2017 Programming Podcast
“Embrace uncomfortable topics and amplify unheard voices; that is our agenda,” Chefs Collaborative Board Chair Piper Davis told the stalwart souls gathered in Atlanta last September for Chefs Collaborative’s 2017 Summit.
As Hurricane Irma barreled north through Florida, Davis rallied the Summit audience with a speech that marked the beginning of a new chapter for our 24-year old organization. Chefs Collaborative will be addressing the difficult challenges facing chefs and food professionals – immigration, economic inequality, and white privilege – along with our traditional issues of seasonality, organics, antibiotic misuse, regenerative farming, and food waste.
With the dynamic Atlanta food community as a beacon for what is possible, and Kim Severson of The New York Times as our emcee, Chefs Collaborative Members and guests celebrated our history while building the power of our community by taking responsibility for our future at an event that can only be described as awe-inspiring. And, our friends at Heritage Radio Network captured it in podcast form for you to enjoy!
