Cook It Raw: Bringing Together the Global Market

Cook It Raw: Bringing Together the Global Market

Forging ideas between chefs, farmers, food producer and academics to explore the possibilities of cuisine.

Cook It Raw brings together 15 international top chefs in remote areas to explore socio-environmental issues through cuisine. Some chefs to note include Albert Adrià (41º Experience, Barcelona), Ben Shewry (Attica, Melbourne) and April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig, NYC) The chefs then show off their artistic creativity and craft spectacular dishes for their guests. This revolutionary concept will change the way we look at food and where it comes from on a global scale.

The experience in Charleston gave us all an incredible opportunity to showcase Canadian ingredients, experience Carolina ingredients and meet chefs from all over the world. Those kinds of relationships can only inspire us and give us the push to make the Toronto food scene more groundbreaking and vibrant.” Ted Corrado

Hunting and foraging their own ingredients is a way for the chefs to reconnect with nature and build friendships. The true beauty behind Cook it Raw, is the dialogue it creates between the chefs, foodies and the culinary community. Kind of like us! At Branding & Buzzing we go beyond the traditional marketing approach, building communities with our clients.
