USA Pavilion at Expo Milano

Now that Europeans have returned from their August travels, Expo Milano, the first-ever food-focused world's fair that's now open in Milan, is back in full swing until the end of October. Here's a sampling of what's happening at the USA Pavilion, which was produced by JBF and the International Culinary Center:

Terrace Talks, a series of panels and presentations held on the roof of the Pavilion, returns with a discussion of NASA and the space program's often unseen benefits to food systems and life on Earth. A talk on America's insatiable appetite for food television will also take place this month. 

Todd Gray, JBF Award winner Alex Young, and JBF Award winner Anne Quatrano are waiting in the wings for their guest-chef stints at the James Beard American Restaurant, which is modeled after our own James Beard House in New York City. You can view the complete guest-chef schedule to see who's manning the stoves throughout Expo's run. 

The USA Pavilion, themed "American Food 2.0," and Expo Milano are open through October.
