A platform for chefs & the industry
MINGCHU is a digital service platform, with focus on the growth of chefs and the catering industry. It is a space where chefs, restaurants, brand owners and suppliers can gather together.
We rely on our parents' food at home, and enjoy chefs' sensory feast at restaurants. We are becoming the inheritors of the next generation of food culture.
However, our awe of the culinary arts is far from enough. Just as we always ignore the existence of chefs while enjoying delicious food, we always tend to forget: chefs who really understand the food are the chefs who work hard in the kitchen. If it wasn't for them mastering advanced cooking skills and understand the past and present of food culture, many of the food cultures today would have long dissapeared.
