The fourth annual Art of Catering Food invites chefs, owners and industry professionals to gather for three days of culinary-intensive educational sessions. Through up-close and personal learning experiences, attendees will see techniques used by the most successful chefs, examine new ingredients and recipe components, and develop new menu ideas to take back to their own businesses.
Developed with the help of the ICA Culinary Council, the action-packed education schedule allows attendees to participate in every single session without having to pick and choose. With almost every session presenting new recipes, all menu items demonstrated on stage will be available to taste. Keeping the culinary experience at the heart of every catered event, the Art of Catering Food also dives deeper into how catering service owners can run a completely inspired business while improving margins.
