40th Anniversary IACP Conference

Our 2018 conference will explore the rich food scene of New York city, celebrate 40 years of IACP, and focus on how to best tell the story of food.

Attend 2018 conference to get the best and latest information on topics key to your world: cookbook publishing, food writing, photography, video, culinary instruction, recipe development, social media, podcasting, content marketing, trend-spotting, food activism, entrepreneurship, and branding.

Take a bagel making workshop with Melissa Weller or a pickling class with Darra Goldstein and Cortney Burns; learn how to be the freelancer that everyone wants to hire; find out the future of the recipe with Von Diaz, Raquel Pelzel, and Adina Steinman; follow along while Domenica Marchetti and David Joaquin show you on how to take a recipe from the plate to the page; try dishes from a selection of NYC’s top chefs, then enjoy a glass bubbly with some of the biggest names in the culinary world — and that’s just to get things started.

The 40th Anniversary IACP conference will bring together culinary professionals from all sectors of the industry for networking, education, and an in-depth exploration of the diverse NYC food scene.
