On today's episode of All in the Industry®, host Shari Bayer has a special “On the Road” edition on the Philly Chef Conference at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, and South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami Beach, Florida. Shari tips off the show from the Philly Chef Conference, which took place March 1, 2020, with her PR tip, followed by a live broadcast with Katie Button, Executive Chef and CEO of Katie Button Restaurants, which includes Cúrate Bar de Tapas and Button & Co. Bagels in Asheville, NC. A three-time James Beard Award nominee, Katie honed her craft in the kitchens of some of the world's best chefs, most notably Ferran Adrià and José Andrés, before venturing out to open her own restaurant. In the years since, she’s received numerous accolades, including Food & Wine's 2015 Best New Chefs; Cúrate as one of Food & Wine’s "40 Most Important Restaurants of the Past 40 Years," and one of Esquire’s "Most Important Restaurants of the Decade." In 2016, she released her first cookbook, Cúrate: Authentic Spanish Food from an American Kitchen, and in 2019, debuted Asheville’s culinary festival Chow Chow as board president. Through it all, Katie continues to challenge the industry standard, building comprehensive benefits to create a sustainable work environment for her living wage-certified restaurant group. Following, Shari gives her recap of the 19th annual Food Network and Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One, which took place February 19-23, 2020 in South Beach, Florida. To date, the Festival has raised more than $30 million for the School with its mission to EAT. DRINK. EDUCATE. Shari also shares her solo dining experience at Philadelphia's K'far, an all-day café and bakery inspired by the food, energy and warmth of Israeli bakeries that chef Mike Solomonov experienced at his very first kitchen job outside of Tel Aviv.
