Calling all chefs: are you interested in participating in the USA Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015, the largest global gathering about food in history? The pavilion's theme is American Food 2.0, and since chefs have had a large part in shaping the (r)evolution of food in America, we're giving them a special place in the festivities.
If you're a chef who would like to join us for this once-in-a-lifetime occasion, be sure to mark your calendars for the Great American Chef Rally at the USA Pavilion at Expo Milano on July 21 and 22. We're inviting chefs from across the country to meet us in Milan for a special day to celebrate their role in influencing American cuisine. The USA Pavilion teamed has programmed some exclusive events just for these attendees, such as:
• A private tour of the USA Pavilion
• Day trips to Italian producers in nearby regions, including Lombardy, Piedmont, and Tuscany
• Chef advocacy training à la the James Beard Foundation's Chefs Boot Camp for Policy and Change
• An aperitivo reception of the roof of USA Pavilion
Want to attend? Please complete this brief registration form and we will keep you up to date as the plans develop. Please note that travel or accommodations will not be provided. We hope that won’t keep you away, and we are happy to make recommendations.
