Call for 2014 Expo Speakers

Lead a breakout session at the Taste Trekkers Food Tourism Expo.

We are looking for speakers who excel at telling the story of cuisine in a regional context.
What we're looking for:
- Cuisine tied to a specific region (e.g., 'The Seafood of Seattle'), or across regions (e.g., 'Barbecue Styles of the South')
- The culinary history of a region (e.g., 'The History of Rum in New England')
- Practical advice for planning a culinary vacation (e.g., 'How to Find Great Food in France on $30 a Day')
- Innovative food programs happening in a specific place
- Sessions about beer, wine and/or spirits welcome
- Preference given to speakers who offer samples to the audience
- Preference given to chefs (if you're not a chef, we encourage pairing up with one to lead a session)
Deadline: Sunday, June 1st, 2014.
