Worlds of Flavor Conference: Flavors of the Mediterranean

What happens when hundreds of chefs, culinary professionals and journalists descend on Napa's Culinary Institute for three days of intense discussion, demonstrations, food-trend forecasting and eating? You've got the annual World's of Flavor Conference.
This year focuses on the Mediterranean cooking -- Italy, Spain, Greece and the fascinating flavors of the Middle East. I'll be blogging throughout the day today (Friday) and Saturday. See what the food world is talking about.
