A Different Kind of Health Food at Alchemy

Few factions offer as formidable a brand of camaraderie as the cheffing community. Theirs is a line of work where banding together is extremely important as they are often on their own when it comes to solving vocational problems. They regularly lean on each other for consultation, recommendations, kitchen muscle, equipment rental, and various other means of support.

On Tuesday, June 12, Alchemy chef Ricardo Heredia is inviting several of his colleagues to his South Park eatery for an event with a cast of over 15 chefs, confectioners, and food truckers fixing up tasting-sized offerings. It figures to be a tasty fete, and one which will raise funds for The Front Burner Fund, a non-profit recently established to help cover the costs of healthcare and emergency medical bills for San Diego’s back-of-the-house restaurant staff.

The evening’s smorgasbord spread will include an octopus ceviche from Tommy Fraioli of Sea Rocket Bistro, gnocchi with chimichurri from The Red Door’s Miguel Valdez, and a blood orange caramel-filled white chocolate confection with dried hibiscus flower powder from Beatriz Ledezma of Caxao Chocolate. The rest of the event’s roster also includes chefs from the Marine Room, Gabardine, Carnitas’ Snack Shack, and Stone Brewing World Bistro and Garden; as well as food trucks Casanova Fish Tacos, Mangia Mangia, and Miss Sushi.

The event will begin at 5:15 p.m. A full list of participating chefs and food trucks is available online. Tickets can be purchased online for $25 apiece. That includes access to all of the tastings plus a drink ticket. Alchemy is located at 1503 30th Street.

I've cooked in a lot of kitchens and they're dangerous places, easy to get hurt. More significantly, most restaurants simply can't afford to provide benefits or anything resembling living wages to their employees so there is no chance to for health insurance. Injuries, incurred in or out of work, can be really dramatic for kitchen staffers. Having some sort of safety net in place may benefit a few people tremendously. I would also be interested to see if the foundation might indulge in a counseling service for injured kitchen workers as there are some systems in place, like County Medical Services, that can offset the costs of emergency healthcare. Such systems are confusing, however, and might be too daunting in terms of paperwork and process for many BOH workers to navigate.
