Last week was the Women Chef and Restaurateurs Conference here in Seattle. Established by Barbara Tropp and seven pioneering women chefs and restaurateurs, WCR is an active resource for women seeking to advance culinary education and gain recognition in various areas of the food and beverage industry.
Kathy Casey was asked to be a presenter for this years conference, speaking about #SippingSocialTrends – featuring all things trending in the beverage industry. She was also a judge for Food Games with great fellow judges, contestants and team coaches. See what’s next for WCR at WomenChefs.org and check out the full Sipping Social Trends presentation above!
