This month's topic: 

Tim West
Featured Guest:

Tim West

Cosemble; Food Hackathon    

Tim West is a Slow Food chef turned Social Entrepreneur. Having learned from his grandfather, Arch West (inventor of Doritos), he graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 2005. He has cooked his way from the St. Regis Hotel in New York, to the Facebook headquarters in California, where he entered the world of food and technology entrepreneurship. 

Before arriving in California, Tim worked and studied Sustainable Food Systems and Social Food Movements at the University of Massachusetts. In 2009, he started the UMass Permaculture project and organized a team to write their Climate Action Plan to achieve carbon neutrality in food.

In 2012, Tim won the StartupBus competition with custom cereal concept Cerealize; this experience helped him realize that he can feed more people with a cell phone and a computer than a chef knife and a flame. Inspired by his experiences (and frustrated with how some of the worlds brightest minds were spending their time building games that throw birds at walls), Tim co-created Food Hackathon - with the purpose of building networks, cross-pollinating ideas, and creating products and tools that spark innovation in the food+tech ecosystem.

Tim is now bridging the online/offline worlds by cofounding Cosemble, a social platform for events (Food, Music, Art, Tech), and is planning more Food Hackathons. His ultimate dream is to raise a family and to work with the United Nations to use food to build community, create jobs and keep the peace.





Featured Chef: Kyle Anderson



Chef Kyle Anderson, a native of Omaha, Nebraska, graduated from Johnson & Wales University. Chef Kyle has worked in some of the greatest restaurants garnering Mobil 5 Star, AAA 5 Diamond, and Michelin 3 Star Awards including Daniel Boulad’s eponymous Daniel in NYC and Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago.
After working in the fine dining world for many years, Chef Kyle decided he had enough and wanted to open a restaurant for everyone to enjoy gourmet food at reasonable prices. Everything at SLOW is prepared using the same quality ingredients, the same cooking techniques, and the same meticulously thought-out menu as a fine dining restaurant, but without the waiters, the designer dishes, and the pretentiousness that comes with the high-end dining scene.
