Okay... It's time. Our Annual Chef Event is planned and we have even more surprises to come, but we just couldn't wait to share one of the amazing, incredible, unbelievable Celebrity Chefs we have presenting! AND, there will be more surprises!

Listen, while we are known for never capping registration and allowing walk-ins, for this meeting, we will cap at 100 and we will sell out. We are offering a $10 off "Early Bird" special for 1 week and then the pricing goes to normal. You get it... Reserve your spot as soon as you can or you may miss this awesome opportunity!
