Latin American Cuisine Summit

The Culinary Institute of America’s Latin American Cuisine Summit brings together a diverse audience of foodservice, culinary, and beverage professionals for two days of culinary demonstrations, insightful discussions, and business inspiration and strategy. This year’s theme: Iconic Ingredients celebrates the signature agricultural products—including corn, tomatoes, chilies, and cacao—that are essential in many global cuisines, but whose roots lie in Latin America. Through this lens, we’ll explore climate change, sustainability and regenerative agriculture, traditional and innovative recipes and techniques, and what’s in store for the future. Join us at the CIA San Antonio, September 28-29, 2022.
