“Food is everything we are. It is an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It’s inseparable from those from the get-go.” ― Anthony Bourdain
This Thursday kicks off The Gathering at The Factory, and next week, we welcome the community for the first annual Project Threadways Symposium. During these much-anticipated events, we share The Factory with chefs (and friends) as they prepare various dinners, lunches, and small bites. This year, we welcome Bill Smith, Angie Mosier, Lisa Donovan, and Cheetie Kumar, along with our own Factory Café team. In honor of these chefs, this week, we look back at some of the chefs who have cooked with us over the years (and share a few favorite recipes).
