Project Overview

The Maybach Foundation is pleased to announce a 2013 Culinary Arts Project, including Sustainable Food Leadership.

Gifted Chefs and their mentor teams will guide gifted individuals from around the world in pursuit of their dreams. The mentorships can follow one of three approaches: (1) sustainable food community leadership, (2) sustainable food growth, from sea or land to table and (3) traditional culinary arts.

The Project is expected to last six (6) months and is based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Travel costs, housing and a small stipend will be provided, for a total value of $25,000 USD per protégé. Project elements can include kitchen experiences/rotations; fishing/ farming/ nutrition training; community leadership; personal and business development and a community service engagement.

Applicants must be between 18 and 30 years old, have demonstrated unusual talent and have basic culinary skills and training if applying for a traditional culinary arts project. They must also demonstrate they have faced adversity in pursuit of their culinary dreams and present a vision of what they propose to do at the conclusion of the mentorship that will have a positive impact on their community. The Applicants may be nominated by Third Parties or self nominated.  The application deadline is May 31, 2013.
