The 2013 James Beard Foundation Food Conference

The James Beard Foundation will hold the fourth annual JBF Food Conference at New York City's Convene Conference Center on October 21 and 22. Co-hosted by Good Housekeeping, the conference will bring together a diverse group of thought-leaders and stakeholders in the food system for a unique conversation about the idea of appetite and the conflicts it creates. Appetite fuels ambition, feeds our economy, and encapsulates life, but it also presents challenges, such as obesity and unsustainable business practices. Chef Art Smith, Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter Michael Moss, New Yorker contributor Adam Gopnik, and many others are slated to participate.
