Food is a universal language that people from around the world use in which to communicate, educate and enrich themselves and those around them. It has the ability to empower us and bring us closer together by forging a mutual understanding. It can be used as a tool to advance our society and strengthen who we are as cooks and as people in a way nothing else can.
Every day something new and different is being introduced in the culinary world. It could be a new method, an inspiring new idea or cutting edge technology. This innovation can help us to solve problems, raise awareness and nourish those who need it most.
Culinary innovation has the ability to excite and inspire us and this is the reason why the theme for our 5th annual conference is Roots: Innovate 2017. This year we are bringing together the most groundbreaking chefs, farmers, thought leaders, activists and food scientist to engage in dynamic discussions on culinary innovation.
Join us at Roots: Innovate 2017 and explore the creative and ingenious ways people are thinking out-of-the-box to solve problems, invigorate their cooking, and ensure that the food world of tomorrow is more vibrant, promising and filled with hope and possibility than ever before.
