For the 20th consecutive year, the Tastes of the World Chef Culinary Conference will take place June 15–20 on the picturesque University of Massachusetts Amherst campus. This year, the Chef Culinary Conference will aim to accelerate foodservice concepts into the next generation – one that embraces health, sustainability, and food ethics, to meet the increasing diversity of consumer preferences. The 2014 conference will feature unique sessions hosted by the nation’s leading experts and innovators in their respective fields and, as always, we will be providing numerous presentations & workshops led by a variety of accomplished chefs.

UMass’s annual Tastes of the World Chef Culinary Conference is highly regarded as the premiere gathering for high-volume food service operators and campus chefs, to learn more about world cuisines and flavor trends in an engaging environment. The conference will not only showcase the gold standards of college cuisines, but will also hone the culinary skills of attendees.

This year’s impressive entourage of experts includes leaders hailing from Johnson & Wales University and The Culinary Institute of America, all of whom will share their expertise and oversee a variety of workshop demonstrations and sessions. As always, the Tastes of the World Chef Culinary Conference will culminate with an ACF-sanctioned team competition, a favorite year after year.

Conference attendance is limited to 300 participants including chefs, managers, manufacturers, farmers, media and the like, so mark your calendar and register early, as many of the events will sell out as the Spring approaches.
