Every year, we invite our favorite purveyors to join us at American Made with their delicious and inventive foods. All our guests and participants love sampling the bites and learning about the various ingredients - it's definitely one of the many highlights of our event.
We open the two-day affair with an evening cocktail party on October 21st that includes flavorful hors d'oeuvres and festive drinks. This year, you have the chance to attend this fabulous event, and mingle with our editors and Honorees, past and present - just purchase your ticket to this very special part of the weekend. During our Saturday Summit, Chef Pierre Schaedelin and his team at PS Tailored Events always create a perfectly balanced menu. It's important that we offer attendees tasty and satisfying meals for breakfast, lunch and breaks - healthy, hearty food that can fuel everyone through a day packed with information, inspiration and activities. American Made ends with another reception featuring treats from local vendors here in New York City. I can't wait to try all the delectable foods during our special 5th anniversary symposium and celebration. Remember, you can order your tickets by clicking on this highlighted link. Here are photos of some of the foods we've enjoyed over the years.
All the delicious foods are, of course, American Made. These tasty breakfast lamb sliders came from the American Lamb Board. http://www.americanlamb.com
