Keep making history

This Black History Month, we’re shining a light on a conversation between three chefs who share a single mission: to pave a path forward. They talk about food, representation, opportunities, and the future. Watch their conversation to celebrate a history of inspiration and a future of aspiration.

Pathways to Excellence

We celebrate the leaders who lift as they climb. The trailblazers who inspire the next generation. And the chefs who honor the past in the present.
