I was excited to be able help document the Global Culinary Institutes Seattle Conference. They were a great group of people. It was so much fun to spend time and photograph Ethan Stowell, owner of 9 of Seattle's top restaurants. I also got to spend time with Tom Douglas who own's 16 amazing restaurants here in Seattle. Also, Kathy Casey at her Liquid Kitchen location. And Simon Majumdar the lead judge from the Next Iron Chef and judge of Iron Chef America and Cut Throat Kitchen. The Mission of the GCIA Culinary Combine is where the nations leading new menu developers form a network with peers and industry experts while gathering take-aways to build their brand.
