With two days to go until the event, Rene Redzepi’s MAD Symposium has finally released the program for the 2012 conference, and dear lord there are a ton of really great speakers scheduled — many of whom you’ll recognize.
This weekend’s two-day symposium, which Redzepi calls an “open, collaborative forum dedicated to the changing role of the chef” will host chefs giving seminars that sound like book titles, a selection of which you’ll find below:
- Dan Barber: “The Scent of Wheat”
- Shinichiro Takagi: “Asking the Winds And The Seasons”
- Ferran Adria: “Do I Have An Appetite For Creativity?”
- Mission Chinese Food (which we assume means Danny Bowien): “The Audacity of Hope…and Szechuan Peppercorn”
- Wylie Dufresne: “An Appetite For Knowledge”
- Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver: “Appetite? Ah, Hm — Yes”
- Roderick Sloan: “Appetite: The Lone Wolf” (we have a winner for best named seminar, folks)
These books can be found in your local library, if your local library were actually a giant conference center in Copenhagen and the books were actually seminars.
Videos from last year’s MAD Symposium can be found here.
