The event will be hosted by the Travel Channel's Adam Richman, and other culinary celebs will be in attendance too, like Kerry Heffernan of "Top Chef Masters," former Bon Appetit editor Barbara Fairchild, "The Next Iron Chef: Redemption" competitor Eric Greenspan, and "Bitchin' Kitchen" host Nadia Giosia.
