A special look at our first ever chef mixer, hosted by Table 1807

In 2021, Chef Works launched Table 1807, an online space for chefs to engage in meaningful dialogue, spark new connections, and put up their feet for once. In less than a year, we’ve grown to nearly 5,000 members who breathe life into our community with their daily posts. It only made sense that we finally connected with each other in-person!

In Chef Works’ hometown of San Diego, we brought together chefs from all throughout Southern California, from Orange County down to San Diego. We also brought Chef Works team members including CEO Neil Gross and President Joshua Gross. Parq Nightclub provided the most perfect setting with its spacious, sun-soaked atrium and indoor greenery. DJ Gusto Funk provided the beats that kept the vibe just right. And, of course, the food was impeccable! (Take a look at our full list of chefs and sponsors below.)

It’s no secret that chefs lead busy lives serving others. Our mixer allowed us to turn the tables and serve them — not just with delicious food but with networking opportunities as well. Table 1807 is happy to be that place where chefs can come together and find inspiration!

Guests also had a chance to get a custom-made apron while getting to know our Product Development team. They also had the chance to check out our new line of jackets and give our team lots of value feedback.

For 2023, we’re looking to have these events all over so that we can meet our community in person and get to know each of you.
