Would you expect cafeteria food to be even more delicious and healthier than your Mom’s?
Bon Appetit Management, an on-site restaurant company that prepares food for 400 locations including University of San Francisco, MIT, the Getty Museum, and Yahoo!, makes food from scratch using local ingredients. Their commitment to sustainability, health, and reducing the carbon footprint is remarkable. Watch the video and drool.
I first met Fedele Bauccio, Bon Appetit’s co-founder, at “Cooking for Solutions”, an extraordinary annual event at the Monterey Bay Aquarium (Bon Appetit is a primary sponsor). The gathering, now in its eighth year, brings together celebrity chefs (Thomas Keller and Alton Brown), renowned wineries (Benziger, Chappellet, and Sanford wineries), press (NY Times, Time, and Gourmet Magazine), and the general public. The two-day event of non-stop information panels, cooking demonstrations, and signature gala celebration is devoted to raising awareness and discovering how to protect the health of the soil, water, and ocean wildlife. And it’s FUN!!!
