At Worlds of Flavor®, you will spend three days alongside 700 like-minded, flavor-seeking culinary pioneers, mixing business with pleasure as you learn from some of the best chefs in the world. What better way to meet your colleagues than while discussing the inspiration provided by chefs from Spain, Denmark, Mexico, Japan, Turkey, England, or Singapore? From the famed world marketplace tastings to the outdoor live fire, from the main stage to the stoves of our 15,000-square-foot teaching kitchen, from the herb garden to the wine center, the CIA’s historic Greystone campus provide the perfect background for inspiration, engaging all of your senses at all moments as you listen, watch, smell, hear—and taste!
You will attend culinary demonstrations, presentations, panels, and workshops that showcase both the most modern of techniques and century-old traditions and give you the latest data on trends and demographics. Uniquely at Worlds of Flavor, you also get to taste the food you watch being made; without traveling further than California, you can eat three-star Michelin and street food delicacies from just about anywhere in the world. In the evenings, join new and old friends at the world-class restaurants of the Napa Valley. And stay an extra day to visit wineries and markets, to complete the full culinary immersion that Worlds of Flavor offers.
