13th Annual StarChefs International Chefs Congress

13th Annual StarChefs International Chefs Congress



Join us October 21 to 23 for the 13th Annual StarChefs International Chefs Congress, and fortify yourself and your team with three days of main stage cooking demons, hands-on workshops, beverage tastings, and business seminars—explored through the lens of Cooking with Respect: Better People, Better Food.

We can do better as an industry. 

That’s why StarChefs will bring together more than 150 leaders from around the globe to define what’s good—in kitchen culture, the cuisines we craft, and the profession that drives us—along with the behaviors and practices that we need to root out and smash. There’s an inextricable link between great hospitality, a safe and happy workplace, and exceptional food and drink. Let’s establish that connection at the 2018 Congress. 

Come, ask questions, take away techniques, and return to your crew with a revitalized vision for making your business—and this industry—something we can all be proud of.
