MenuMasters 2015 Drake Hotel

MenuMasters 2015 Drake Hotel

It was that time of year again….time to pack my bags and head to the windy city! I love going to Chicago to photograph MenuMasters Awards Ceremony. MenuMasters Awards Ceremonies recognize visionary and creative foodservice professionals in Research and Development, Culinary and Menu Development. Awards are given to those who enhance the value of foodsevice to consumers with exciting, industry-building innovations and breakthrough ideas. This year I also got to stop by the NRA Show to photograph Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of  The Huffington Post. She was interviewed by Dawn Sweeney, president and CEO of the largest trade group for the U.S. restaurant industry, the National Restaurant Association. What an amazing talk! She spoke of the need to focus on the good in the world. News organizations too often operate on the notion that “if it bleeds, it leads.” The restaurant industry is full of stories of feeding those in need and supporting charitable efforts. There are so many amazing stories like that and we need to tell them and tell them again.”

As you can see, I like to fly in a little early before I have to work so I can have time to explore this gorgeous city and meet new people. Here are some images from MenuMasters 2014 just in case you missed it last year. Check out my view of MenuMasters 2015 below and don’t forget to view the GALLERY where you can view and purchase web quality images from MenuMasters 2015 Drake Hotel.
