Food & the Media Arts
We are very excited about our fall event, September 30-October 2 in Denver which will be all about the relationship between the media arts and our foodservice offerings.
Open to both chefs and chef educators, this weekend will wrestle with the challenge of how to make something look good AND taste good! What are the new techniques in branding our programs and/or our restaurants and/or ourselves!
You will hear from editors, publicists, designers, photographers, bloggers, and social media experts.
