Keynote - Jenny Dorsey

Chef Jenny Dorsey is a professional chef, food writer, speaker, and social entrepreneur based in Los Angeles. She uses food to express the full range of human emotions and social commentary about the world around us. Jenny describes her mission as using culinary arts as a platform to evoke introspection, empathy, and real emotion. You can read more about her on her website. 

Chef Dorsey will discuss why food is inherently political, and how it shapes our worldview & our relationships with other people. She will explore power dynamics in our society, and why it's important to center those actually affected by issues in our society (e.g., hunger) and allowing them to dictate the solutions instead of allowing those in power to paternalistically decide what's best for everyone.
