When Ned Elliot opened Foreign & Domestic in 2010, he was introduced to Twitter as a means of creating a dialogue with his peers. Elliot, who began cooking when he was 15 and went on to leave the University of Montana to attend CIA Hyde Park and stage at various restaurants around New York, was intrigued by this phenomenon. As he watched his network expand and fill with fellow chefs he respected, he recognized social media as a valuable platform for communication, but also recognized its drawbacks...and so Indie Chefs Week was born.
