The overarching theme of this year's Congress is What is American Cuisine? The purpose is to explore how chefs and industry-leaders from around the country—and across the globe—define American Cuisine. Chefs, and subjects of study and exploration recognize the regional nuances of well-defined and established cuisines, such as Italian, French, Spanish, or Chinese. But the definition of American Cuisine—outside of hotdogs and hamburgers—and the regional differences within the United States is not commonly understood, inside or outside of the US.
