Does the ever-increasing interest in healthier foods, constant budget parameters and the added difficulty of accommodating multiple dietary needs make you feel like you’re in your latest episode of “Hell’s Kitchen”?

In this interactive MPI TEC participants worked together to create an event that feeds the needs of many while responding to challenges that test their knowledge on how to meet dietary needs safely, efficiently and deliciously.

Participants will left with a “Recipe for Success” to the dietary restrictions challenge that didn't leave them feeling like they’ve been on “The Chopping Block.”
