lamb fabrication sheets.

These materials as well as sheep industry information, various videos and a slide show have been combined in an online culinary education program called Curriculamb. The Curriculamb is designed to support culinary school courses in purchasing and receiving, nutrition, meat fabrication, cooking techniques and menu planning. The Curriculamb has also been approved by the American Culinary Federation for 4.5 continuing education hours.

To date, more than 400 ACF chefs have completed the Curriculamb quiz and evaluation to receive these continuing education hours which are used for initial ACF certification or recertification. On average, the chefs have ranked the Curriculamb program as 4.7 on a scale of one to five, with five being excellent.
