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 Belinda Chang, Bill Kim, Diana Davila, Erick Williams, Jason Hammel, Jeff Mauro, Joe Flamm, Lamar Moore, Rick Bayless, Sarah Grueneberg, Stephanie Izard and more will auction off 30 minutes of their time to share their favorite recipes and cooking tips.
With the generous help of The Chefs' Warehouse, the funds raised will provide groceries for vulnerable immigrant households connected to ROC and living in Chicago. This initiative will next be replicated in
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
The #AskChefsAnything campaign was launched in April of 2020 by Gaeleen Quinn, founder of Q&A Hospitality consulting and the Bogota Food & Wine Festival and Anna Polonsky of Polonsky & Friends to raise awareness and funds for the community most impacted by the COVID crisis within the US restaurant world: the immigrant workers. The enterprise was so successful in New York City that satellite fundraisers have been held in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Miami, St. Louis, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Nashville and Houston cumulatively raising over $180,000, enabling us to deliver 165,000 meals. In September, #AskChefsAnything's first international edition was held to benefit those in desperate need in Beirut, Lebanon, which was roiled by an explosion that killed, injured and displaced hundreds of thousands of people and destroyed the city’s buildings and infrastructures.
