FoodWorx 2015: February 7: 11:20AM: Food and Travel

FoodWorx is heading to outer space this year as David Wilson exposes the opportunities and challenges in the newest culinary frontier: space tourism. Space has become the next big tourism frontier, and as the technology now exists to get us into space, we have to consider what tourism in outer space will look like. One of the biggest factors in this new market is what food and drink options will be available for space travelers. For anyone interested in exploring innovative culinary markets, this talk is one you can’t afford to miss. 


A Day at FoodWorx

FoodWorx – an exceptional event bringing together everyone who loves food to discuss issues, network with experts, collaborate with other passionate foodies and inspire the future of the food and drink we love so much. FoodWorx is one varied day of expert speakers, demos, tastings and film clips from various segments of the industry as well as a Marketplace full of interesting new products to explore.

FoodWorx takes place on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at the World Forestry Center in Portland, Oregon, one of the world’s most exciting food cities. FoodWorx will also be broadcasted online for those who cannot make the trip to Portland.


Pre-FoodWorx Dinner Event With Maggie Michaels

Join us for dinner Friday, January 16, 2015, as we gear up for FoodWorx with great food, insightful conversation and a discussion led by Portland’s own Maggie Michaels. Maggie is the force behind the Curriculum of Cuisine, and will talk about how we can get healthy eating back into our high schools.

The event will be held at the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM)’s Charlee’s Kitchen in Portland. Dinner will be prepared by Salt Fire & Time’s Chef Tressa Yellig and NCNM’s Julie Briley. Between the food, the conversation and the opportunity for exclusive networking, this is an event you won’t want to miss.
