Upcoming Culinary Learning Journey

Taste and Toast the Texas Hill Country: An ICAEF Culinary Learning Journey
November 4-8, 2018

Often considered the heart and soul of the "Great State of Texas," the uniquely charming Texas Hill Country offers cultural and natural experiences that attract millions of visitors annually. Pack those boots and hats, or buy them while you are here, then hop on the bus to join us for this fast paced fun filled experience as we "two-step" through the countryside.  Rolling hills, sparkling rivers, quaint cities and towns, crafted cuisine and boutique beverages will wet your appetite for a return adventure to the Texas Hill Country.
