“The conference was fabulous. … I would like special kudos to go out to the chef! The meals were truly spectacular, amazingly flavorful, and unbelievably creative. He must have gotten into ‘Disruptive Creativity’ way before most of us! The food was one of the best surprises of the week. Thank you, chef!”

“The food was OUTSTANDING — quality, preparation, presentation & service — all WELL above the norm & what I expected!”

“Some of the best vegetarian food I have had.”

“The lunch buffet food was wonderful!”

“Everything was great. The food was excellent!”

“Convention food is never very good, and I wondered how they’d fare with a vegan menu, but I wish I could get their recipes. Really, really good, and I’m not vegan!”
