Cooking the Manifesto

Food is Life Globe image

Over the last few months, a global community of chefs has been formed with the aim of working together to deliver a better food system for all.

Thus far, chefs have come together to create a Chefs’ Manifesto, a thematic framework that identifies food issues that matter most to chefs that is summarized in 8 thematic areas. A corresponding Action Plan has been developed off of the Manifesto that will act as a practical guide on how chefs can contribute to the SDGs in each of these 8 areas.

This Action Page takes this project one step further by compiling and showcasing recipes created by the participating chefs that are in line with one or more of the Manifesto’s 8 thematic areas into a single database. These recipes will promote ingredients grown with respect for earth and its oceans; the protection of biodiversity and improved animal welfare; the investment in farmer livelihoods; the reduction of waste and valuing of natural resources; the celebration of local and seasonal food; a focus on plant-based ingredients; the education on food safety and healthy diets; nutritious food that is accessible and affordable for all.

Please consider joining us by contributing your recipes and ideas to and we will look to add them to this growing group.
