Located at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park, the multi-day event celebrates the area's rich culinary landscape and showcases innovations in the food and beverage industries.
Dacor's all-new Modernist Collection – comprised of next generation creative tools designed to reinvent the luxury cooking and cooling experiences for modern entertainers – will take center stage, both literally and figuratively, on two Dacor Kitchen Stages presented by NuKitchens. Throughout the weekend's festivities, famous culinary experts and favorite television network stars will take to the Dacor Kitchen Stages and put the Modernist suite of "culinary co-stars" through their paces in a variety of unique cooking demonstrations for festival-goers – truly turning mealtime into showtime. The brand will also be hosting VIP guests at the festival's Meet the Masters Tent, celebrity green room, and dedicated VIP space. In alignment with its focus on redefining the role of the kitchen, Dacor will be inviting guests to collaborate and experience the excitement and creativity for themselves by throwing out old conventions and discovering new ways to entertain. From creative twists on classic cocktails elevated to an art form with Dacor's signature larger Cocktail Ice™, to new-age popsicles and wine pairings, Dacor will be encouraging attendees to break the mold and experiment with all facets of cooking and entertaining.
