7th Annual StarChefs.com International Chefs Congress NY

If you need an excuse to go to New York this weekend (other than shopping!), this is it. Billed as the most thrilling industry food event of the year: the 7th Annual Starchefs.com International Chefs Congress takes place from September 30 to October 2 at the Park Avenue Armory.

From history-plundering menus and heirloom archaeology to progressive technologies and boundary-breaking culinary concepts, StarChefs.com has tracked an industry-wide embrace of the history and horizons of food and drink. And for its seventh year, ICC will celebrate this phenomenon, with three days programming that showcases the creative searching and innovating that connect the industry’s earliest roots to its wildest imaginations—its origins and its frontiers.

Joining them to lead the conversation will be 90 of the world’s most innovative chefs, pastry chefs, mixologists and sommeliers—including Josean Alija, Mario Batali, John Besh, Sean Brock, Mathias Dahlgren, Elizabeth Falkner, Masaharu Morimoto, Seamus Mullen, Gary Regan, Andy Ricker, Marcus Samuelsson and Dave Wondrich —all gathered to contemplate the conscious culinary evolution we call Origins and Frontiers: The Archaeology of Modern Cuisine.

This event is strictly industry only, but if you can’t make it, or are just an interested foodie, this year you can ‘virtually’ go. For the first year ever they will allow the public to view live streaming from the ICC, with the opportunity to watch mainstage presentations from the world’s top chefs.
