At The Kitchen [community] we are all one family. We brainstorm over community dinners at The Kitchen restaurants; collaborate with each other on build days in Denver, Chicago, and Los Angeles; and occasionally pull all nighters with a mug of coffee from The Kitchen [Next Door]. We value the relationships we share with each other, the communities in which we work, and our donors. We have passion and believe that what and how we eat matters. If it is good for the community, it is good for us.

Hugo is the Chef/Co-Founder of The Kitchen. Born in England, Hugo grew up eating whatever food his mother picked up that day. Sometimes it was just “a bit of kale from our garden,” other times it was “a slowly simmered leg of lamb from the nearby butcher.” Either way, it was always fresh and represented the best of the area.
