12th Annual StarChefs International Chefs Congress

12th Annual StarChefs International Chefs Congress


Cook Your Culture
The Techniques, Knowledge, and Flavors That Define You

Join us October 22 to 24 for the 12th Annual StarChefs International Chefs Congress in Brooklyn, where you can fortify yourself with three days of main stage demonstrations, hands-on workshops, beverage tastings, and business seminars—explored through the theme Cook Your Culture.

There is no cuisine without culture—no techniques to build from, no flavor memories to haunt you, no restaurants where you can feast with family and friends. This year 150 industry icons will share the influences that permeate their work in the kitchen and on the floor. Culture is fluid. It’s a moment in time, a generation, the places you’ve visited, your country of birth, and your grandmother’s dinged-up gravy pot—all rolled into one. What does that taste like? How do you share it with your guests, staff, and community? ICC 2017 is your chance to ask questions, take away techniques, and return to your crew with a revitalized vision. 

Don’t miss: Best-in-class equipment and products, 20 food carts, 4 pop-up restaurants,  Valrhona C3 Pastry Competition, 8th Annual Somm Slam, 8th Annual Vitamix Challenge and the Inaugural Wing Battle
