This is our 34th event & it's one of our most special events ever. We are so excited to share two technologists turned Chefs! We will hear from both chefs who took a complete 180 in their career, why they left their previous work, & how they managed to become Executive Chef at SUGARCANE raw bar grill (Brooklyn, NY) & Chef & Owner of a restaurant business, Shuraku, in NYC. Following the talk, they will actually show how they cook the food & we get to eat the appetizers! :)
