Hamilton Park Hotel's Chef C.J. Chambers' Copper Skillet has turned...Green!
Hamilton Park Hotel’s very own Executive Sous Chef, C.J Chambers, recently brought home the gold, I mean copper. The Copper Skillet Award that is! Chef C.J. was recently awarded the highest culinary award in a standoff competition between the best of the best chefs within the International Association of Conference Centers (IACC) collection. When asked to comment on C.J.’s recent honor, VP/Managing Director Joe Crimmins stated “It has been a pleasure to watch C.J. grow and refine his culinary skills during his time with Destination Hotels & Resorts and Hamilton Park! He is very passionate about his profession and has a natural curiosity which all great chefs possess!” That same curiosity that Mr. Crimmins speaks of is now expanding outside of the kitchen into some of New Jersey’s finest farms. As a result, Hamilton Park is a place where companies can conduct meetings while knowing that the hotel in which they are conducting business is committed to sustainability practices.
