The culinary product is a very important part of any region’s creative economy. Yet, I believe, it is often overlooked. As Jackson in specific and Mississippi as a whole concentrate on both promoting the creative economy and building a culinary product, I believe we must position our restaurants and chefs as valuable components of the former.
Monday, June 16th at 7PM, I’ll be participating in a Twitter forum through the Mississippi Innovation Economy series. They’ve hosted forums on issues from polymer science to technology issues. Making sure we include culinary innovation as a real contributor to entrepreneurial efforts, I look forward to being the first “food” oriented guest on the thread.
You can follow along at my twitter handle of @ChefTomRamsey, via theirs of @MSInnovationEco, or use the hashtag #MSInnov8. Tweet you then!
