Ask Chefs Anything

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 Alice Waters, Brandon Jew, Charles Bililies, David Kinch, David Nayfeld, Dominique Crenn, Gabriela Cámara, Gilbert Pilgram and Nate Norris, Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski and more — will auction off 30 minutes of their time to share their favorite recipes, cooking tips, and really anything you want to ask them!

With the generous help of The Chefs' Warehouse, the funds raised will provide groceries for vulnerable immigrant households connected to ROC The Bay and living in The Bay Area. 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

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.
