WHAT MAKES CHEFSFEED INDIE WEEK TICK?
No crowds clamoring for a tiny sample plate, served by a tired looking chef with dead shark eyes—just unparalleled face time with the country’s most compelling culinary talent over twelve stunning courses.
ChefsFeed Indie Week is a national dinner series fueled by the energy and style of standout food cities coast to coast, and everywhere in between. Beloved by chefs and guests alike for its genuine vibe and high-end service with a relaxed ethos, CFIW turns an already incredibly dynamic creative experience into a uniquely communal one.
Each event features a curated crew of 24 chefs (multiple James Beard Foundation Award and Food & Wine Best New Chef winners among them) coming together to host once-in-a-lifetime dining experiences in each city. Enjoy your meal a few feet from the choreography of the kitchen, and interact with each chef tableside as they explain the finer points of flavor and philosophy.
It’s hospitality as it should be: unmatched food and drink, total connection, and no pretense.
Because ChefsFeed Indie Week is as much about our chefs as it is the guest experience, it’s completely free to attend as a participant. With help from our sponsors, we’ve taken care of airfare, hotel accommodations, food costs, and a full of itinerary of events—including culinary tours of restaurants, bars, and influential spots in the local food scene.
So much of kitchen life is about what’s in front of you; CFIW is a chance to stretch your legs, compare notes with your peers across North America, and renew your creative outlook.
