Starting mid-January, one of the biggest culinary event series in Colorado will commence at The Broadmoor Hotel. Over the course of 2016, legends of the food and beverage industry will gather at the hotel to share their talents with the lucky few. This culinary event series will initially be broken into five individual weekends, each featuring a specific theme and a set of experts in the field.
Every weekend will involve delicious food, unique drinks, enlightening dialog, new friends, individualized experiences, and lots of fun! The purpose of the Moveable Feast is not to bring in as many attendees as possible, but to create a close, intimate setting in which attendees can feel relaxed, comfortable, and ready to enjoy fresh flavors and inspiring discussion. For this reason, each of our events is capped, and it is important for you to reserve your spots now. You won’t want to miss a single one of these weekends!
Two night package includes:
Accommodations for Friday and Saturday nights, Friday opening reception, Saturday morning seminar, Saturday afternoon seminar, Saturday evening dinner, Sunday brunch.
Guests enjoying Taste and Savor last year!
Happy 10th Anniversary, Summit!
