Featured IFBC Speaker: Flavor & The Menu Managing Editor Katie Ayoub
Katie Ayoub is managing editor of Flavor & The Menu, a national foodservice publication that specializes in flavor trends. The magazine's annual Top 10 Trends issue gives chefs a primer on emerging trends and how to leverage them, aiming to inspire recipe innovation. Flavor & The Menu focuses on flavor because that's what drives menus and entices diners. The magazine is a trusted authority on flavor trends.
Previously, Katie was editor in chief of Sizzle magazine, contributing editor to The National Culinary Review and managing editor of Chef magazine. She has also written for Culinology, Foodservice Director, Restaurant Business and Pizza Today. Katie has been avidly following and reporting on food trends for 15 years. Growing up, she was lucky enough to be immersed in Latin culture, living in Puerto Rico, Mexico and Panama. A graduate of Northwestern University, she and her husband made their home in Chicago for 10 years. After her son was born, her family moved up to Toronto for eight years. Now, she and her husband Mischa, as well as her two pretty wonderful kids, call the Chicago suburbs home.
Katie will co-host a session on Food Trends at this year's IFBC.
