Registration began today for the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) annual conference, to be held in New Orleans April 15-20.
Looks like a good line up in the regular agenda:
Food and travel writer Pableaux Johnson, Times Picayune columnist and food writer Lolis Eric Elie, Nick Spritzer of NPR's "American Routes" radio program, co-chair of the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery Paul Levy (who coined the word "foodie" in his 1984 book "Offical Foodie Handbook"), chef/author/celeb Paul Prudhomme, and others. Many of the topics look great.
I also know Nathalie Durpee, John Shields, John Folse and more will be in attendance.
Are there any other food media professionals on the board planning to attend? I'm going down on Monday and staying until the next Monday. Would be great to meet some others from the Chowhound boards while down there.
