Join the food movement’s movers and shakers at a two-day celebration and discussion of where the American food movement is, and where it’s going. This annual think tank, part of the meeting of 80 Edible magazine publishers from the US and Canada, will feature talks and panels by farmers, chefs, drink makers, journalists and food and drink enthusiasts (like you).
Attendees enjoy two days of discussions at the New School in Manhattan, food and drink tastings, as well as invitations to selected events during the weekend, from walking tours of Brooklyn’s rooftop gardens and bus trips to Hudson Valley wine country to a live food-tech meetup.
Both days will consist of dynamic, moderated, Q&As in the morning and afternoon. There will be breaks for networking and an assortment of refreshments, curated local lunch options and end-of-day food and drink tastings for attendees.
#Edible2014 topics will include:
Culture: Can the food “revolution” cross geographical, cultural and class boundaries?
Technology: The expanding “food-tech” space and what it means.
Business: How to build a sustainable food business in a city (or nearby suburb).
Drinks: Why is the good food movement drinking more?
Seafood: How will small-scale fishers save East Coast seafood?
Food Service: What will it take to bring the good food movement to scale in school cafeterias, hospitals and beyond?
Find the full list of speakers and panels here and check back regularly for updates.
All attendees will be sent a list of recommended accommodations and eating options near the Institute, and a list of curated food and drink activities happening in conjunction with the event, from walking tours of the Union Square Greenmarket and lunch specials for attendees around town to regional food tours before and after the Institute.
