We’ve got a busy summer on our hands, with trips to foodservice industry events on both U.S. coasts. On the schedule for the next few months:
International Corporate Chefs Association (ICCA) Annual Summit, Miami
Australian Beef and Lamb is a patron sponsor of this annual event, which brings together some of the nation’s most creative corporate chefs to share their vision for the next decade. The International Corporate Chefs Association is the first association designed exclusively for corporate chefs from the nation’s largest chains and multi-unit operations.
RAMMY Awards Gala, Washington, D.C.
Australian Beef and Lamb are proud to be sponsors of this annual hot-ticket dinner, fundraiser and awards ceremony, hosted by the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington. An estimated 1,600 hospitality influencers and media will explore four pavilions, highlighting diverse local and international foods, with cocktail, craft beer and wine bars along the way. If you’re attending, you’ll find us in the Australia pavilion, where offerings will include an Australian Waygu Carpaccio with pickled red onions and Yuzu Vinaigrette; Australian Lamb shoulder racks sous vide in a Thai Red Curry sauce; and an Australian Grass-fed Beef Pho. Also sample some of Australia’s finest wines and cheeses on the pavilion.
Plate magazine Chef’s Table, Seattle
We're eagerly anticipating this West Coast iteration of our successful Australian Beef and Lamb-sponsored Chef's Table events with Plate magazine. No doubt it'll be every bit as delicious as last year's Chef's Tables, with chefs Michele Carter (The Butcher Shop, Boston), Ned Elliott (Foreign & Domestic, Austin) and Jeff McMinnis (Yardbird, Miami). Previous featured dishes include Australian Lamb Tartare; Sliced Rib of Australian Wagyu beef, with grits and salsa; and Australian Goat Tagine with creamy labna.
The Flavor Experience, Newport Beach
Australian Lamb is a Pinnacle Sponsor of this yearly conference for top-level executives, focused on flavor as a menu component, differentiator and more. Sessions will focus on a range of topics, from the business of flavor to international menu trends. We’ll also be participating in a special food and beverage showcase for operators and pinnacle partners.
Expo Comida Latina, Los Angeles
Australian Beef and Lamb are looking forward to participating in this immersive three-day event, North America's only trade event focused on bringing authentic, specialty, gourmet and mainstream products from around the globe to retail and foodservice buyers looking to meet the demands of today's Hispanic American U.S. population. As an added bonus, the show is co-located with the Western Foodservice and Hospitality Expo, featuring more than 650+ leading industry suppliers, and offering an equal focus on fast-growing trends in the retail and foodservice industries.
