The fourth edition of Care’s – The Ethical Chef’s Days, an Italian event that brought together 30 of the best chefs from around the world, took place from 28 to 31 March. The event was born with the aim of promoting an ethical and sustainable approach to food and to talk about eco-sustainable practices even outside the kitchen. From this year, however, Care’s has begun to change shape to become a real campus for star chefs, for four days a year the perfect opportunity to get together, found a community, network, spread a message as simple as it is disruptive: take a little bit more care.
This famous event finally came to be what the chef Norbert Niederkofler, three Michelin stars, and the promoter of the festival Paolo Ferretti always wanted: first of all an opportunity for chefs to exchange ideas and projects, techniques and not to copy recipes.
Show cooking has been abolished, limited public and presence of journalists, all to focus attention on the real protagonists: the 30 chefs (including 25 with Michelin Stars) who have arranged to meet in Brunico to cook but above all to talk, get to know each other and discuss.
At the Plan de Corones, above Brunico, stands one of the Messner Mountain Museum headquarters, dedicated to the history of mountaineering and designed by Zaha Hadid. Within walking distance, the Lumen Photography Museum and the Alpinn refuge, with the kitchen signed by Niederkofler. Care’s – The Ethical Chef’s Days has shown how so many small, daily actions, to change one’s way of being a chef, entrepreneur, consumer, can have a global impact.
