Workshop Description

We start our first morning with visits to suppliers and processors in the Hunts Point neighborhood—the gateway for 4.5M lbs of meat, produce and fish every year—to peel back the layers of the supply chain and discover overlooked ingredients that are typically destined for compost or landfill. Site visits include Baldor Specialty Foods, Gotham Seafood and Mosner Family Brands.

With a night to mull over possible new uses, chefs reconvene at the Institute of Culinary Education for an immersive hands-on cooking activity. Everyone will get to taste the creations, share insights, and commit to specific actions they can take upon their return to their own kitchens.

Timing

This two day workshop runs on Tuesday 5/21 8:00am - 12:30pm and Wednesday 5/22 8:00am - 12:30pm. Transportation for site visits is included.

About Workshop Facilitator: Chef Adam Kaye
Chef/Co-Founder of The Spare Food Co.

Adam has cooked in and led some of the most influential kitchens in DC and NY. For the past eighteen years, he worked side by side with Dan Barber at Blue Hill, as Chef, Culinary Director, educator, and co-creator of the phenomenally successful wastED pop-up restaurant concepts in New York and London.
