Massimo Bottura with Danny Bowien, Kathryn Garcia, Daniel Humm, Fabio Parasecoli and Mitchell Davis (moderator)
Do today's chefs have a greater social responsibility than ever before?
Massimo Bottura, the world renowned and influential chef, has become one of the most passionate voices on the topic of food waste and social inclusion in recent years. In 2015, he established Refettorio Ambrosiano, a community soup kitchen, to coincide with the Milan Expo. In an abandoned theater re-designed by leading Italian designers, Bottura and over 60 of his chef friends, from Ferran Adrià to René Redzepi, cooked for visitors throughout the Expo. Join Bottura, chef Danny Bowien, NYC Department of Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia, and professor Fabio Parescoli in conversation with Mitchell Davis as they share stories and recipes from this adventure — the inspiration for Bottura’s latest book, Bread is Gold. Learn tips to being more resourceful in the kitchen and be inspired to improvise and experiment more to turn humble ingredients into delicious meals at home.
