IACP Pleasure & The Palate, Monday April 2, 11:00am - 12:30pm  Hudson Theater, 145 W.44th Street

$20 Tickets available here

We live in a time of overwrought competitions, famous food stars meting out thermonuclear abuse, snarky yelps, tendentious tweets, and pseudo-spiritual chef worship in the press. What often gets lost int the way we talk about food is that it is about pleasure, connecting with other people, entertaining, fun, and deep down sensual. In this round table discussion, author Peter Kaminsky is joined by like minded hedonists in a discussion of how we communicate the joy of cooking…..and the fun of eating.

Peter Kaminsky, author, creator of The Mark Twain Prize for American Humor
Mario Batali, chef
Gabrielle Hamilton, chef
Sam Sifton, national editor and former restaurant critic at The New York Times
Doug Duda, event producer (moderator)
