IACP preview event in Seattle

This time, it's personal.

For those of you who know me, I spend a lot of time working with the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP). I volunteer as the head of the Food Writers, Editors & Publishers section, and this year agreed to be on the programming committee for the annual conference in Portland.

Honestly, it's been a lot of work. Sometimes, it's hard to justify doing so much work for free. But then, I look at what we've changed and put together and it's all worth it. If you haven't checked out the conference this year, read more. I'm personally delighted with the revamped Culinary Book Fair. (I even came up with the new name. Yay!)

I'd love to personally share with you what we've put together as part of a special networking event in Monday, February 22nd. Whether you're a culinary veteran, author, newly minted food blogger, student or even someone contemplating a career-change to follow a passion in the food world, maybe the conference in April may be worthwhile for you.

Why not come find out? You don't need to be a member, past or present to attend the preview. Details below. Space is limited.

Time: 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday February 22nd

Where: Cicchetti Kitchen & Bar, 121 E. Boston St., Seattle (behind Serafina)

: $25 for IACP members, $30 for non-members (includes family-style service of Cicchetti treats and some donated wine; other wine, cocktails and beverages no-host)

RSVP: Space is limited; please RSVP asap to Cynthia Nims at or 206-935-2109.

Pre-payment is requested. Please send checks, payable to Cynthia Nims, to: Cynthia Nims, 3731 SW Rose St., Seattle, WA 98126 (or send your payment to me via at Paypal and I'll hand over the funds to Cynthia.) Hope to see you there.
