A Thyme To Cook Takes on Catersource 2014 – What We Learned

2014 Catersource1


“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
― Benjamin Franklin

At the end of March, three members of our A Thyme To Cook team – Linda, Gina and Magda – flew out to Las Vegas for the 2014 edition of the CaterSource conference. Their official website describes it well: “The annual Catersource Conference & Tradeshow has a proud history as a leading educational opportunity for caterers, with dynamic presenters, nonstop networking opportunities and the most amazing parties.”

According to Linda Sample, our President here at ATTC, it’s 24-7 catering and non-stop learning! The biggest news from the event was our being honored with a 2014 CATIE Award!

I asked Linda, Gina and Magda their thoughts on the trip and what they took away from it.
