MenuMasters 2014 - Drake Hotel Chicago
This past weekend I had the incredible opportunity to fly to Chicago to photograph MenuMasters 2014 at the Drake Hotel during the NRA Show weekend. MenuMasters is an invite only awards ceremony for those who enhance the value of foodservice to consumers with exciting, industry-building innovations and breakthrough ideas. This gala event is presented by Nation’s Restaurant News and sponsored by Ventura Foods, LLC.
Let me set the stage for you: Live music, confetti flying everywhere, and a cheering crowd as they announced the winner for each category. This years winners were McDonald’s Corporation, Joe’s Crab Shack, Chili’s Grill & Bar, Wendy’s International, True Food Kitchen, First Watch Restaurants, Chef Michael Smith and last but not least Mary Sue Millikan & Susan Feniger. Not only did we get to celebrate with them but we got to taste their award winning food! We ended the evening at the after party dancing the night away under an elevated DJ stage. This talented group sure knows how to have fun! Enjoy! To view all images from the event and to purchase digital downloads please click here.
