Communal Table

Share:
The day after Vinny Eng was named as one of Food & Wine's 2019 Somms of the Year, he said his thank yous for the accolade, then promptly announced that he was stepping away from the industry for a while to work on a political campaign. For those who know Vinny, this wasn't a surprise, because the industry veteran has always made it his business to act with intention, infusing every act of hospitality with an eye toward making the world a more equitable place. He joined Communal Table to talk about the COVID relief efforts he's working on for SF New Deal, explain what community organizing and mutual aid actually are, how he sees restaurants' role in a more equitable future, and what's feeding his soul throughout.  SF New Deal https://sfnewdeal.org/ Sommelier Vinny Eng’s California Winemaker Roll Call https://www.foodandwine.com/wine/sommelier-year-2019-vinny-eng We Should All Be Empathetic to Restaurant Workers, Especially Now https://www.foodandwine.com/fwpro/empathy-for-restaurant-workers Food & Wine Pro https://www.foodandwine.com/fwpro Learn more about your ad choices.
