Food & Culinary Professionals

Food is our common ground, a universal experience. - James Beard

Happy New Year! Whether you make resolutions or not, we hope you resolve to continue to join us this year for dialogue, networking, and to learn, whether it’s through our newsletters, our webinars, our online resources from our subgroups, or each other via our EMLs or in person at FCP Connects or events across the country.

FCP has a 20 year history of bringing food science, in depth knowledge of food, nutrition, and culinary activation as well as the joy of celebrating all that food means to us. Our trips to Italy this year are a special opportunity to connect internationally, and the planning for the 2019 FCP Workshop is well underway. If you haven’t taken advantage of the fun and activation the recipe contests provide, make sure to check those out this year, too! Recipes are a critical component to our ability to help our audiences activate on the latest food and nutrition science and information. Not to mention it’s fun to get in the kitchen and get your creative juices flowing!

The turn of the calendar is a great mental reset button. May your year turn out to be fun, productive, and healthy for you and yours!
