StarChefs.com invites you to the 8th Annual StarChefs.com International Chefs Congress, September 29 – October 1, 2013 in New York City.
ICC is one of a kind, and it's back: a three-day culinary symposium that gathers more than 140 of the world's most innovative chefs, pastry chefs, mixologists, and sommeliers to present the latest techniques and culinary concepts to their peers—i.e., you. September 29 to October 1, you'll have the opportunity to attend Main Stage Demonstrations, Hands-on Savory, Pastry, and Mixology workshops, Wine Tasting Seminars, and Business Panels on current industry topics, all gathered under the umbrella of this year's ICC theme, Guts and Glory: Leaving It All on the Line.
Working in restaurants is a lifestyle, a professional calling, that still manages inspiring progress in the face of 15-hour work days. It's a high-risk, high-reward industry driven by professionals who devote their lives to food and drink. Join us as we celebrate the people and forces behind culinary greatness at this year's ICC.
