The world of food is inevitably connected to everything from agricultural, legislative and environmental issues to health and nutrition, entertaining and the art of dining. As the culinary landscape continues to expand, the cooking and dining experience is rapidly evolving as well.
The Next Big Bite is a panel discussion featuring culinary experts who will explore the vital role that food plays in the lives of consumers and address the topic, “What You will Cook, Eat and Crave in 2016.” Sponsored by Les Dames d’Escoffier New York (LDNY), the preeminent professional women’s culinary organization, this first annual event will be held on October 26th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the newly located Institute of Culinary Education (ICE), 225 Liberty Street at Brookfield Place in New York City. Doors open at 6:00 PM.
This must-attend event is open to the general public. Authoritative panelists guided by a renowned moderator will share their knowledge of the ever-changing food landscape and offer a glimpse of what to expect in the coming year. Moderated by Rozanne Gold, four-time James Beard Award-winning author, chef and journalist, The Next Big Bite will include panelists: Amanda Cohen, chef/owner, Dirt Candy; Amanda Hesser, co-founder/CEO, Food52; Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health at New York University; and Mimi Sheraton, pioneering food journalist and restaurant critic.
Moderator Rozanne Gold will touch on some provocative topics, such as, “What is the intersection of health and gastronomy? How is technology changing our industry? Who are the cutting-edge game changers, and why do trends matter?” For her—and the audience—the deeper question will be: “In a world where people experience life in the palm of their hand, snapping a photo of every dish before they put it into their mouth, how do we redefine pleasure and expectation?”
Event sponsors include the Institute of Culinary Education, Abigail Kirsch Catering, Cuisinart, elit by Stolichnaya, The Winebow Group, Wüsthof and Heritage Radio.
