Mar 13, 2017

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

This panel explores America's obsession with cooking shows and how social media is revolutionizing that format. From Julia Child's groundbreaking - The French Chef - to the democratization of culinary content by YouTube, we'll walk through the roots of food entertainment, where it is now, and what's in store for the future.

For instance, how streaming platforms such as Facebook Live and Periscope are changing the rules. They literally bring viewers into the kitchen's of home chefs and celebrity chefs alike. The culinary curious can interact with the content creators in an unprecedented way, making it the most accessible cooking format out there.
