Ask Chefs Anything
Please join us next in Philadelphia! May 13th through 17th you will have the opportunity to bid on the next round of incredible chefs and industry taste makers in Philly! www.32auctions.com/askchefsanythingphilly
Follow us on instagram: @askchefsanything
Immigrant workers in the food industry have been serving us for decades. They are now left with no jobs or unemployment benefits. It's our turn to serve them.
Chefs and industry tastemakers from across the city, including Eric Ripert, Ignacio Mattos, Enrique Olvera, Alison Roman, Jeremiah Stone, Dan Barber, Christina Tosi, Danny Bowien, Gail Simmons and more will auction off 30 minutes of their time to share their favorite recipes and cooking tips.
With the generous help of Chefs' Warehouse, the funds raised will provide groceries for 250 vulnerable immigrant households connected to the Mercy Center and living in the South Bronx. This initiative will next be replicated in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and other key cities in America.
When the auction closes, each winner will receive an email from the organizers to coordinate the call with their elected chef.
Calls will take place over Zoom; the organizers will create that URL and share it with the winner and chef.
During your call with you will be able to #AskChefsAnything and yes we mean anything! So get started thinking about all the things you have always wanted to know about your favorite Chefs!
About Ask Chefs Anything
Gaeleen Quinn, founder of Q&A Hospitality consulting and the Bogota Food & Wine Festival, pulled together the initiative with strategy & design consultancy Polonsky & Friends as a way to give back to the immigrant workforce that is crucial to the restaurant industry. These hard working individuals, who work the longest hours and are often doing the hardest tasks; they are now left with no jobs and no unemployment benefit, struggling to put food on their plates and fearing to get sick without any support from the government.
