The Outstanding table is far reaching, welcoming new faces wherever it may be. Our aim is to explore culture’s many origin stories, to get curious about our common humanity.
The backdrop may look different, but the experience is everlasting – a meal shared from communal platters; a “cheers” in many languages; a celebration of farmer, chef and place. The best recipe for meaningful conversation is a different point of view, that which only comes from experience.
Celebrating communities across the globe.
