Charlie Trotter Days. Fund a Scholar.
August 15-19, 2018
The Trotter Project is pleased to announce the return of Charlie Trotter Days, taking place August 15-19, 2018. Charlie Trotter Days is a five-day celebration when America’s food and drink communities come together and offer a beverage, dish, or menu in honor of culinary legend Chef Charlie Trotter. Now in its fifth year, Charlie Trotter Days is a way for the restaurant industry and public to support The Trotter Project's young scholars and its Pillars of Excellence Program – an initiative designed to educate, mentor, and provide scholarships for culinary and hospitality talent in underserved communities.
