Business of Food

Charleston Music Hall


The Business of Food is back. Join us as we serve up a two-part panel discussion with some of the industry’s finest culinary luminaries.

John T. Edge, author and director of the Southern Foodways Alliance leads a panel of innovative food and drink professionals including Diep Tran, Johno Morisano, Ashley Christensen and Mashama Bailey, directing a discussion on how progressive restaurateurs move beyond mere philanthropic giving to leverage experience and knowledge to drive social and cultural change.

For Act II, settle in for star power as the cast of When Stars Align (Gavin Kaysen, Steven D. Greene, Curtis Duffy, Diego Muñoz, Angie Mar and Charleston’s very own Sean Brock) take the stage for an intimate conversation surrounding the role and soul of Modernist Cuisine. Grab a seat and find out how these world-renowned chefs are honoring heritage ingredients while pushing culinary boundaries.
