Two weeks ago, I photographed the 2007 Chefs Congress in New York City. All the big wigs and usual suspects in food attended, and there were 3 days of culinary presentations. For a summary of the event, please click here. For highlights, click here.

Attendees and presenters included Seiji Yamamoto of Ryugin in Tokyo, Daniel Boulud, Wylie Dufresne of wd-50 in NYC, Dan Barber of Blue Hill, Joël Robuchon of L'Atelier in Paris, David Burke of David Burke & Donatella in NYC, David Bouley, Pichet Ong of P*Ong, Johnny Iuzzini of Jean Georges, Will Goldfarb of Room 4 Dessert and Elizabeth Falkner of Citizen Cake in San Francisco to name a few.

Accompanying the chef presentations were workshops on wine, kitchen equipment, knife skills and mixology.

The event took place on the 52nd floor of a building bordering the WTC- incredible views to say the least. Here are a few photos I took:
