11th Annual Star Chefs International Chefs Congress

October 23, 2016 - October 25, 2016

For the 11th annual StarChefs International Chefs Congress, we’re gathering some of the industry’s most formidable professionals to bring you the future of food and drink. For three days, October 23 to 25, we’ll explore the most cutting edge techniques, trends, and products—through the theme, “What Is Progress.” ICC is host to Main Stage Cooking Demonstrations, Hands-on Savory, Pastry, and Bartender Workshops, Wine Tasting Seminars, and Business Panels.

You’ll also eat the best lunch in New York City from our Eat@ICC food carts and network with a drink (or two) in hand at our Congress Cocktail on Mondaynight. We’re also bringing back some exciting competitions: the Somm Slam, Vitamix Challenge, and Valrhona C3 Pastry Competition—not to mention the first-ever Dumpling Battle.
