Breaking News: Starchefs ICC 2012 Will Be Available Live to the General Public

The trend-setting Starchefs International Chefs Congresses have always been Industry only events. If one was a member of the general public, one would not have access to the demos and presentations of industry leading chefs at the Congress other than through blogs like this one and other media outlets reporting after the fact. Still, one couldn’t actually witness the action personally as it occurred. For the first time, this year’s Starchef’s ICC will be different.

True, actually attending the Congress remains Industry only, but has announced a new program that according to

will allow the public to view live streaming from their 7th Annual International Chefs Congress (ICC), a three-day culinary symposium that gathers more than 100 of the world’s most innovative chefs, pastry chefs, mixologists, and sommeliers to present the latest techniques and culinary concepts to their peers. For the past six years, ICC has been an industry-only event, but for the first time, the public will have the opportunity to watch mainstage ICC presentations, which includes demos from rock star presenters John Besh (Besh Restaurant Group), Sean Brock (Husk), Elizabeth Falkner (Krescendo), Masaharu Morimoto (Morimoto) and  Marcus Samuelsson (Red Rooster).
