Where’d you graduate from?
Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Possibly that would get you somewhere on the Eater Dating site. Er, maybe not so far in the real world. But if you just want to hang out with prominent food world figures and in the process learn about ingredients, knives and celebrity chefs at this three-day event, even those with less-than-stellar grade point averages can get in. That is, if there’s still space left for the event which runs March 27 to 29.
"Food University is the collaboration among Caesars Palace, philanthropist and hospitality industry leader Larry Ruvo, Food Network co-founder the ever ebullient Robin Leach and veteran culinary entertainment producer Richard Gore," trumpets a release. Okay, okay, let's get to the lineup of "participating personalities" and chefs who will be your professors: Colman Andrews, editorial director of The Daily Meal; Jeffrey Elliott, author of "The Zwilling J.A. Henckels Complete Book of Knife Skills"; Duff Goldman, star of Food Network’s “Ace of Cakes”; Frank Pellegrino Jr., owner of Rao's; Laura Werlin, acclaimed cheese expert, author of the James Beard Award-winning "All-American Cheese and Wine Book" and a few more.
