Celebrating and rescuing
Cuba's culinary heritage!


The "CFS - Culinary Initiative" mission is to honor and modernize Cuba's rich and diverse food culture.

CFS - Awards

The CFS Awards will encourage creators to uncover Cuba's untold culinary stories. The awards will cover three categories: Documentary, Culinary Book Projects, and Outstanding Essays or Reporting.

Prizes and Guidelines to be announced in December 2018.

Chef's Exchanges

Starting in the second half of 2018, "CFS - Culinary Initiative" will organize meaningful two-way chefs exchange programs.

Our exchange programs will focus on modern cooking techniques, zero waste, and sustainable growth. 


For the past three years, we have consulted and provided with meaningful culinary literature to Cuban restauranteurs.

Now, we want to widen the scope and help food producers, home cooks and aspiring chefs with their culinary educational needs. 

How you can contribute:

The "CFS - Culinary Initiative" is a not-for-profit project. We need your help to make all of these programs a reality. Two ways of funding our initiative are:

- Donations and Partnerships.
- You can buy products from our store. All profits from the CFS store will go into financing the Culinary Initiative.

If you want to donate to the Cuban Food Stories - Culinary Initiative, we have a national 501(c)(3) not-for-profit fiscal partner based in New York City. Contact us using the form below if you are interested in Donations or Partnership.
