CARE’s Chef Under 30 2019 was created in collaboration with three-times Michelin starred chef Norbert Niederkofler and with Paolo Ferretti, both founders of the “CARE’s – The ethical Chef Days”. It aims to promote new ideas in the kitchen and a gastronomic culture based on local products, environmental sustainability, respectful use of resources, waste awareness and a fair value for money.
