World-class celebrity chefs dish out their tips and tricks to showcase their culinary talents at the World Culinary Showcase at this year’s 2014 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show and the International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event at NRA Show (IWSB). Guest attendees will have the opportunity to learn from acclaimed chefs such as Maxime Bilet, co-author of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking; Top Chef Masters contestants Rick Bayless, David Burke, Graham Elliot, and Art Smith; Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern, as well as Food Network stars Claire Robinson, Robert Irvine, Marc Forgione; and more.
“We are incredibly excited about this year’s line-up of talented chefs, as well as our revamped culinary stage,” says Sam Facchini, convention chair for NRA Show 2014 and co-founder and co-owner of Metro Pizza. “The new stage will provide an even greater opportunity to interact with these renowned chefs—to learn, laugh, and be inspired by practical knowledge and skills that operators can take home and apply to their own businesses. I invite all of our attendees to stop by World Culinary Showcase while they are here to experience it for themselves.”
The World Culinary Showcase, running all four days of the NRA Show, will feature chefs from across the country with a wide range of culinary specialties. NRA Show 2014 will be held May 17–20, and IWSB will be held May 18–19 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
