The NYC area Edible Magazine collective (Edible Brooklyn, Edible Manhattan and Edible East End) is producing a conference from June 5-7 at Stony Brook Southhampton to discuss all things about the business of food and drink. The conference will be hosted by The Food Lab, a center for food education, media and enterprise, and will bring together farmers, chefs, drink makers, food investors and many more folks to promote a healthier regional food system.
The weekend-long conference will include:
A cocktail and shellfish reception curated by Edible East End (The EIC of which is SMNYC board member Brian Halweil).
Discussions on the business of booze, the convergence of food and technology, and social enterprise in the North Eastern Foodshed.
A keynote conversation with Food 52’s Amanda Hesser and food novelist Jessica Soffer
Tastings of a wide array of products from brewers, yogurt makers, ice cream scoopers, poultry-women, baristas and more
And, what’s especially exciting, is that SMNYC’s Derek Denckla will be a panelist on Sunday June 7th. He’ll discuss the social purpose of the food business with Mary Cleaver (Cleaver Company), Tanya Steel (Kid’s State Dinner at the Whitehouse), Kathleen Masters (AFI), Ron Tanner (NASFT), Kevin Elgoff (Local Farms Fund) and Liz Neumark (Great Performances).
