Kenyan-Born, Oregon-Based Chef Allan Wambaa Earns Top U.S. Culinary Honor

Chef Allan Wambaa

The chef responsible for food choices at the Oregon Convention Center has received a high industry honor. Allan Wambaa, who's executive chef for the convention center, the Portland'5 Centers for the Arts and the Portland Expo Center, has attained the ProChef III certification level from the Culinary Institute of America.

The certification means that Wambaa has mastered such areas as Asian cuisine and knowledge of wine, as well as finances and human resources, among other categories.

"Chef Allan brings world class acumen and taste to what he does, but he also knows how to deliver a very local, Portland product," said Scott Cruickshank, executive director of the Oregon Convention Center, in a release. "Convention center meals are often thought of as institutional type food. But not here. We are fortunate to have Chef Allan as part of our team and are very proud of his recent accomplishment."

The Kenyan-born Wambaa manages the facilities' catering services as well as the spots' finer dining options. - Portland Business Journal
