Live it Up at These Celebrations!

Grand Tasting Gala

  • Following the Expo, the Association hosts its annual party, the Grand Tasting Gala. Join the Iowa hospitality industry for a night of culinary tourism and mastery. Celebrate, sample, sip and savor cuisine and beverages from chefs and vendors across the state. Taste all of the dishes of the 2019 Culinary Competition and cast a People’s Choice vote for your favorite. Enjoy wine samples, live music, and more.

Celebrating Excellence

  • Directly after the Grand Tasting Gala   please join us to celebrate the best of the best at our annual Celebrating Excellence Awards Ceremony.
  • This celebration is a wonderful opportunity for our members and friends to get together and honor those who often go unrecognized but who are so important to the success of the foodservice industry!
