Chef Paul Bernhardt

The evening's gourmet meal was prepared especially for us by Chef Paul Bernhardt & DVC's HRM Catering Team. Our complements to the Chef! (Chef Paul is an SYC member)

Unfortunately for SYC, Chef Paul has announced his retirement from Diablo Valley College, Culinary Arts Department; therefore this will be the last banquet he and the DVC crew will be preparing for us. While this will be a great loss for SYC, we wish Chef Paul all the best in retirement and in his new adventures!

Special Thanks Chef Paul
