MANIFESTO

We are an incubator for budding chefs and curious gourmets, a place of experimentation, a   laboratory for cultural exchanges and
culinary discoveries. For the Love of Food (FTLOF) was born from the desire to
disrupt the hierarchy and norms of restauration with a single criterion: passion.


 
Our wishes

FTLOF is an antidote to the culture of isolation currently dictated by disappointing and potentially abusive social networks as well as home deliveries, which are too often consumed alone. We embody a responsible and borderless cuisine, inspired by the values of sharing, exchange and reciprocity, Valuing the earth and its riches by advocating local and waste-free cuisine. Defend without limit the chefs from excluded or under represented visible minorities.

 
our desires

For the Love of Food is a springboard designed to connect the reality of the culinary world with these changes and the world of restauration.  in That light, FTLOF is a living concept with new addresses emerging with varied and adapted offers which allows us to take our commitment to budding chefs to the end of its process by offering future chefs an opportunity for several months to run their own kitchen while maintaining the values of  FTLOF.
