Food & Culinary Professionals


As we are emerging from our Winter comfort foods and celebrating the delicious recipes that Spring brings, my favorite pre-school poem comes to mind:

Spring Sprang Sprung
Spring has begun
For I see a little daffodil smiling in the sun

I know, it’s corny, but this time of year, with fresh blossoms, longer days and a warm breeze brings the feelings of emergence and renewal.  Speaking of renewal, have you renewed your Academy membership?  Now is the perfect time to do so, and while you’re at it, don’t forget to renew your FCP membership as well.

Do you need continuing education units?  Is your Recertification Cycle ending this year?  I have great news for you.  Did you know that FCP makes more than 32 CPEUs available throughout the year?  I encourage you to take advantage of the numerous member benefits that FCP offers, including webinars, newsletter CPEU articles, our supermarket, food safety, restaurant & hospitality and agriculture subgroups and electronic mailing lists, mentor program, and more.

I’d love to hear about your favorite Spring recipes.  Let us know via twitter @FCPDPG, Instagram at fcpdpg and on our Facebook page.

Here's to happy renewal,

Sheila Weiss, RDN, LD, FAND
2016-2017 FCP Chair
