Learn and Grow with the Great Women of the Culinary World
Renowned chefs, television personalities, authors, restaurateurs and culinary experts join us each year to share their knowledge and experience during our National Conference.
Special thanks to the many talented speakers, chefs, and presenters, who traveled from near and far to join us in Seattle, May 6-8, 2017 – Nina Curtis, Maria Hines, Elizabeth Falkner, Kim Bartmann, Mary Wagstaff, Ana Kinkaid, Kathy Casey, Nina Buty, Leslie Mackie, Veena Prasad, Michael-Ann Rowe, Claire Menck, Deborah Harris, Carol Bentel, Ph. D., and many, many more.
“The WCR conference excels at covering all aspects of the food and hospitality industry: master classes and speakers; camaraderie and memorable conversation; insight into industry innovation. It celebrates and validates the strength and success of women in our profession. I come away feeling re-energized and this, in turn, I take into the classroom with new intention and a fresh perspective.”

Without exaggeration, the WCR conferences have changed my life! Thought provoking and inspiring, so many incredibly talented individuals that I now call friends. They and what we work for, remind me every day to think big, outside the box, and that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!
