As part of Vetri Cucina‘s 20th anniversary, VCP co-founder Marc Vetri has been inviting chefs from across the country and around the world to collaborate with him for special dinners. Once of those guests was renowned Chef Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana, one of Italy’s most celebrated restaurants.

In addition to being the leading figure in modern Italian gastronomy, Bottura also founded Food for Soul to empower communities to fight against food waste in the interest of social inclusion and individual wellbeing.

Since he was unable to make it out to a Mobile Teaching Kitchen visit, we decided to bring the Mobile Teaching Kitchen to him! We were honored to share our mission and program with him, especially since his philanthropic work is so inspiring.
