The last three months of my life was dedicated to this year's Star Chefs ICC-International Culinary Congress 2015 held just this past October in Brooklyn. In it's 10th year, this is the largest food conference in North America! Chefs from all over the world, mainly the U.S., gathered under one roof -to learn, to experience, and to get inspired from each other...and from everything in their line of vision. Where else will we be able to brag about being five feet away from MIchel Bras & Jose Andrès (just to name a few). This definitely was the largest event I was involved in, as this three day congress held close to 1,500 folks in one space, with one event team.
I had the amazing...let's just say one-of-a-kind opportunity getting involved at this year's ICC. Why? one of my main projects under my radar was to spearhead the first 'Ramen Battle' at ICC. Was it because I was Asian? As I jokingly asked my director. Well, that may be partially true, haha. Whatever the case may be, this was the most exciting part of my whole process. I could go on and on about Star Chefs, or what I learned from ICC in general. However, to be on the main stage and get to know some pretty freakin awesome Ramen Masters + other chefs, was truly a moment I will definitely never forget. I'll let these photos speak for themselves.Read More
