The Sterling-Rice Group Culinary Team works to create a menu that is creative, fun, and delicious. We guarantee you won’t find better food at any conference anywhere!


Which is the culmination of our year-long examination of the global foodscape, based on international scouting trips, in-depth primary research, and input from our Culinary Council, a team of 175 chefs, restauranteurs, and food experts from around the world. We hope to whet your appetite as we present tasty vignettes of what may “pop on plates” in 2018!

Thursday night, SRG is hosting a cocktail party in our Experience Design Center where the delicious food and beverage tasting continues.

Our menu will be designed by CHEF DANIEL ASHER OF RIVER AND WOODS restaurant. Chef Daniel was one of the new pioneers in the natural foods movement in the Midwest, exclusively utilizing organic & locally-grown produce, ethically-raised meats & sustainably produced ingredients. His recipes and philosophies have been featured in Bon Apetit, Gourmet, Vegetarian Times, Plate Magazine, and local news media such as 5280 Magazine, The Denver Post, DiningOut Magazine, Westword, Local Food Shift Magazine. He has been a promotional rep for sustainable companies such as Whole Foods, Lundberg Farms, Santa Cruz Organics, Green Fest and Farm Aid.Eco-conscious cooking is his passion, and the bounty of Colorado’s wonderful terroir is incredibly provocative.

It’s a chance to mingle with the speakers and other attendees and a party you don’t want to miss!
