A World-Class Culinary Experience

As a global pasta brand, we take a lot of pride in putting together world-class experiences for our partners. We’re thrilled to be reuniting with the legendary Chef John Folse for our signature “Modern Casual” culinary retreat down in Louisiana. We know culinarians need a key ingredient to fuel their creativity and inspiration – the chance to step outside of the daily grind with other chefs, seeing, tasting and cooking together.  

To that end, we at Barilla are putting together an educational event with our dear friend Chef John Folse in Louisiana this September 25-28. The theme is “Southern Hospitality, Louisiana Flavor” and it’s an invitation-only, all-expenses-paid culinary retreat for a select group of R&D Chefs. Our program includes workshops and hands-on cooking with the foods of Louisiana’s “Seven Nations” – including a special presentation from the Native Americans of Louisiana. With the amazing John Folse as our guide and partner we’ll take excursions to local food producers and restaurants, immerse ourselves in Southern foodways. All aimed at giving our attendees inspiration and ideas to adapt to their menus in multi-unit and high-volume foodservice. 

If you’ve been reading this and would like to be considered for an invitation, please contact your Barilla representative or drop us a line at [email protected] to let us know. Space is limited!
