Chefs hailing from Florida to California, and everywhere in between, descended on Northeast Ohio for the Certified Angus Beef ® Chef Innovation Summit. The three-day event fueled one-of-a-kind collaboration opportunities among the group, spurring inspiration that attendees took back to their respective establishments. Guiding that innovation were sessions including advanced, hands-on beef butchery, a discussion on the science of dry aging, a visit to a local, family Angus farm, and most importantly, a chance to explore with beef experts and their peers.
Ashley Hutson, sous chef at Ortanique, Coral Gables, Fla., summed up the event: “It was great to have this many chefs together without egos and more about their passion for our trade.”
