Eat Retreat is a creative retreat and national community of food leaders. We bring together people from across the country and across food disciplines for an immersive, four-day retreat to cook, eat and collaborate. The objective of this annual event is to exchange ideas, spark inspiration and create meaningful connections. Learning and sharing takes place formally through workshops and informally around the campfire.
Eat Retreaters are cooks, farmers, food writers, entrepreneurs, butchers, bakers, beekeepers, photographers, food system visionaries, community builders and makers of all kind. Each year, attendees arrive with curiosity and something to share and leave as part of a strong professional network. Meet the Eat Retreat alumni.
For each event, we bring together a diverse group of 35 to 40 enthusiastic and generous folks through on an online application process. Attendees are hand-selected for their expertise, collaborative skills, creativity and gusto.
Everyone brings a zealous appetite to see, try, learn, collaborate, test, taste, burn, smell and smoke everything with insane enthusiasm.
