This panel will look at the country’s original celeb chefs and restauranteurs, including Ella Brennan, Auguste Escoffier, André Soltner and James Beard. These culinary luminaries changed the course of dining history and are directly responsible for how we still eat today. That’s not to mention creating numerous famous dishes. The panel celebrates and discusses why many of these pioneers are forgotten in this most recent culinary boom.
