Oscar buzz has been in the air for weeks and the annual Hollywood who’s-who event brought plenty of mystery leading into the final hours with a deep field of candidates for best picture. The culinary industry was well-represented by Chef José Andrés, one of its finest ambassadors, helping to introduce “Roma” for its best picture nomination.

While helping actor Diego Luna introduce highlights for Best Picture nominee Roma, a film centered around the experiences of a domestic worker and a wife abandoned by her husband, Andrés gained momentum as he went on and punctuated the short speech with a call to appreciate women and immigrants.

Chef Works again served as the culinary and hospitality apparel sponsor for the Food Network South Beach Wine and Food Festival and an amazing time was had by all!

“I spoke to everyone I saw wearing Chef Works and asked them how they liked whatever it was,” said Donna Finley, senior business development associate for Chef Works. “Some had on our coats and some wore aprons. All sang our praises and absolutely loved the items they wore. I also sat in on some of the demos and presentations and the energy level was extreme!  At all events, there were enough stations of really good food that no one chef commanded all the attention (so no extremely long lines). I was also impressed by the range of chef talent from local restaurants to well-known chefs all over the U.S.”
