Calling all chefs and restaurant professionals! OpenTable is a proud sponsor of the fifth annual Eat Retreat, an off-the-grid gathering of chefs, butchers, artisanal producers, and artists. This year’s event will take place Sunday, May 17 to Wednesday, May 20 at Camp Shand near the town of Cornwall, Pennsylvania (40 minutes north of Lancaster and 90 minutes northwest of Philadelphia).
Eat Retreat is a creative retreat for leaders in the food community. We bring together people from across the country and across food disciplines for an immersive, hands-on weekend of cooking, eating and collaborating. The objective of this annual event is to inspire, rejuvenate and celebrate a shared joy of food. Learning and sharing takes place formally through workshops and informally around the campfire. It’s summer camp meets the farmers market!
Attendees are selected through an online application process — see who’s coming and meet the Eat Retreat alumni here. The cost to attend is $675, but OpenTable is offering one full scholarship for a chef or restaurateur to attend Eat Retreat 2015. The scholarship includes lodging in shared cabins, food, drink, activities, workshops and campfire s’mores, but not travel or transportation.
If you’re a chef or restaurateur, apply here by February 26 to be considered for our scholarship!
