The International Chefs Congress is an industry symposium held in New York City with top chefs, bartenders, and sommeliers from around the world sharing techniques and knowledge with 2,000 professional attendees—explored through the theme. For 2018, the theme was Cooking with Respect: Better People, Better Food.
"Leaders from around the globe define what’s good—in the culture we’re working to build, the cuisines we craft, and the profession that drives us all. Along with more than 150 industry leaders from around the globe, we’ll figure out what to celebrate … and what we need to smash. Be there to ask questions, take away techniques, and return to your crew with a revitalized vision for making your business—and this industry—something we can all be proud of.”
Vertical page edges are color-coded to make the section pages more identifiable. Each section page is introduced by a graphic, black and white, photo-driven spread with a single color illustration.
Layouts are simple and spacious, allowing the bright colors and photos to pop. Interior pages filled are with original photography and illustrations, recipes, biographies, and interviews.
