Social Gastronomy is about the power of the kitchen to change lives.
It is a growing movement of chefs who are finding meaningful ways to use our craft to support and nurture communities.
It's using our celebrity, purchasing power, and influence to build a more just and sustainable food system.
It's about providing opportunities for young cooks to grow and thrive.
It's about taking hospitality beyond the restaurant to institutions, community spaces and public policy.
As chefs, we work in the service of food, and are thus natural advocates for a world that is richer with the benefit of a more secure, nourishing & joyful relationship with food.
"The kitchen is a place where you can find something inside of you that you did not know was there." -Alice Waters
