Futuring Food Systems: A Seat at the Chef's Table


No one knows food- and the food system- like a chef. In this panel discussion, we bring top culinary chefs out from their kitchens and onto the SXSW stage to discuss systemic challenges, opportunities and innovations in food. Pull up a seat at the Chef's Table for a conversation centered around taste, and an exploration of industry sustainability and inclusive food systems, as we reimagine the future of food. From the historical roots of a dish to the kitchen of tomorrow, modernized food-culture, ingredients and the hospitality industry, food is at the center of it all.
