IACP 2008 Annual Conference @ New Orleans

IACP members will meet in New Orleans on the week of April 14, to celebrate its 30th Anniversary and participate in "Rhythm on the Plate" - this year's Annual Conference. If you arrive early, you may want to check out the culinary tours being offered on Tuesday - a nice start to the week that lies ahead. Wednesday is when our professional sections have their forums, and also when we hold our opening reception. From Thursday through Saturday you may attend our workshops, but I warn you, you are going to have a very hard time deciding on which to attend, because they are all very good. Among the chefs, writers, and bloggers that will participate in the IACP 2008 Annual Conference are:

* Paul Prudhomme
* Emeril Lagasse
* John Besh
* Susan Spicer
* Jessica Harris
* Pim Techamuanvivit
* Nina Simonds
* David Thompson
* Mai Pham
* Rick Bayless
* Raymond Blanc
* Mark Hix
* Donald Link
* Mas Masumoto
* Suvir Saran
* Patricia Mc Causland-Gallo

If you would like to help the New Orleans culinary community get back on its feet, join us during IACP 's 30th Annual Conference at the New Orleans Hilton Riverside for a memorable week. If you are not an IACP member, you can still attend the conference. For more information and to read the conference program, click here.

Because the conference is right before Passover, a holiday that takes much preparation, I won't be able attend this year. I am terribly disappointed.
