Chefs Collaborative’s 7th Annual Summit, Good Food is Smart Business, took place in New York City from April 10-12th, 2016 in partnership with New York University. Together, in the heart of Greenwich Village, we explored the intersections of good food, the environment, finance, workers rights, technology, and public policy through main stage conversations with expert speakers, collaborative meals, and hands-on workshops in kitchens across New York.
The Summit convened more than 50 top food leaders and experts from across the US, including: José Andrés (ThinkFoodGroup), Rick Bayless (Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, Xoco), Kim Severson (The New York Times), Michael Cimarusti (Providence, Connie & Ted’s), Adam Danforth (Butcher, Author, Chefs Collaborative Board Member), Evan Hanczor (Egg), Michel Nischan (Wholesome Wave), Marion Nestle (New York University), and Bill Telepan (Telepan).
