Conference is less than three weeks away! Register now, before Early Bird pricing ends, February 15.
We’re thrilled to be heading to Louisville, Kentucky, for three days packed with loads of exciting speakers, cutting-edge topics, and powerful networking. Our speakers include Melissa Clark, Ed Lee, Dorie Greenspan, Kat Kinsman, Sam Sifton, Peter Reinhart, Rick Rodgers, and Molly Yeh, plus dozens of other inspiring presenters. Keynote presentations will explore the evolving identity of southern foodways, and the ways technology is rapidly changing the way we eat – and how culinary professionals can adapt to the modern era.
This year, we’ve added even MORE sessions to the schedule, along with our second annual Community Cook-In, engaging Night Owl sessions, and a special world premier of a food documentary – plus a hot-brown smackdown!
