Ambition Nutrition 2018

Bridging the gap between nutritional science and the culinary arts

This year’s theme: “Bringing It Home”

Join academic professionals, dietitians, culinary experts, and industry leaders for an interactive day filled with discussions, workshops and presentations. Ambition Nutrition 2018 will focus on nutrition in theory and practice, examining the gaps and opportunities that exist between research, education, nutrition, diet, and culinary arts.

Our theme this year is Bringing it Home, which will explore and reveal how to “bring print to plate” for your clients, patients and families. We promise an even more exceptional, tastier and engaging day! Ambition Nutrition returns on Wednesday, May 16, 2018.

Your Symposium Pass admission includes a copy of Always Delicious: Over 175 Satisfying Recipes to Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, and Keep the Weight Off Permanently by David S. Ludwig, MD, PhD, and Chef Dawn Ludwig.

Announcing Breakout Sessions

This year, attendees will choose two of these three breakout sessions to participate in at Ambition Nutrition 2018:

  • Don’t Butcher Your Grains
    Learn about different culinary techniques, such as home butchery, and navigate the nutrition and cooking of ancient grains.
  • Power Your Life With Plants
    Delve into the nutritional properties of plants and offer easy instructions for homemade plant-based drinks.
  • Going Nuts for Cheese
    Explore the decadent world of traditional cheeses and the rising popularity of nut cheeses. How do they compare from taste to nutrition?

Ambition Nutrition attendees will also be treated to a special luncheon sponsored by Foods & Wines from Spain, featuring Spanish wines, an almuerzon — tapas, cheeses, nuts, and olives — and your choice of entrée:

  • Traditional Vegetarian Paella
  • Cedar Plank Salmon with Maple and Smoky Red Pepper Glaze
