Diverse Food Trends - Flavor & Ingredients

This is an exciting event that will keep you moving. Centered around new and exciting menu trends, attendees will see how operators can appeal to the growing customer base of diverse ethnic cultures, vegetarians, vegans and a new sector called flexitarians.
Gone are the days of just serving one cultural dish, veggie burgers or salads to satisfy these customers—today demands more flavor and more variety!
Join us for an evening of observing chefs prepare non-traditional foods, spices and cooking methods that will surely get your creative juices flowing. We will have the pleasure of interacting with multiple chefs, listening as they convey their expertise.
Afterwards we will gather for hors devours, desserts, and drinks to end the evening with plenty of time to mix and mingle.
Featuring future food trends and insights as well as Chef Author Rommel Mendoza.
