I teach high school in the city and are in the middle of a unit on food, and how food works in the city.

We would LOVE to do a session with a restaurant or chef where we eat lunch, and then have a conversion with the preparer of food Do you know anybody who might be willing to have us for lunch, and also speak with our students?

Ideally, this person:
Is willing to engage in a dialogue with high school students.

Is mindful, and can speak about the origin of her ingredients.

Can speak about the challenges/rewards of working in the food industry in New York.

Is willing to consider the idea that preparing a meal as an act of authorship in which something is communicated.

We are looking to have lunch somewhere in the city. We can pay around $20 per person for 30 students and 3-4 teachers. Would love some ideas! Who are the fun, mindful chefs we should visit?
