Christian Puglisi Chef, Denmark

Get On Your Knees (and Bring Gastronomy with You)

As chef Christian Puglisi’s restaurant community, Relae, in Copenhagen expanded, he realized he should not be growing out, but growing deeper–so he started the Farm of Ideas to grow his own produce. At this MAD Monday, he recounts his experience starting the farm and how truly facing the high cost of producing food impacted how he values it. It is up to restaurants, up to chefs, he believes, to get down on their knees and understand their produce because they have a unique responsibility to help people understand the true value of food and redefine what gastronomy is in the process.

 

This talk is part of the MAD Monday event on cities, soil, and the true value of food in Copenhagen on October 31, 2019. Typically convening on Mondays, the traditional day of rest for restaurants, MAD Monday is a conversation series that tackles the issues that matter most in food, inviting anyone interested in food and hospitality to gather, expand their thinking, and discuss issues of relevance.
