Beacon, N.Y. - April 19, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- A team of world-renowned Master Chefs
and culinary leaders announced the formation of Master Chefs, LLC (www.masterchefs-LLC.com)
with the goal of recognizing the highest standards of quality through the Seal of Excellence.
The Master Chefs Seal of Excellence was designed to evaluate and test food, equipment and

purchasing decisions. It is our goal to provide a valued service to the industry and to
establish the Seal of Excellence based upon credibility and uncompromising standards," said
Ferdinand Metz, Managing Partner.
The team of Master Chefs, LLC having won numerous national and international awards, combines
over 190 years of foodservice experience along with the highest level of culinary credentials
-- that of being a Master Chef, of whom there are fewer than 80 in the United States.
The group includes; Ferdinand Metz, CMC (Certified Master Chef), MBA, Edward Leonard, CMC,
Executive Chef of the Westchester Country Club and Manager of the ACF National US Culinary
Team, Fritz Sonnenschmidt, CMC, author, TV Personality and past Chairman of the American
Academy of Chefs, Reinhold Metz, German Master Chef and President of the German Chefs

Starting today, manufacturers of consumer and foodservice products, equipment and beverages can
begin to apply to have their products undergo a rigorous impartial and blind testing process,
within their product categories by a panel of Master Chefs, who focus on the functional,
qualitative and organoleptic product properties.
The manufacturers of products evaluated will receive a detailed report of findings and
recommendations. The products, which have attained the Master Chef level of quality, will be
recognized with the Seal of Excellence.
"In a cluttered marketplace, both consumers and food professionals have to make important value
decisions. As a result, they can benefit greatly by the quality rating of an independent body
like Master Chefs, LLC," said Edward Leonard, company partner.
