Refettorio Montreal by Massimo BotturaNovember 6th, 2019
La Tablée des Chefs has just announced that its partnership with Massimo Bottura is moving forward: a Refettorio community table, where meals are prepared from food deemed unsaleable by supermarkets, will open in downtown Montreal. Conceived by Bottura as a pop-up project for Milan’s 2015 World Fair, Refettorio is now spreading across the world, from Milan to Rio via London and now Montreal. With the collaboration of several top Canadian chefs, the first Refettorio to settle in the country will begin operations in downtown’s St. George’s Anglican Church in fall 2020. Owner of Osteria Francescana in the Italian city of Modena, Massimo Bottura is considered one of the best chefs in the world. He and his wife launched the Food for Soul Foundation to manage Refettorio and promote social inclusion through the fight against food waste.
