On August 7, ten of the country’s best farm to table chefs will transform the New Orleans Convention Center into a farm-fresh playground as they compete in the inaugural Chefs Taste Challenge for the coveted title of 2015 Farm to Table Chef of the Year. So what’s all this talk about “farm to table?” The farm to table philosophy encourages local production and distribution of foods.
Gambit is a proud local sponsor of NOLA Know-How, a Business-to-Business (B2B) resource fair culminating with TED-style presentations by five local business owners speaking on the theme of "What I Made with Lemons."
Do you get a thrill when a friend or co-worker asks YOUR opinion on anything New Orleans related? Is dishing out advice a competitive sport for you, and when your suggestion is well-received you feel a rush of satisfaction that can only be compared to making a winning goal?
A better question is why not?
