MAD is a Danish nonprofit that “brings together a global cooking community with a social conscience, a sense of curiosity, and an appetite for change.” What does that mean? MAD’s cornerstone is a symposium in Copenhagen which is kind of a culinary TED talk series on food topics, like sustainable agriculture, social entrepreneurship, science, health, and creativity.
Today, I donated to MAD. The symposium and its other programs sound pretty interesting. But I’ll admit the main reason I donated is because of this Omaze campaign, in which one donor will be chosen to attend the re-opening night of Noma in 2018. Noma is of course the four-time winner of best restaurant in the world but it closed down in 2016. Wish me luck.
