On Thursday of this past week I received an email informing me that the essay I wrote to Starchefs had been selected and as a result I won a scholarship to attend this year’s International Chefs Congress in NYC .
One of my brother’s friends in NYC is letting me use his apartment on the west side. I have the plane ticket so all systems are go.
I have wanted to attend this conference for some time. It is held annually in NYC and brings together some of the worlds top chefs. Keynote speaker is Heston Blumenthal for example. Many of the presentations will feature topics on sustainability and new emerging culinary technologies. Right up my alley.
Obviously, I will actively take pictures and provide details of the conference on further posts.
Until then I am counting the days……
