The overarching theme of this year's Congress is What is American Cuisine? The purpose is to explore how chefs and industry-leaders from around the country—and across the globe—define American Cuisine. Chefs, and subjects of study and exploration recognize the regional nuances of well-defined and established cuisines, such as Italian, French, Spanish, or Chinese. But the definition of American Cuisine—outside of hotdogs and hamburgers—and the regional differences within the United States is not commonly understood, inside or outside of the US.

Highlights of the three-day Congress will include cooking demonstrations by international presenters including Pierre Gagnaire (Pierre Gagnaire, France), Yoshihiro Murata (Kikunoi & Kiamachi, Japan), Juan Mari Arzak (Restaurante ARZAK, Spain), and Paco Torreblanca (Pasteleria TOTEL, Spain). Domestic presenters include David Bouley (Bouley, New York, NY), Charles Phan (The Slanted Door, San Francisco, CA), Jose Andres (minibar by Jose Andres, Bazaar by Jose Andres, CA), Daniel Boulud (Café Boulud, New York, NY), Dave Arnold and Nils Noren (The French Culinary Institute, New York, NY), Grant Achatz (Alinea, Chicago, IL), Audrey Saunders (Pegu Club, New York NY), Daniel Humm (11 Madison Park, New York, NY), Alex Stupak (wd~50, New York, NY), Marcus Samuelsson (Aquavit, New York, NY) and Johnny Iuzzini (Jean Georges, New York, NY).
