The SFM Chef’s Alliance was created in 2015 to provide information and education for chefs, cooks, caterers, and artisans in Miami, and to offer support and provide community between our culinarians and the people who produce our food. Chef’s Alliance intends to create a collaboration and inspire more communication between chefs and farmers, and to connect the dots within our culinary community to create stronger ties and easier accessibility for food produced in the Slow Food way; Good, Clean, and Fair. We strive to elevate the dining scene in Miami by offering this support and inspiring dialogue, assisting however we can to bring more locally sourced and sustainably farmed and raised products to the Miami marketplace.
This movement is fairly new to Miami, but for years, conscientious chefs from across the globe have pledged themselves as Slow Food allies. Whether practicing their art in Michelin starred restaurants, food trucks, neighborhood cafes or festival tents, these chefs show their support and commitment through scratch cooking, utilization of locally sourced products, and structuring their businesses in a way that speaks to sustainability and environmental consciousness. We honor the chefs in Miami who are already on this Slow Food track, and we aim to assist those culinarians who are just learning, and who strive to become a Slow Food recognized chef or producer. Chef’s Alliance is here to help- beginners to experts- however we can to elevate the farm-to-table experience here, in South Florida.
