There’s never been a more exciting time to be a food-lover, and yet we’re also increasingly concerned about issues like food safety, sustainability, and health. What will the food world look like in 30 years? Will traditional restaurants still be around or we will be eating in a world of pop ups and food trucks? Will scientists rule the kitchen? We'll talk to experts across the industry, including chef Michael Anthony of Gramercy Tavern, Glenn Roberts, founder of Anson Mills, marketing whizzes from Rooster Design Group, and writer and Food52 co-founder Amanda Hesser. After the panel stay for demos by cocktail experts and chefs, tastings by local producers, and cameos by some of the city's cult food vendors.
