FoodWorx

8:30 am-4:30 pm., Tuesday January 15 | $129.
Gerding Theater
128 NW 11th Ave.
 
Futurist food conference FoodWorx won’t feature any of Star Trek’s food replicators—yet. In fact, the conference is less about molecular gastronomy than the changing food-business climate, from farm-to-table supply chains, to starting an artisan food business, to ethical restaurants. There’ll be plenty of tables to explore, from Portland and around the country. IBM’s Brian David Johnson speaking about the future of food and computers is about as sci-fi as it’ll get, apart from the iPad mini being given away. Renowned food critic Karen Brooks will be on hand, patting Portland’s food scene on the back and promoting her sunny new book, The Mighty Gastropolis: Portland. Discounted tickets for I Love to Eat, a play about Portland chef and writer James Beard, will be available for conferencegoers.

Where: Gerding Theater
