The Slow Food Cooks’ Alliance is a network uniting cooks across the country. Cooks support local producers, influence policy and awaken eaters to the rich food culture and biodiversity of our planet.


Cooks’ Alliance members continually strive to implement the values of Slow Food in their restaurant or establishment by procuring and highlighting Ark of Taste ingredients on menus, cooking for chapter events and focusing on the ethical and environmentally friendly practices in their restaurants.


Members of the Cooks’ Alliance learn from and support each other in transforming and leveraging their kitchens and menus to change the food system for the better. The Cooks’ Alliance engages diners, producers, and restaurateurs in the Slow Food USA network.

Community engagement

Bring diners, producers, and restaurateurs into the network by participating in and engaging with Slow Food events and campaigns, both local and national. Cooks’ Alliance members inform and educate fellow cooks as well as community members on topics of Slow Food, especially as it pertains to food production and food service.
