The International Dairy Deli Bakery Association has announced the main stage lineup for the association’s flag ship event on June 4-6 in Anaheim, California.
“Announcing our main stage lineup always comes with such anticipation and I am honored to make the official announcement,” said Whitney Atkins, VP of marketing for IDDBA. “Without further ado, IDDBA will welcome Padma Lakshmi, Alton Brown and Tom Hanks to center stage.”
Padma Lakshmi is an Emmy-nominated food expert, television producer, host and a New York Times best-selling author.
Lakshmi is the creator of the Hulu series Taste the Nation (winner of the 2021 Critics Choice Award) and serves as host and executive producer of Bravo’s two-time Emmy-winning series Top Chef.
A Peabody Award-winning cook, Brown created, wrote and hosted “Good Eats” as a leader of the first Food Network generation, revolutionizing culinary programming.
Brown, a best-selling author, film maker and TV personality, will share with attendees how he creates food and culinary entertainment and experiences that are enjoyed by millions around the globe.
Hanks, an award-winning actor, producer, director and writer, needs no introduction to a stage. He recently debuted his novel “The Making Of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece” on May 9. He is also the creator of Hanx For Our Troops, a consumer packaged goods company with 100 percent of the profits benefiting veterans and their families.
