The fourth annual MAD blowout is due to take place on August 24 and 25 in Copenhagen, with Alex Atala guest-curating a lineup of chefs and others tackling the question “What is cooking?” in all kinds of deep and perhaps less-deep ways. Rather than opening the floodgates at once and causing an industry-level feeding frenzy, the folks behind the chef-centric think tank are creating a kind of request-line period for potential attendees, who are instructed to sign up online here beginning April 7. The site goes dark once again on May 20, and those getting in will be notified on May 26. The cost of attending is 2,500 DKK, or about $460 USD; breakfast and lunch are included. [MAD, Earlier]
