Trashed at Terroir

Trashed at Terroir

The 13th Terroir Symposium (May 6, 2019) is looking for culinary teams that know their trash.

We are looking for 10 chefs/culinary teams who are passionate about minimizing food waste and are up to the challenge of creating a unique dish out of ingredients that would have otherwise been TRASHED.


Execute “Trashed at Terroir” zero-waste lunch program at the 2019 Terroir Symposium, including the opportunity to introduce your dish and the ingredients that you have rescued from the trash on the Main Stage

Trashed at Terroir will feature dishes created from unexpected ingredients, ingredients that are often considered trash, served up by renowned culinary teams who are currently implementing food waste practices of their own.

We are also proud to announce a partnership with Second Harvest and who will help us bring our zero food waste initiative full circle by helping us donate any leftover food items to those in need.
